Twins Focus On Getting A Double Dose Of Fitness
Idential twins Miriam and Michelle Carolus have been getting plenty of second looks, not just because they look the same, but because of their eye-catching beauty, times two. The sisters, 29, started sharing pictures of the two together, and have made their passion for fitness into a budding modeling career.
“We make sure we eat the same, exercise the same – everything the same,” said Michelle to Barcroft.
The two not only workout together, at the same time, they even call each other to compare calories when they are apart. The twins prove that their curves are the result of hard work.
They go on to squat up to 100 times each hour over eight to nine hours – building up to a maximum of 2,000 squats per day each. Wow!
“We will work out the exact same and make sure that if one of us has done more the other will have to catch up. We try to do a couple of thousand squats a day to keep in shape. It won’t be all at the same time. It will usually be stretched over something like nine hours.”
“We would never consider surgery on our butts – our workout plan pretty much takes care of that,” said five-foot tall Miriam.
“And when you do it naturally through hard work it makes you feel a lot better about yourself.”
The siblings, who live next-door to each other in Miami, were extremely close growing up, prompting their mother to try to separate them.
They were put in separate classes at school, but reunited at college to study to become medical technicians. They now work in the same doctors office.
Their looks have drawn attention throughout their lives but it was only two years ago that they decided to start branding themselves as the ‘Double Dose Twins’.
“We’ve had a lot of bookings for magazines and offers to travel. Modeling is actually a lot of fun.”
To maintain their identical measurements, they have enlisted the help of Bahiem King, 30, owner and founder of King Fitness, to create a tailored regime.
He combines a mixture of boxing, MMA, plyometrics, soft-touch CrossFit, weight training and a lot of squats to achieve the women’s ‘part Beyonce, part Serena Williams’ look.
They also mirror each other’s diets down to extreme detail, putting the exact same calories in smoothies, salads and protein shakes and fat burners.
Miriam, who like her sister measures 36-22-46, said: “We generally stick to a healthy diet and it’s the same all the time. We are very strict about this.
“It’s like a mirror. If I ever want to know if I’m looking good or not I will just look at my sister.”
