It appears that Meghan Markle's commitment to health has nothing to do with her upcoming royal wedding. The former actress has been a workout devotee for years, training with Craig McNamee, CSCS, while living in Toronto, Canada. Personal training aside, Markle has also been linked to Megaformer Pilates classes, telling Harper's Bazaar that it's "hands down the best thing you could do for your body."
Markle is specifically a fan of Pilates Platinum, a small studio chain located in Los Angeles that's founded by her friend and personal trainer Heather Dorak. "There are so many workouts that you try out once and never go back to; Heather's studio is the complete opposite," she explains. "You keep coming back for several reasons: first off, your body changes immediately … give it two classes and you will see a difference; second, Heather is amazing—as an instructor, as a friend, she is inspiring in every way; lastly, the people in class are cool, unpretentious, and motivating … and that is a testament to Heathe'’s energy."
The classes are taught on a Megaformer, which the website describes as a "revolutionary version" of the typical Pilates Reformer machine. Head over Pilates Platinum for more on the workout, and shop our editor-approved workout essentials below.
