English singer and songwriter Ellie Goulding, who released her fourth studio album ‘Brightest Blue’ in July, took to Instagram and broke taboos regarding that there aren’t many muscular women in popular culture, with her well-built body.

The 33-year-old Goulding posted a gym selfie on Instagram and showed up one more time that muscular women also are “beautiful” and “healthy” as much as the other women. Goulding wrote as a caption by explaining what being fit and strong mean to her:

Nothing I do in the gym is for vanity. To me, it isn’t intimidating or scary to be strong (in fact anyone who has met me knows I am the most pathetically shy and self-deprecating person) When posting gym photos, I only ever wanted to show that with all the things I’ve overcome, keeping fit and strong has been my ultimate escape. I have no extraordinary athletic ability and I was crap at sports as a kid (I was so severely asthmatic I could barely even laugh without a coughing fit).”

Then the ‘Love Me Like You Do’ singer mentioned that she was pushing herself to keep doing gym, and admitted that it was tough sometimes:

“As hard as it is to stay motivated, especially right now, I still recommend it passionately for any mental health issues you are facing… even a small walk or jog. P.S. – I didn’t do any exercise today because I didn’t want to! Might not tomorrow either.

Goulding concluded her message by addressing all the “strong women:”

“Love to all the strong women out there and to those just getting started- I am with you 💙”

*There aren’t many muscular women in popular culture* 🤷🏼‍♀️ Nothing I do in the gym is for vanity. To me it isn’t intimidating or scary to be strong (in fact anyone who has met me knows I am the most pathetically shy and self deprecating person) When posting gym photos, I only ever wanted to show that with all the things I’ve overcome, keeping fit and strong has been my ultimate escape. I have no extraordinary athletic ability and I was crap at sports as a kid (I was so severely asthmatic I could barely even laugh without a coughing fit) but I’ve pushed myself and used all the willpower I can muster to keep at it. As hard as it is to stay motivated, especially right now, I still recommend it passionately for any mental health issues you are facing… even a small walk or jog. Ps – I didn’t do any exercise today because I didn’t want to! Might not tomorrow either. Love to all the strong women out there and to those just getting started- I am with you 💙
