Victoria Beckham Hates the Gym Too!

After reading this quote from Posh herself, Victoria Beckham, I thought about all the Stars, They're Just Like Us features we see in glossy tabloids...

Here's more:

"I really don't like the gym, in fact I can't stand it," she says with a laugh. "Maybe it's the whole getting sweaty thing, but it's just not me. I tried cycling in Spain but maybe my bum's too small as it just wasn't comfortable. I want to get fit, though, so I'm exploring some different options. I like what I've heard about Pilates - just sitting in a room, stretching and breathing. Sounds much more civilized."

Could you imagine if Posh was on the reformer next to you, swearing her bloody head off because Pilates does, in fact, make you sweat? Hilarious.

Victoria is not, and never has any ambitions to be, Sporty Spice. Like the majority of us, she hates the gym and is looking for the easy way out. It just goes to show that while money can do a lot of things for you fitness wise (celeb trainers, ritzy gym memberships, sweet gear, etc), it can't do the work for you. Not even if you're Victoria Beckham.

I don't think she works out like crazy or anything like some celebs (think Madonna and Teri Hatcher), but she probably doesn't eat a whole lot. I read somewhere that for the Spice Girls reunion tour, she tried to get the other Spice Girls to go on some crazy diet of seaweed shakes and fish (it was something like 1000 calories a day). I guess anyone would be a toothpick eating like that. She does have a really tiny bone structure though.

she never said she didn't go to the gym, she said she doesn't like it. true, she is extremely skinny, but you can't dislike her just for that and then make assumptions about what she doesn and does not to to stay that way. you don't know what she does. for all we know, she has a trainer and works out everysingle day in the privacy of her giant home so that busybodies like us will leave her alone.

This is a joke. She never used to be that skinny so she wasn't BORN that way. She STAYS that way because she's freaking anorexic!! Simple as.

I think Fit was posting this because Posh hates to go to the gym! Not necessarily because she is a fit role model.
