I’m a PT celebrity – here’s how David Beckham’s workout can blast your belly fat fast

DAVID Beckham made a name for himself playing football, which naturally helped him stay in top form.

But after retiring from the game, it was still essential for the 47-year-old to maintain the physique he had built over his career.

The Sun previously revealed how his wife, fashion designer Victoria, 47, stays in shape through the use of equipment like the TRX.

But now it’s David’s turn and that’s where personal trainer Gunnar Peterson comes in.

Gunnar has a host of celebrity clients including Kim Kardashian, JLo and he also helped Rebel Wilson through his ‘year of health’.

The F45 workout sports chief has now created a workout alongside Becks that can help you blast belly fat with a 4:4:2 class workout.

This signature workout is dubbed DB45 and allows those who participate in it to train like Becks.

The 59-year-old PT said: “DB45 combines the drills David has used in training throughout his career.

“Training includes explosive, power-focused, multi-directional drills.”

The training focuses on typical football positions, from defense to attack.

Gunnar explained: “Station 1 is still a cardio machine. Station 2 to Station 5 will include functional exercises. In the middle of the court, you will see multi-directional cardio and agility drills.

“Exercises in Stations Six – Stations Nine will challenge even the fittest limbs by moving them forward, backward, side to side, on the floor and above the floor .

“Stations 10 and 11 attack positions with more emphasis on maintaining agility.”

Alternate timings between 32 seconds on, 15 seconds off, and 23 seconds on, followed by an additional 20 seconds of rest.

Then you complete the ultimate finisher, with 7 x 30 seconds of bodyweight exercises.

FOLD IT LIKE BECKS

When creating the program, Gunnar said that many features of the football field were linked.

He explained: “The format mimics a 4:4:2 football formation, with stations representing typical football positions including goal, defence, midfield and attack.

“The programming will reflect the style of training that relates to these positions.

“There are also certain aspects that also highlight David’s career, for example: training times reflect shirt numbers throughout his iconic career.”

However, Gunnar added that David’s physique was not entirely at F45.

“The F45 is a new style of training that he was introduced to, greatly appreciates and believes in.

“F45 is truly designed for everyone – from the fittest athletes to your regular member.

“Workout programming and design always includes regressions or progressions to challenge members at the correct level,” he said.

Working out regularly, participating in high intensity workouts like this class, and being in a calorie deficit can all contribute to weight loss.

F45 offers trial subscriptions with walk-in sessions costing £25. You can get a 14 day trial for £39.
