Brigitte Macron was spotted with her husband, French President Emmanuel Macron, last week while they both attended the G7 summit in Germany. Brigitte arrived at the summit welcoming ceremony with an elegant all-beige ensemble. He also put on a sports suit to go Nordic walking with the other partners of the G7 leaders.

Personal trainer Pat Henry suggested that Brigitte’s slim frame is thanks to a combination of Pilates and symmetrical exercises.
“She doesn’t wear heavy weights as they could raise her ass or legs,” she explained.
