British singing superstar Adele was recently given the Global Success Award at the 2017 Brits.

The 28-year-old has absolutely smashed the charts since the release of her third album 25, with the first single 'Hello' becoming the first song in the US to sell more than one million digital copies within its first week.

But the London born legend has also performed a stunning body transformation since her first Grammy win in 2009 for Best New Artist.

In 2012, fashion designer Karl Largerfeld delivered a cruel blow to Adele, saying: "The thing at the moment is Adele. She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice."

She hit back a day later, telling People magazine: "I've never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines. I represent the majority of women and I'm very proud of that."

Shortly before the singer kicked off her world tour in 2015, she told Rolling Stone, she wanted "to get in shape for myself, but not to be a size zero or anything like that."

"I'm not, like, skipping to the fucking gym. I don't enjoy it. I do like doing weights. I don't like looking in the mirror. Blood vessels burst on my face really easily, so I'm so conscious when I'm lifting weights not to let them burst in my face."

Her personal trainer is Pete Geracimo, who's been in the industry for more than 20 years.

He told TheLADbible: "In that time I have had the opportunity and honour of training royalty, celebrities, the weekend warriors and homemakers. It has been a personal mission to be able to positively change people's lives for the better by helping them become the best possible versions of themselves."

Pete tells us it's no easy feat to shred the weight and be healthy, but he does have some handy tips:

"I tell my clients that they need to schedule in their training as if they were scheduling a meeting. Once it's in the diary, it cannot be changed or moved. It's an hour devoted to you."

In typical Adele style - she posted a photo of her working out to show she was committed to the regime.


Pete has a simple mantra for those looking to trim down, "Look after your body, mind and spirit and in turn they will look after you. Train hard, eat cleanly, recover fully, enjoy the experience, and repeat."

He posted a message on Instagram, congratulating Adele on winning five awards at the 2017 Grammys.


Pete's final message is: "I tell my clients it is imperative to have a goal that is deeply personal yet realistic for them to strive for. The goal needs to be powerful enough to get you out the door to go to the gym or for that run when it is pouring with rain outside."

He's got some handy tips and tricks about diet and exercises on his Twitter and Facebook pages.
