Adele's former personal trainer responds to weight loss critics

Adele recently posted a rare photograph on herself on Instagram to celebrate on 32nd birthday. The celebratory Instagram post encouraged some people to comment on Adele’s weight loss, a point that her former personal trainer, Pete Geracimo, addressed in a recent Instagram post. Geracimo spoke as “Adele’s former London-based personal trainer” in a post he felt compelled to write after he described the negativity around her weight-loss. “It’s disheartening to read negative commentary and fat-phobic accusations questioning the genuineness of her amazing weight loss.” He began. “In my personal experience of working with her through many highs and lows, she always marched to the beat of her own drum on her own terms. “When 25 dropped and the tour announced, we had to get ready for a 13 month gruelling schedule.” For her, it wasn’t just about exercise, but making healthier food choices, which resulted in what Geracimo described as “considerable” weight loss. I could not be prouder or happier for her!” Celebrities come under a lot of pressure to lose weight for their job, but Geracimo assures his followers that this has nothing to do with album sales or publicity. Geracimo finishes by sharing his hope for people criticising Adele’s weight-loss journey. “My hope is that people appreciate the hard work that Adele has done to improve herself for the benefit to her and her family only.
