12 Times Ellie Goulding Gave Us Inspiration To Get Off Our Butts And Go To The Gym

Her Insta is pure gymspo.

We all know that getting to the gym is the hardest part. Once you're there, knocking out a workout can be fun and rewarding. But sometimes, just putting on socks and walking out the door takes the most motivation.

Is it not enough to remember that post-workout high? Sometimes you have to get inspired by others. That's why Ellie Goulding's Instagram account is the ultimate gym-spiration. In between high-energy shows, fancy events and making electronic pop music fit for "50 Shades of Grey" and Calvin Harris, Ellie uses her time to exercise. So basically, lesson number one, if Ellie has time, you have time.

  1. Ellie's workouts pay off onstage, where she's able to bounce around and still hold a note.
  2. So how does she do it? Let's start with an insane boxing routine.
  3. Girl is intense.
  4. And then she hits the jungle-gym bars. With a smile. Remember, people, this is fun.
  5. Just look at the way she captions her photos:

    "Treadmill dynamic mode is my fav slash the worst," she wrote. Her "fav"?! This looks like torture! But we all know, you got to work to feel results. And Ellie loves it. #inspired

  6. This looks... difficult, but she kills it and gives us the inspiration to do the same.
  7. And hell, maybe you don't need to go to the gym. The world is your gym! Ellie even goes for runs when it's freezing out.
  8. She makes running up hills look beautiful and picturesque.
  9. Also, if you're having a hard time getting to the gym, Ellie is a good reminder that you can change up your workout and have fun.
  10. Get that post-workout smoothie. Yum.
  11. I wonder if she needs a running partner, because I'm stoked now.
  12. What do you say, Ellie? Hit the gym with me?
