Former England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff is proving to be one fitness freak. So much so that the ex-cricketer prefers to wear Fitbit while having sex. This unusual revelation was made by his gorgeous wife, Rachael while speaking to Channel 4. Flintoff himself admitted how he has to monitor every type of exercise to help him burn 4,000 calories a day – and romping is very much included. Freddie claimed the device made him ‘try a bit harder’ while sharing intimate moments with his partner. While he may be truly game for burning calories, Rachael is not amused by her husband’s weird habit.
According to The Mirror report, Rachael Flintoff was quoted Speaking to Channel 4 show ‘Married To A Celebrity: The Survival Guide’. The mother of three said, “This is the weirdest and most wrong out of everything you do,” narrating about her husband’s habit of keeping Fitbit on while having sex. The cricketer received the fitness device as a Christmas gift and has been completely obsessed with burning calories.
Rachael said, “Robbie Savage bought him a Fitbit for Christmas but there’s certain intimate moments in the bedroom, you should take your Fitbit off.” She continued: “Things are happening and then your husband’s wrist is flashing telling him his heartbeat and how hard he’s working. It’s really wrong. It’s putting me off though. It’s like you’re seeing it as another training session rather than anything else. It’s really not nice.”
But Flintoff spoke about his dedication towards burning calories and wearing Fitbit to achieve the target of lessening 4000 calories a day. He explained: “I just want to get my steps in! When I get excited my legs start going, the steps go on.” Freddie continued, “But if I try a bit harder, I can get to 4,000 calories. That’s what I’ve set as my goal for the day. So if I’m at 3,800 and it’s oh . . . I’ve never thought about it like that.” Andrew Flintoff and Rachael Wools married in 2005 and have been together for 12 years. They have three children – a daughter named Holly and two sons named Corey and Rocky.
