Louie Banks/InterscopeWhen she’s not singing hit songs, Ellie Goulding is all about staying fit. So it’s no surprise her latest gig is with Nike.
The fitness-obsessed Brit is the face of the brand’s latest workout collection, which includes printed leggings and colorful sports bras. “I feel quite proud to be an ambassador for women who realize that being fit is better than being skinny,” the 28-year-old says on Nike’s website.
Ellie’s an avid runner who has run five half-marathons so far. She also counts everything Bikram yoga to boxing as ways she likes to stay healthy. As part of her collaboration with Nike, she’s also spearheading a new workout for the Nike + Training Club app.
Her high-energy 15-minute “Get Lean” workout will debut on the app on March 2. It incorporates all of her favorite training moves, mixing both high and low intensity movement for a full body workout. “I think having a yin and yang with exercise is the important thing for me,” Ellie said. “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, exciting and interesting.”
The “Burn” singer is currently working on her new album and training for her next half-marathon.
