If you needed any more proof that ‘wellness’ has become a status symbol, look no further than Pippa Middleton. The Royal sister-in-law and noted green smoothie enthusiast seems to be taking her health coaching ambitions rather seriously.
Earlier this year it was reported Pippa had enrolled in a course through The Institute for Integrative Nutrition — of which both Pete Evans and Sarah Wilson are alumni — and was putting her nutritional learnings into practice by creating recipes for her newborn niece, Princess Charlotte of Cambridge.
Evidently, the 31-year-old has now taken that ‘Why not?’ philosophy one step further by creating her own 10-week fitness program for anyone interested in attaining a Royal physique.
Pippa’s “10 week tone-up” is accessible on the website of upmarket UK grocery store Waitrose, and provides workout suggestions and tips on a week-by-week basis. (Post continues after gallery.)
She recommends a variety of workouts, ranging from lunges and walking to jumping on a trampoline. Evidently, she’s also a big fan of exercising outdoors.
“Fresh air, scenery and nature can all add to that feel-good factor, so exercising outdoors will invigorate the soul and flush the cheeks for a healthy glow. Check whether your local park has an outdoor gym, and make the most of your natural resources and surroundings, such as a local footpath or trail route. You could even do my push-up routine using just a park bench!” the former party planner and author of the widely-panned Celebrate writes.
"It’s easy to put off exercise and reason that life is too busy to get fit. But the truth is – it’s not. Exercise can easily be incorporated into your life; all it requires is a change of mentality."
