Team manager Harry Redknapp has reportedly enrolled his team in both yoga and pilates classes in a bid to boost the fitness levels of the failing squad. The manager himself has apparently taken part in some of the pilates classes himself, along with his struggling team.

Spurs are competing both in the Premiere league and the European championship this year, so the team need to really be at the peak of physical fitness should they stand a chance of succeeding. This is thought to be the reason why Redknapp has taken to involving his players and coaches in yoga and pilates classes. The yoga instructor who takes the classes is the same one who instructed striker Brad Friedel at his old club Aston Villa.

The players and coaches must now take part in yoga and pilates sessions before each football training session, in what is an unexpected move by Redknapp who is known for his more traditional management style. When asked about the new yoga and pilates regime he said:

‘It’s great for all the players. Brad Friedel started it here. He brought a lady in and if it’s good enough for Brad with the shape he’s in at 40, then it’s good enough for the rest of us’.

The Spurs team are not the only fans of pilates, Manchester United veteran Ryan Giggs is also said to be a fan.
