King Constantine II of Greece won a gold medal at the 1960 Summer Olympics for sailing in the Dragon Class.

King Albert I of the Belgians liked horseback riding.
Prince Albert, The Duke of York (the future King George VI) kicked-off a charity soccer game between Tottenham Hotspur and Corinthians at White Hart Lane.
Prince Philip's uncle, Lord Louis Mountbatten, was a polo player.
Lord Louis wrote a book An Introduction to Polo under the pseudonym of "Marco".

How Do Royals Exercise?

How do royals choose to do their regular exercise to keep in shape and healthy? do they practice with classes, go to the gym, practice a sport, go jogging...?

this sprung to mind as i read this article that mentions that letizia practices iyengar yoga. she revealed this herself during one of her engagements. i also remember reading she did zumba classes with her friends.

El yoga Iyengar, secreto para la serenidad de Doña Letizia | loc | EL MUNDO

we know that lots of royals ski, obviously, that some are joggers (charlene, frederik and mary spring to mind) and that some horseride.

I hope some of the British royals are doing laps in that indoor pool at Buckingham Palace that Diana used to swim in.

There are exercise rooms at Fredensborg and Amalienborg where certainly Mary (and to a lesser degree PH) has been known to work out regularly. - They are also to be used by the employees BTW.
Mary has had several personal trainers (apparently hired on a need basis. I.e. when she needs to regain her figure after a pregnancy) and she has been boxing. (Perhaps still is).
She is often seen jogging around Amalienborg or at the park at Fredensborg.

Frederik has admitted to be a person who work out for a purpose (like a specific run) rather than for pleasure.

QMII used to dance ballet, but not anymore. Her knees and back can't handle it.

Our Marie has been photographed jogging around Schackenborg.

I believe Máxima used to go to 'Fitness First' in the center of The Hague, at least at the beginning of the marriage. I am not sure what she is doing now. King WA usually goes jogging on the estate De Horsten.

I am doing Iyengar yoga too. If you are advanced enough -which I am not- you can do it daily on your own and just go to a teacher once a week. Or in the case of HM the teacher may come to her. It does explain HM's great posture as Iyengar is all about straightening the spine and doing the movements as perfect as possible.

Victoria and Daniel both jog and go to the gym several times a week. There are photos of them jogging in Öland on their summer holiday.

They are also seen often cycling at the Haga Park, or walking with Estelle. Daniel loves to play golf and he is also playing floorball. According to Svensk Damtidning he plays floorball once a week with his friends.

Daniel and Haakon were also seen jogging together when they attended at queen Margrethe's 75th birthday last April.

very interesting info, thanks for posting!

interesting that maxima was a member of 'Fitness First', which if it is the same as in other countries is a fairly 'standard' gym (ie. not a 'club' kind of gym, or a membership only sort of thing, but open to everyone).

that's interesting mulher. is the gym mainly for the use of the royals - do the same rules as in the british royal household apply? when a royal wants to use the pool, for example, any staff who are in the pool must leave. the danes would strike me as more down to earth in this respect.
