Get fit the fun way with celeb-inspired workouts
There was a surge in the popularity of Pilates after it was revealed to be Pippa Middleton's exercise of choice.
The trim royal bridesmaid attends classes at a small studio in London, and she wrote a testimonial on the fitness centre's website.
"Over the past few months I have noticed a huge difference in my core strength and posture," she said.
"From breathing techniques, muscle toning to overall flexibility and relaxation, my Pilates sessions have become something of a weekly necessity that keeps me fit, happy and energised."
Other devotees include Jennifer Garner and Kate Winslet – who attributed her weight loss a few years ago to daily 20-minute Pilates sessions
