Adele’s former personal trainer in London, Pete Geracimo, took to Instagram to stick up for Adele after the online trolls came for her.
“As Adele’s former London-based personal trainer, it’s disheartening to read the negative commentary and fat-phobic accusations questioning the genuineness of her amazing weight loss,” he started out.
“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 grueling 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.”
