The World Cup is in full swing, but some attention is being pulled off the field and towards the VIP area in the stands.
The WAGs (Wives And Girlfriends) of the World Cup players are unsurprisingly extremely fit! From personal trainers, to workout franchise owners, to singers/performers, these successful women hold their fitness and health at the same level as their partners. Here are 6 of the fittest couples of the World Cup.
1. James Rodriguez & Helga Lovekaty
When the Munich midfielder isn’t testing his fitness on the field, he can often be found working out with his girlfriend – 26-year-old Russian model and fitness enthusiast, Helga Lovekaty.
2. Dele Alli & Ruby Mae
The girlfriend of England midfield superstar Dele Alli has become the face (and body) of a number of UK fitness and fashion lines over the years, including brands like In The Style, Miss Pap and Lipsy London to name a few. Alli might be scoring the goals, but his girlfriend is landing a lot of deals in the athleisure industry.
3. Carol Cabrino & Marquinhos (Marcos Aoás Corrêa)
Her fitspo selfies splashed across Instagram and Pinterest display some incredible abs, along with her grueling workout videos and homemade healthy recipes. But, the most popular snaps are partner workouts with husband, Paris Saint-Germain, and Brazil national team player, Marquinhos. Couple goals much?
4. Gerard Pique & Shakira
This is one wife that needs no introduction and is often noticed by her adoring fans well before athlete husband, Spain and Barcelona center-back, Gerard Pique. On the international stage, Shakira is an incredible performer and gifted singer, but off stage, she isn’t half-assing any workout. The “Hips Don’t Lie” singer works with New York Studio InMotion, owner Anna Kaiser who explains “She loves to mix it up and go out and play sports like tennis, squash, and paddleboarding. One session might consist of a ballet combo and barre exercises, then kickboxing and sports training, hip-hop, or Pilates.”
5. Thomas Vermaelen & Polly Parsons
The TV presenter, Pilates enthusiast, and lingerie model keeps her fitness in check along with her husband, center-back for Spanish club Barcelona and the Belgium national team, Thomas Vermaelen. With their 2 sons, the young couple is always staying active and healthy.
6. Kevin Trapp & Isabel Goulart
The ultimate fitness couple, Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Kevin Trap and fiance, ex-Victoria’s Secret Model, Isabel Goulart are incredible athletes in both their fields. Trap is constantly interviewed on his top fitness tips for his chiseled abs and large muscles. Search for his fitness tips and you’ll quickly find his impressive at home, in the gym and outdoor workouts splashed across Youtube and Facebook. Goulard, on the other hand, is in a league of her own – her workouts are a mix between cardio, resistance and flexibility, putting over 10 hours a week into her fitness. Not to mention a diet so strict, you wonder how she’s been able to do it for so many years, walking the Victoria’s Secret stage 12 times (2005-2016).
