The singer has become increasingly health-conscious over recent months and a source close to the star praised her disciplined approach to her own wellbeing.
An insider told E! News: ‘She goes to different gyms. She goes early in the morning and meets with her trainer.
‘She gets her workout in first thing. She works out for about an hour and leaves drenched in sweat and looking like she worked very hard.’
Adele reportedly attends a couple of private fitness classes every week.
The source added: ‘She’s also staying active going on walks and getting in a lot of steps. She is in a groove.’

On Tuesday, Adele’s friend Lauren Paul, 33, married to Breaking Bad actor, Aaron, 40, shared a throwback picture of them partying in Vegas with Nicole Richie.
She wrote: ‘Happy birthday angel babe @adele. You came into my life a few months before I had Story [her son], and you quickly became one of the most important figures in my journey as a new mother.
‘You have taught me so much. You glow because your heart is full. I’m so proud of the human you are. Wish we were reliving this Vegas sleepover.’
She also shared a picture of herself and Adele on a road trip together.
Adele’s friend, author and editor, Jedidiah Jenkins, shared another picture of them in a car, with Adele wearing a headscarf and chic sunglasses.
In October, Adele had already visibly lost a great deal of weight as seen in pictures of her attending her friend Drake’s birthday party.

She posted an Instagram snap of herself at the fete and quipped in the caption: ‘I used to cry but now I sweat’.
In January she went on holiday to Anguilla with Harry Styles and James Corden, and met a 19-year-old fan called Lexi Larson who dished to People about their weight loss conversation.
‘She said she lost something like 100 pounds, and that it’s such a crazy positive experience. She seemed so happy, and she looked amazing. She seemed really confident,’ Lexi shared with the magazine.

The pop superstar’s big reveal came after she split from her husband Simon Konecki last April and filed for divorce in September.
Adele and Simon share a seven-year-old son called Angelo and a People insider revealed her weight loss came partly from a desire to be healthier for her child.
‘She got to the point where she didn’t feel great. She knew she had to change something, because she wants to be the healthiest mom possible,’ said the source.

The insider added: ‘Her whole focus during the weight loss journey has really been all about how she can be healthier and how can she treat her body better. It was never about losing weight.’
A friend previously said the split had given her a new lease of life.
They told The Sun: ‘Adele has been out enjoying herself and she sees that as her priority at the moment, along with being a mum to Angelo.
‘I used to cry but now I sweat’: In October she had already visibly lost a great deal of weight as seen in pictures of her attending her friend Drake’s birthday party
‘She has been loving her new workout regime and it really works for her. It’s a bonus that she has shifted some weight.
‘Her mates are glad she’s letting loose and there’s nothing but good feelings towards her. She’s got a new lease of life.’
Adele and Simon first began dating in 2011 and welcomed their son the following year in 2012.
WHAT IS THE SIRTFOOD DIET?
The Sirtfood Diet is based on sirtuins (SIRTs), a group of seven proteins
It focuses on plant foods which help to suppress appetite and activate the body’s ‘skinny gene’
Followers of the diet go through two diet cycles that last for three weeks
Recommended Sirtfoods include: Kale, red wine, strawberries, onions, soy and dark chocolate (85% cocoa)
The diet has been criticised for failing to provide any long-term benefits
The pair then married four years later, wedding in secret, with Adele choosing to address their wedding for the first time during an acceptance speech at the Grammys in 2017.
Adele first confirmed her split from Simon in April, earlier this year, and filed for divorce in September, with her ex reportedly agreeing to joint custody of their son Angelo just days later.
At the time, a source told People that the former couple are ‘staying friendly’ for the sake of their son.
‘They’re raising Angelo with love, warmth and real respect for each other,’ the insider claimed. ‘Adele and Simon are eager to stay friendly because of their child.’
A month after filing for divorce, Adele was romantically linked to British rapper and Grime artist Skepta, but it was claimed their relationship was never ‘serious’.
In December, reports surfaced suggesting Adele has since ‘grown closer’ to US record producer Jonathan Hay, who she is thought to have met earlier this year in New York at Quad Recording Studios.
Adele became a body positivity icon for her larger figure when she first rose to global stardom, proudly declaring on 60 Minutes in 2012: ‘I don’t wanna be some skinny mini with my t**s out. I really don’t wanna do it.’
However she became noticeably slimmer in 2016 and that year a source told the Daily Mail she was relying on the ‘Sirtfood Diet.’

Last year she embarked on another astonishing transformation with The Sun reporting in June that she was doing reformer Pilates with Robbie Williams’s wife Ayda Field.
Her new figure is also reportedly partly due to the Sirtfood Diet, which Glen Matten and Aidan Goggins debuted in a book in 2016.
The diet reportedly allows Adele to indulge in red wine and coffee while stressing a regime of plant products like turmeric, kale, buckwheat and green tea.
These items are said to activate a person’s sirtuins, also known as ‘housekeeping genes,’ which suppress appetite by controlling bodily response to sugar and fat.
This January Adele’s former personal trainer ‘Brazilian body wizard’ Camila Goodis appeared on Lorraine and shed light on how the singing star took the pounds off.
The way they were: The pop superstar’s big reveal came after she split from her husband Simon Konecki last April and filed for divorce in September; they are pictured in 2013
‘She’s working out but I think 90% of it is diet,’ said Camila, a 31-year-old who is based out of Los Angeles.
‘It’s a good diet to shed the weight. The first week is intense, green juices and only 1,000 calories. She doesn’t look too thin – she looks amazing.’
Camila told The Sun she met Adele through Ayda, who has been married since 2010 to English musician Robbie Williams of Take That fame.
She theorized Adele ‘has probably cut out processed foods and is eating soy and other plant-based foods.’
The fitness trainer added: ‘She’s found a diet that works for her. She looks younger and, more importantly, she looks happy.’
Back in Februrary, a health expert on British daytime TV show, This Morning, suggested Adele’s alleged ‘1000-calorie-a-day’ diet isn’t sustainable in the long term.
Food writer, Dale Pinnock – aka the Medicinal Chef – warned the diet could have adverse side effects such as brain fog and irritability.

Dale explained: ‘If you’ve got a short-term goal that kind of approach could be very, very suitable – if you want to lose weight for a wedding or holiday.
‘But it isn’t sustainable. There will be a cut off because after a while your body will start to down regulate the things it will do.’
He reminded people at home that the recommended daily intake for a woman is between 1,800 and 2,000 calories.
‘[The body’s] top priority is survival, after a couple of weeks you won’t be as active, you’ll find that you get brain fog and become irritable, it kicks in quite quickly.
‘Slow and steady wins the race, definitely – find something that you can stick to.’
This Morning’s resident doctor Zoe Williams was in agreement, advising viewers to make small changes they will be able to stick to.
Wellbeing & Lifestyle Consultant Yvonne Wake at Karidis Clinic recently said: ‘Adele looks completely different because she has lost a lot of adipose tissue from her entire body.
‘We hold on to water and our bodies are highly inflamed when we are overweight.
‘This transformation will always show in our faces fairly quickly when we lose weight.

‘Her rapid weight loss will also show out as her looking so very different, but that’s just what happens when the body starts to look after itself better.
‘I think it suits Adele to have lost this weight, and it’s healthy for her heart if done in the right way’.
Last Thursday Adele’s makeup artist of 12 years Michael Ashton posted an Instagram snap of her and wrote: ”BTW…. EXCITING NEWS COMING SOON!!’
His cryptic caption sent fans into a tizz as they theorized that he was hinting at new music from Adele, whose most recent album 25 was released in 2015.
Earlier last month Adele was Live on Instagram with producers Babyface and Teddy Riley, and as their stream got repeatedly interrupted by glitches she cracked: Come on, it’s 2020 – we ain’t meant to get what we want!’
Although Adele’s next album is slated to drop this September her quip led some fans to worry that the release may be pushed until 2021.
