“The ball was only just beginning as Kitty and her mother walked up the great staircase, flooded with light, and lined with flowers and footmen in powder and red coats…”

Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina portrayed late 19th century aristocrats in their element. They attended royal balls, dressed in luxurious gowns of silk and satin. The jet set royals of the 21st century still know how to throw a party with flowing dresses, but they’ve added gore-tex and polyester cotton blend to their wardrobes. That’s because female royalty is at the forefront of the global fitness movement, leading healthy lives and setting a great example with physical fitness.

HFR founder and four-time “No. 1 Fitness Trainer in the World” Samir Becic and his team investigated the fitness routines of the world’s nobility. What we found was a group of women in the highest echelon of athletes in the world. Our methodology considered their fitness level, nutritional habits, age, medical issues and how they coped with them, and involvement and promotion of healthy lifestyle within their country.

“These fit royals are great trend setters for the new generation in terms of healthy lifestyle. I am impressed with royals all over the world for their conscious contributions to healthy lifestyle. They are participating in the world of the 21st century, where active lifestyle plays a crucial role in world health. ” – Samir Becic
