The workout Meghan Markle calls “the best thing for your body”
She says Megaformer Pilates can change your body immediately!
Meghan Markle is refreshingly honest about the efforts she puts into exercise, bucking the trend for A-listers who suggest it’s all about genetics – although they certainly help.
Markle’s mother is a yoga instructor so she started the discipline herself as a child and has continued it ever since. “That practice is in my blood,” she told Women’s Health UK.
However, it’s not yoga but a certain type of Pilates practice that the royal bride-to-be credits as having changed her body.
“Pilates Platinum is hands down the best thing you could do for your body,” she says, talking about the small studio chain in LA that’s founded by her personal trainer, turned close friend, (and now potential bridesmaid) Heather Dorak.
“There are so many workouts that you try out once and never go back to; Heather’s studio is the complete opposite,” she testifies. “You keep coming back for several reasons: first off, your body changes immediately…give it two classes and you will see a difference; second, Heather is amazing — as an instructor, as a friend, she is inspiring in every way; lastly, the people in class are cool, unpretentious, and motivating…and that is a testament to Heather’s energy.”
The dynamic Pilates practice is taught on a Megaformer, a souped-up version of the punishing Reformer machine, which increases resistance on isolated muscle groups during each exercise – and works them to failure point. In the case of Pilates Platinum, Markle says “the results are incredible,” and quite clearly, they are.
Inevitably, Megaformer Pilates is set to be big news for 2018 and flying the flag for it in London is Studio Lagree, an LA-export (of course), which has studios in the City, Canary Wharf and White City Place.
Don’t expect rest periods. This workout intends to burn the maximum number of calories in a minimal amount of time, and most efficiently develop muscle tone, strength, balance and flexibility.
