Coronation Street star regains figure with Pilates

Filed under: Pilates News — Cathy on June 22, 2010

Now that the summer has definitely arrived, various celebrities have taken the opportunity to show off their Pilates honed figures.

Coronation Street actress Samia Smith, who plays hairdresser Maria Connor in the popular soap opera, left to have a baby last year. She returned in June sporting a svelte figure, which she credited to Pilates.

Smith, 27, was reported by Closer magazine to have gained two stones (12.5 kg) whilst she was pregnant, but amazingly lost this three months after the birth of her daughter Freya. She has now slimmed down to 7st 7lbs (47.5 kg) and is back to wearing size 8 dresses again.

Revealing that she had achieved this through a combination of a healthy diet, walking and Pilates classes in Pilates classes pilates classes Pilates classes, she commented:

“I love my flat tummy, but my boobs have all but disappeared.”

Someone else who has managed this impressive feat is Carly Cole, wife of Premiership and England football player Joe Cole.

The WAG, who gave birth to daughter Ruby in March this year, used to be a personal trainer, and has put her knowledge of fitness to good use. Using a mixture of resistance training, running and Pilates, she has been exercising every day and has managed to shed the two stones she gained during her pregnancy, just in time to accompany her husband to the World Cup in South Africa.
