At Visual Therapy, we’re all about Mind, Body, and Soul. As we work with clients to line up their optimal wardrobes and help them to be the best version of themselves, we’re huge believers that it’s not the dress, but what’s in the dress that matters. And even though clothes can help you feel like a movie star, there’s something that needs to be taken care of first on a deeper level. Welcome to “Wellness Wednesday”: our weekly feature to bring you tips for a healthy, whole and fulfilled life.
While you most likely know Ellie Goulding as singer du jour and dancefloor hit-maker (“Burn” is one of our favorite gym songs), she’s firmly making her way into the fitness scene. A fitness fanatic who’s done five half marathons, drinks green juice, and even guest-taught a recently documented Barry’s Bootcamp class, she’s been chosen for the new Nike campaign.
Goulding sports crop tops and printed leggings in the campaign, posing in various stretches. But the famous Brit hasn’t always been into fitness.

‘Sport hasn’t always been a part of my life. I did enjoy sports but I didn’t take it seriously. I think I was about 18 when I decided to start running. I literally went out running one day and I never looked back. From then on I was running every day and I still am now. I have to be fit to do all the things I want to do on stage.’
What kind of exercise helps her stay in great shape?
‘Having a yin and yang with exercise is the important thing for me. I love to do high-intensity training, but I also love to take it easy. I say take it easy, but doing yoga is not easy. Doing something different every day keeps things fresh.’
Ellie also designed a workout for Nike + Training Club, which will be available through the Nike + Training Club app on March 2nd. The 15-minute workout promises to incorporate some of Ellie’s favorite training exercises.
