Adele has been hogging headlines for her impressive weigh loss for quite some time now. While many praised the singer, some social media users pointed fingers are the singer. While the singer did not react to the negative criticism, her former fitness trainer defended her and slammed trolls for making “fat-phobic accusations,” and stated that the singer worked very hard to lose weight and she did it for herself. “As Adele’s former London-based personal trainer, it’s disheartening to read negative commentary and fat-phobic accusations questioning the genuineness of her amazing weight loss,” her London-based personal trainer Pete Geracimo wrote on Instagram.

He said when the Rolling In The Deep singer started working out, it was never about getting skinny. “When Adele and I started our journey together, it was never about getting super skinny. It was about getting her healthy. Especially post pregnancy and post surgery. When 25 dropped and the tour announced, we had to get ready for a 13 month gruelling schedule. In that time, she warmed to training and made better food choices. As a result, she lost considerable weight and people took notice,” he wrote Alongside a photo of himself with the singer.

As Adele’s former London-based personal trainer, it’s disheartening to read negative commentary and fat-phobic accusations questioning the genuineness of her amazing weight loss. 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. She never undermined her God-given talent in any way. She let her incredible voice do the talking, or should I say singing! She never once pretended to be something that she wasn’t. What you saw was what you got. And we all LOVED it! When Adele and I started our journey together, it was never about getting super skinny. It was about getting her healthy. Especially post pregnancy and post surgery. When 25 dropped and the tour announced, we had to get ready for a 13 month gruelling schedule. In that time, she warmed to training and made better food choices. As a result, she lost considerable weight and people took notice. Her body transformation was splashed across every media outlet. The attention it generated was mind-blowing. Since she moved to LA, it’s been well documented that she underwent some tough personal changes. It’s only natural that with change comes a new sense of self and wanting to be your best possible version. She embraced better eating habits and committed to her fitness and “is sweating”! I could not be prouder or happier for her! This metamorphosis is not for album sales, publicity or to be a role model. She is doing it for herself and for Angelo. 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. She did not lose the weight to make others feel bad about themselves. This personal transformation has nothing to do with me or you. It’s about Adele and how she wants to live her life. She has not changed from the Adele we grew up with and have loved. There is just a little less of her to go around. #adele #fabulous #strong #songbird #transformation #powerful #voice #love #rumorhasit #pt

Anonymous : Did she document her journey? One day in gym and celebs can't stop posting about it. Losing weight is very tough, mentally, emotionally and psychologically, esp at adele's size. It takes at least 1-3 years if you do it naturally. I think the criticism is that no papz saw her going to gym, no documentation of her progress, and she never mentioned in her interviews that she has made lifestyle changes and fitness goals. So when you walk out UK size 8-10. I raises questions.
