With the coronavirus pandemic still raging on in the UK and the gyms closed, many people are struggling with their lockdown fitness regimes.
However, Meghan Markle is reportedly making an exercise regime still part of her daily life – as she always has – and you can do the same.
Roberta Fiorito, co-host of the Royally Obsessed podcast, has given an insight into the exercise habits of Prince Harry’ s wife and how you can take inspiration for your own workouts.
According to Fiorito, Meghan, 39, bases her exercise all around wellness and the connection between the body and the mind.
The expert says she is less fussed about competitive sports, and is more focused on centring herself and finding balance, with activities such as yoga and pilates.
Meghan has even branded pilates “hands down the best thing you could do for your body” in the past.
Meanwhile, the brunette’s mother Doria was a yoga instructor, so Meghan has been practicing it since the age of seven.
Fiorito told Harper’s BAZAAR : “Meghan is obsessed with yoga and is really into the wellness and meditation side of working out… she is into calming, meditative practices.”
It’s claimed Meghan opts for 15-minute yoga sessions throughout the day.
As well as yoga and pilates, Meghan also reportedly takes her dogs on walks and runs. However, she is said to have cut this down as she’s grown older.
Fioriot continued: “As she has gotten older, running has become hard on her knees, so she doesn’t run outside as much as she used to.”
While Meghan, Harry, and 20-month-old son Archie are locked down in their Montecito, California home, Fiorito says she has ample amenities on hand to keep fit.
These include a swimming pool, indoor gym, a wet and dry sauna in the home, and a playground outside for Archie.
Although many of us won’t have swimming pools or gyms in our home, you can easily achieve a Meghan-inspired workout from your home.
Fiorito recommends using an online streaming service like Obé, which includes a full workout–including yoga and Pilates–into a 28-minute session.
There are also tons of YouTube videos out there that you can use for free.
It’s also claimed Meghan likes a lot of variety in her workouts, so try breaking up your sessions into four parts. This could include five minutes of cardio (like the treadmill), five minutes of stretching, 30 minutes of circuit training, and five minutes of cool-down stretching.
If none of that appeals, why not take yourself or your dog out for a run? You’ll have a Duchess-worthy body in no time.
