Posh and Becks take on Pilates

Filed under: Pilates News — Susan on September 3, 2013

They are both known for their beautiful bodies and, sometimes weird, exercise regimes. Now it seems that David and Victoria Beckham have turned to Pilates classes in Pilates classes pilates classes Pilates classes in order to maintain their status as one of the fittest, most attractive couples on the planet.

The couple have recently embarked on what some people might consider to be a punishing Pilates regime. Far from taking the gentle Pilates route, they have been spending a lot of time on the traditional Pilates reformer table and the even more punishing Cadillac Trapeze device, which is well-known for whipping people into shape quickly.

The Cadillac Trapeze is a Pilates contraption which aids practitioners in stretching further via a system of arm and leg springs, which can be suspended from or pushed up against.

David and Victoria, who are 38 and 39 respectively, took part in the gruelling gym session whilst on a break in LA. Proving that they take their fitness very seriously, they carried out tough Pilates routines at a time when anyone else would be relaxing in the sunshine.

A source commented:

“It looks a bit like a medieval torture device, but it is absolutely the best way to exercise virtually every muscle group. Victoria has been doing Pilates longer than David so is more confident with the moves but he is very enthusiastic.”

Pilates classes, like the ones the Beckhams took part in, have long been a favourite of celebrities, who are impressed with the amazing core toning results of the practice.
