She once claimed to never exercise, but over the years Victoria Beckham has certainly changed her stance on working out. However, while she used to be happy going to exclusive gym classes and running on her home treadmill, Posh has really upped her game in recent months by hiring family friend Bobby Rich to train her and husband David. Gone are the high intensity cardio sessions as they have been replaced by weight training and we’re told that the 47-year-old fashion designer has never felt better.

For years Vic was primarily focused on fitness and weight loss, she loved being toned but would always say no to weights as part of her work out routine as she was always scared of bulking up,” our insider says. “No matter how much trainers tried to change her mind, she always preferred the high interval cardio training - and used to say she was addicted to the high she would get post workout. She was a huge fan of spinning and was a die-hard Soul Cycle fan in LA. But during these past few months she's switched her focus to weight training, with squats and lunges and it's completely revitalised her. She's actually in the best shape of her life, she is unbelievably strong and toned - and her body is at its peak.”

Victoria – who has four children, Brooklyn, 22, Romeo, 19, Cruz, 16 and 10-year-old Harper, with David – has always been very disciplined with her diet and mainly eats steamed fish and lots of green vegetables, including broccoli, kale, asparagus, beans and brussels sprouts. And while all these still form the basis of her diet she has had to adjust it as she trains more and is really seeing the results.

“Medically the advice is that the older we get, the more we need to do weight training to keep muscle mass and bone density - and of course if done right, then there's no bulk,” our source explains. “For years, exercise to Vic was all about burning those calories and burning off any fat. But now, in order to work out effectively, she needs to eat a lot more calories - that was quite a mindset switch for her, and something that took a while for her to get used to. With her there's always a fear of gaining weight, and so it did take a bit of adjusting too - but her trainer is super motivational and she still has a very healthy diet.”

As well as feeling great, Victoria is loving spending more time with David, 46, and says working out together is having lots of benefits.

“For her, there's the added bonus of working out with David - and having him guide her progress,” our insider says. “It's one of the areas that he can take the lead on, and be the coach and motivator to her as well - usually it's her who takes the lead on most areas of their life, but in this department, David has been weight training for years. Vic is now so fit and strong and David is loving the new her. He has always been impressed with the 100% effort she puts in and says her determination and refusal to quit no matter how tough a work out puts her in the league of super athletes.”
