Nicole Richie's exercise regime

Many people wonder how Nicole Richie stays so slim ?!

What is her exercise regime ?!

What exercise does she do during pregnancy !?

Well the answer is Pilates!

Nicole Richie was spotted on the weekend leaving her Pilates class in Los Angeles ..

Here is a very brief piece of information on Pilates ..

Pilates is a complete exercise method developed by its founder Joseph Pilates over the course of a lifetime dedicated to improving physical and mental health.
Pilates focuses on building your body's core strength and improving your posture through a series of low repetition low impact stretching and conditioning exercises.
By core strength, we are talking about your back, abdominal and pelvic muscles.
Through pilates, you will be able to develop these muscles without adding bulk, increasing your flexibility and agility and at the same time toning your stomach and thigh muscles.
Pilates goes far beyond your core muscles however and not only provides a complete body workout (you will be working muscles you didn't even know you had!), but also helps you develop an awareness of how your body works, helping your mind and body to work in harmony.

As it is a low impact exercise i see why it is great for Nicole Richie during her pregnancy.
