Secret to Pippa Middleton’s Tight Body: Pilates

Pippa MiddletonOne of the most acclaimed presences at the wedding of Prince William and Katherine Middleton was the bride’s sister and bridesmaid, Pippa, who wowed in a long white dress that made the best of her slender and toned body. Those hoping to get as fit as she is, should know that it’s all down to Pilates.

After the wedding, paparazzi snapped Pippa on vacation on a yacht, looking unbelievably fit in a two-piece white swimsuit, which only generated more interest in her and whether she kept to a diet and regular exercise.

As it turns out, she does. The Daily Mail did some digging around and learned that Pippa’s favorite physical exercise is Pilates.

In a testimonial on the website of the London gym she visits, Pippa says Pilates is ideal for someone as busy as she is. It’s a great way of staying in shape, while also allowing her to unwind and de-stress.

She goes to a small gym in Parson’s Green near her London apartment, the Mail reports.

“Whether it’s 7am in the morning or 7pm at night I always leave feeling calm, refreshed and invigorated,” Pippa wrote in the testimonial about the benefits of Pilates.

“Over the past few months I have noticed a huge difference in my core strength and posture and couldn’t recommend Margot more highly as an instructor,” she adds.

Indeed, while Pilates doesn’t lead to immediate and considerable weight loss, it does do wonders for the posture because it strengthens and tones the muscles.
