It Was Never About Weight Loss
The singer revealed to American Vogue that her drive to exercise was more about her mental health than physical. "It became my time," she said about exercise. "I realized that when I was working out, I didn't have any anxiety. It was never about losing weight. I thought, If I can make my body physically strong, and I can feel that and see that, then maybe one day I can make my emotions and my mind physically strong."
She Does Weightlifting and Circuit Training
Adele also revealed that she trains at Heart & Hustle, a no-frills private gym in West Hollywood. Her exercise sessions consist of intensive weightlifting and circuit training sessions. She also spends time on the elliptical machine while at the gym.
She Works Out Three Times a Day
Adele works out multiple times a day. "I work out two or three times a day," she revealed to British Vogue. "So I do my weights in the morning, then I normally hike or I box in the afternoon, and then I go and do my cardio at night. I was basically unemployed when I was doing it. And I do it with trainers.It's not doable for a lot of people."
Exercise Is Her Addiction
Adele admits that she is obsessed with exercise, telling British Vogue "I needed to get addicted to something to get my mind right. It could have been knitting, but it wasn't.
She Did It For Herself
Adele wants to make it clear that she didn't lose 100 pounds for anyone but herself. "People are shocked because I didn't share my 'journey'. They're used to people documenting everything on Instagram, and most people in my position would get a big deal with a diet brand. I couldn't give a flying f**k. I did it for myself and not anyone else. So why would I ever share it? I don't find it fascinating. It's my body," she told British Vogue.
"You Don't Need to Be Overweight to Be Body Positive"
Adele explains that no matter her size or what people say about her, she has mad self-love. "People have been talking about my body for 12 years. They used to talk about it before I lost weight. But yeah, whatever, I don't care," she said. "You don't need to be overweight to be body positive, you can be any shape or size."
She Doesn't Diet
"You know a hundred per cent of the stories written about me have been absolutely fake. The people that came out being like, 'I trained her,' I've never met in my life. It's disgusting. I cannot get over it. Some Pilates lady I've never met in my life!" she told British Vogue. "And I haven't done any diet," she adds, confirming that she "ain't done" the Sirtfood diet, despite it being widely reported. "No intermittent fasting. Nothing. If anything I eat more than I used to because I work out so hard. And also, that whole thing of like, 'Gets Revenge Body'… Oh my god. Suck my dick!"
