In a video from her shoot with Sports Illustrated, Ronda says "I really do believe that there shouldn't be just one cookie-cutter body type that everyone is aspiring to be," which we're interpreting as an excuse to douse ourselves in watercolors and take to the beach.

"I hope that the impression that everyone that sees the next Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue [has] is that strong and healthy is the new sexy," she says. "And that the standard of women's bodies is going into a realistic and socially healthy direction."

Preach, Ronda, preaaaaaach.
