23. Ellie Goulding: Reaching the soul
By BBC Radio 4
The UK’s favourite fitness coach is back with series two of his podcast. This summer, Joe will be speaking to inspirational friends and some of his favourite people to ask them what they do to keep themselves feeling mentally and physically strong in the face of life’s little challenges. It might be going for a new personal best on the running machine or cosying up with a good book; every guest will share the one thing that works for them in the hope it might inspire you to try something new.
In this episode, Ellie Goulding shares what it's like to headline one of the world's biggest music festivals, and how she ensures the audience always get her best performance, even when she gets up on the wrong side of bed and is not in the mood to perform at all.
Joe and Ellie catch up on life since they last saw each other - at her wedding two years ago, and they reminisce about how they first met.
She explains why it was important that all the packaging for her latest album Brightest Blue, is as sustainable as possible and how she’s trying to cut out single use plastic. During lockdown, Ellie found herself turning to classical music to keep her nervous system calm, and she also reveals why she wrote a fitness and wellness book.
This is sunshine in a podcast. Joe Wicks is here for you, and he won’t stop until you’re fit and happy.
