Adele's Gym Struggle Is Real


Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

If there's one thing Adele is known for, it's her super laidback personality. She was even prone to drunk tweeting prior to having her account taken over by her people and still wears high street jeans. Adele is all of us (minus all those Grammy trophies, of course).

One universal pain is shared by all normal people: going to the gym. Unlike her über fit celebrity counteracts such as the person who is strong but looks better when strong when naked Khloé Kardashian, The Rock, and uh, Terry Crews, Adele seems a lot less enthused about working out. The 27-year-old singer shared an appropriately black and white picture to Instagram of her working out with a rather tortured expression. We feel you, girl.

She captioned the post "getting ready..." so all of those who lucked into tickets to her "25" world tour better appreciate all the hard work and effort she put in at this hard time.
