Yes, that’s right! Pilates is not an exercise exclusive to women. In fact, more and more men have discovered the health benefits of this discipline.
That’s why a growing number of professional male athletes use Pilates to ensure a long and injury free sports career. And so did the former England star.
He was introduced to Pilates while on loan at AC Milan. The Italians insisted that all their players had to take up Pilates to help them with their balance and suppleness. The fitness regime has reduced Becks’ body fat dramatically. When he was asked about Pilates, he said: “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”. And adds: “I am in the best shape in years”.
