When asked about Pilates, Beckham has said Pilates has helped him get into the best shape of his life and reduce his body fat. “I do an hour of Pilates a day. It is fantastic and fitness-wise, I am the best I have been for a long time. I am in the best shape in years.”

Whether you do a 15-minute express Pilates workout or an hour like Beckham, you’re sure to feel the burn and see the results !
