He Lives an Active Lifestyle
"You don't have to go and spend a huge amount of money going to the gym,"explained during a recent panel. "Three or four times a week I walk my daughter to school instead of driving her, or she bikes home with me. It's the little things that make a difference." His relationship with F45, then, isn't surprising; it offers quick 45 minute group workouts "that are fast, fun, and get results."
He Plays Sports…Other Than Soccer
Beckham recently courted a new sport. "found a new sport," he said with a tennis emoji, "back is gonna hurt in the morning but who cares," he captioned a recent post of himself playing paddle tennis.
He Trains Hard
When David hits the gym, he doesn't waste his time. "Just a gentle workout to start the day," he joked in a recent Instagram caption, executing a tough looking ab roll. When he runs on the treadmill, he increases his exertion by wearing a weighted vest.
His Drink of Choice? Coffee
David regularly shares photos of himself with his "cup or three" of morning coffee. "While past studies hinted that coffee might have a dark side, newer research suggests that it may actually have health benefits," says the Mayo Clinic. "When newer studies adjusted for such factors, they found a possible association between coffee and decreased mortality. Coffee may offer some protection against:
- Parkinson's disease
- Type 2 diabetes
- Liver disease, including liver cancer
- Heart attack and stroke."
He Cooks His Own Meals
In an interview with The Guardian, David's wife, Victoria, revealed that he does all the family's cooking. And, he regularly shares photos of himself whipping up meals on social media.
