If you happen to see Pippa Middleton hanging from straps attached to the ceiling any time soon, don’t be too alarmed. The Duchess of Cambridge‘s sister is simply taking part in her latest fitness regime, known as the TRX System, or total resistance exercise, which was developed by a former U.S. Navy SEAL.
‘It builds strength and sculpts the body,’ explains Pippa, 34, who is best known for her pert posterior. ‘You can burn up to 400 calories in a TRX class. It’s really a basic form of exercise using two straps to create an infinite number of moves.’
Pippa, who lives in a £17 million Chelsea townhouse with her hedge fund-manager husband James Matthews, adds: ‘The adjustable hanging straps aren’t as daunting as you might think. They’re simple to use, adaptable and easy to transport — you can even mount them on the garage ceiling.’
Make sure she’s safely strapped in, James!

Pass the vinegar, Ken.
