Working out with Ellie Goulding

This week I attended the exclusive launch of Ellie Goulding’s brand new Nike+ Training Club app at London’s Tobacco Dock. The evening commenced with Ellie Goulding serenading us to five of her hot singles including her recent UK chart topper, Love Me Like You Do. In between tracks she spoke to us of her shyness, her love for Bjork and confessed that she always forgets the words to her own songs (as she revealed her book of lyrics). She didn’t tell us however, that she was going to do a costume change from pop star glam to Lycra gym wear (to be fair she still looked glam) to lead us in a 40 minute full body workout. We soon found out.
Yes you heard me, just when I was getting comfortable she whipped us into shape by leading a sweat-inducing workout which really did leave me feeling starry eyed. It was sort of surreal working out with a pop star, especially as she’d just sang to us. I mean talk about a sweaty serenade. I can vouch for the fact that Ellie Goulding is one pop princess who isn’t afraid of a few burpees but the fact that I was working out with a bunch of strong, focused women right ahead of International Women’s Day made those squat jumps extra special. Here are us ladies showing our strength in side planks.
From one pop star to the next I will be interviewing former X Factor starlet, Brit Award-nominated Ella Henderson for ITV2’s The Hot Desk tomorrow so be sure to check back here next week for all the gossip and as always be sure to check out my YouTube channel for the latest in fitness, fashion, short workouts and diet tips.
Tune into London’s Hoxton Radio today, which you can listen to live online from 2-4pm every single Monday. Today I’ll be playing pop, including the UK top 10 chart countdown, I’ll be sharing my fit tip of the day and revealing who I’ve been stalking on Instagram. Naturally. Until next time, tarah!
