Ellie takes her workouts pretty seriously, and told Women's Health UK last year that she's a fan of Barry's Bootcamp, running on a track, and that oftentimes, she sweats it out at her local gym, just like everybody else.
"I’m more of a burst girl than sustained,” she said of her running style. “I like it when the treadmill’s on dynamic and I do sprints. I also prefer using my own body as weight, so press-ups, mountain climbers, and burpees.”
But even though working out helps her stay in shape for performing, Ellie revealed that not everyone was impressed by her hardcore workouts at the beginning of her career. “A lot of music critics associate my passion for fitness with being boring or the opposite of rock ’n’ roll, which I resented because my job is based on me being a bit crazy. I wouldn’t have written any of my songs without losing it a little," she said.
But times have changed.
"And all those people that said those things and made fun of me... everyone’s doing it," Ellie added. "Everyone’s eating more veggies and meditating and doing yoga now."
