Just three years ago, Victoria said she hated working out. But the 36-year-old fashion designer says she now maintains her super-skinny physique by running four miles to five miles a day.
Victoria (a.k.a. – Posh Spice), 36, and David revealed their workout routines in the latest issue of the British edition of InStyle magazine.
“Victoria’s obsessed with working out,” says David, who plays for the L.A. Galaxy. “She’s in the gym every morning. You run, what, five miles?” Victoria, the mother of three young boys, chimes in: “[I run] Four, five miles every day on the treadmill. For me, I like the fact that, mentally, I can get off whenever I want.”
Meanwhile, David, who’s known as much for his sizzling six-pack as for his soccer skills, dislikes the treadmill and prefers to exercise outdoors.
“I hate running and not getting anywhere,” he says. “I like to be outside. I like to run on the roads late at night. When I’ve got a day off, I’ll go to the gym with Victoria.”
Ironically, Victoria — whose scary-skinny figure has fueled rumors of an eating disorder over the years — used to hate working out, but that all changed when she moved to youth-obsessed Los Angeles in 2008.
In 2007, Beckham said: “I really don’t like the gym; in fact, I can’t stand it. Maybe it’s the whole getting sweaty thing, but it’s just not me.”
While Posh has denied she starves herself, she admits she tries to eat healthy foods and is vigilant about portion size.
“I eat really healthy,” she said in 2008. “I love Japanese food, lots of fish, any sort of fish, any sort of vegetable, lots of fruit, that kind of thing.
“I think there’s a big difference between someone having an eating disorder and someone who is controlled about what they eat.”
