Victoria Beckham‘s toned figure, fabulous wardrobe and hair and makeup are always on point. But while the former Spice Girls singer and wife of footballer David Beckham undoubtedly lucked out on the genes front, she also works hard to stay in shape. Victoria previously shared details of her “very, very disciplined” diet and fitness routine, revealing that it’s what makes her happiest.

While many of us are snoozing away early in the morning, mum-of-four Victoria is already pounding the treadmill in the gym (granted, it helps if said gym is only downstairs, but still, her drive is impressive). In fact, the fashion designer spends two hours working out every morning, and claims it’s something she has to do to sustain her busy lifestyle.

Victoria told The Guardian’s Weekend magazine that her exercise routine begins between 5.30am and 6am with a 7km run on the treadmill, which is “a mix of uphill fast walking, jogging, running. That’s the only time I watch TV – boxsets, documentaries – so I look forward to that. It takes 45 minutes.”

This is followed by a session with a personal trainer at her private gym. “30 minutes legs, 30 minutes arms, toning and conditioning, then loads of planks and that kind of thing for my core,” Victoria said, adding that she follows the routine all the way through with no breaks at the weekend, but may take time out to take her children Romeo, Cruz and Harper to school on weekdays.

Victoria insists that the routine is “a really positive thing for me. It’s part of who I am now, and I really enjoy it”. The star doesn’t just stick to home exercise, either – Victoria has been spotted at LA’s SoulCycle in the past.

As well as her exercise routine, Victoria often shares details of her diet, and once said that she was considering going vegan after taking her family out for a plant-based meal. She doesn’t even indulge after her two-hour workouts, instead choosing to drink apple cider vinegar each morning, before breakfasts including green smoothies, homemade cereals, or scrambled eggs with smoked salmon.

Victoria has said she finds her regimented lifestyle “empowering”, and adds that it’s not just about the way she looks, but that it’s for her mental health too. “It’s how it makes you feel. It really gets me ready for the day,” Victoria told The Guardian. “It clears my mind. It’s also where I have lots of ideas. It’s a time when I’m not on the phone, I’m not with the children, I’m not with David; I can literally just be left alone.”
