Pete told Us Weekly that the training also helped with Adele's mindest, noting: 'When we had low days, I would alter the workout so that it would ease her into training, get her mind off of what was bugging her and then, before you knew it, we were having a good session and working hard. 

'I don't get starstruck and just trained her as if she was not famous. I loved her sense of humor and we'd laugh a lot of the time.'

Pete added that Adele always wanted to outdo herself, noting it was her competitive side that spurred her on, even though she 'wasn't a fan of training in the beginning.'

A source told The Sunday Mirror that Harley suggested Adele follow a fitness regime which included 35-minute training sessions five times a week.

They said: 'Adele is feeling incredible at the moment and her weight loss is due to a lot of things but she is also been getting tips from Harley.
