Adele’s Body Transformation: Personal Trainer Shared 3 Simple Steps To Weight Loss
Remember back on her 32nd birthday when Adele broke the internet when she shared a first photo of herself in 2020?
Having lost a reported 98 pounds over the past few years, the singer received plenty of attention for her look, with countless celebrity friends commenting their approval including Rita Ora and Chrissy Teigen.
While the photo prompted online debate both for and against the conversation around her weight loss, one person who has defended Adele’s slimming down is her former personal trainer Pete Geracimo. The London-based fit trainer worked with Adele for four years as she began her fitness journey, until she moved to Los Angeles back in 2016. And according to Pete, here are 3 vital steps to remember if you are in the journey of weight loss.
My main advice is to be fully committed to the whole process and above all else to be patient
Pete Geracimo, 48, says the most important thing to remember on any fitness journey is not to rush the process. “My main piece of advice to anyone wanting to make healthy changes to themselves is to be fully committed to the whole process and above all else to be patient,”

Am so proud of this special lady. She has taken charge of her life and made the necessary changes to focus on her and her life. LA is definitely agreeing with you girl!!

He then added, “All that is required is belief in yourself that you can do it, consistency in your actions, and discipline in your routine’’.
Next, Pete is a firm believer that working out and getting healthier should be enjoyable. There has to be an element of fun in exercise, which is why his training sessions are “full of laughs” as well as being serious workouts. “I believe exercise selection must adapt to suit the person and not the other way around. There is no sense in forcing someone to do something if there is no joy in it — that’s torture.”

Wednesday We Werk! Here is your Wednesday Push Session that we did on IG Live. All you need to do this workout is: 1. open space to move 2. a chair 3. a very heavy book(s) If you a lucky enough to have resistance tube, super-band or dumbbells, you will be able to use them instead of the book(s). This workout is mostly bodyweight orientated except for one exercise in the last circuit. Circuits: 3 Reps: 12-10-8-6 Ladder Rest: 20-10-5 seconds b/w rds A1: Persian Press Up x 12-10-8-6 A2: Side High Plank Dips x 12-10-8-6 A3: Dips (feet Elevated) x 12-10-8-6 B1: Tiger Press Up x 12-10-8-6 B2: In-Out Table x 12-10-8-6 B3: Skull Crushers x 12-10-8-6 C1: Pike Press Up x 12-10-8-6 C2: Blast Offs x 12-10-8-6 C3: O/H Tri Ext x 12-10-8-6 home #coronavirus #workout #training #mobility #sweat #homeworkout #weightloss #results #energy #lean #strong #fitness #fit #personaltrainer #pt #warmup #bodytransformation #motivation #chest #momentum #health #exercise #triceps #bodyweight #core #abs #flex #push
Last but not least, according to Pete you should always find a consistent time, (let’s say 2 or 3 times a week) to exercise regularly. He also pressed that you should vary your workout routine not stick to one move only. “Training sessions always varied from bodyweight and resistance-band work to weight training and boxing,” he said. “I would also throw in cardio challenges just to keep her (Adele) on her toes.”
A few days after Adele posted the birthday photo of herself and the storm around her weight loss erupted, Pete wrote a long message on Instagram in defense of his former client, saying it was “disheartening” to read so much negativity. He told The Insider he “felt compelled” to remind people that “no one should be criticized for achieving their goals.” Thank Pete! Now let me grab my yoga mat.
