David Beckham London, June 22 (ANI): Soccer star David Beckham’s secret to fit body has been revealed - body-bending Pilates exercises.

The 34-year-old English footballer was introduced to Pilates - a stretching and breathing routine particularly popular with women - on loan at AC Milan.

“I do an hour of Pilates a day. The medical set-up at Milan is fantastic and fitness-wise I am the best I have been for a long time,” the Sun quoted Beckham as saying.

The hour-long exercise has reduced Becks’ body fat from 13.7 per cent to a super-toned 8.5 per cent.

Meanwhile, Becks is returning to LA Galaxy next month.

He and wife Victoria, 35, have signed up for Pilates classes at Los Angeles’ exclusive Sports Club. (ANI)
