Pippa Middleton has always been a keen sportswoman, but shared that since becoming a mother, fitness has taken a backseat – but she has some seriously intense future plans in the pipeline.

Speaking to activewear brand Hoka about how her focus has shifted since becoming a mother, Pippa previously said: "Family life and motherhood has consumed much of my spare time. Running and fitness still form part of my weekly routine but not to the level it was before. I suppose, my running has been more after babies and toddlers than crossing finish lines, which I’m fine with — for now!"

Princess Kate's sister went on to share how she stays slim, explaining: "Being active with son in the park or playground, transporting him on the back of my bike, and buggy running when he was a baby have been ways in which I have been able to include outdoor exercise whilst being a hands-on mummy.

"It's helped manage my weight, is time efficient and gives us both the chance to enjoy the fresh air and explore the great outdoors."
