While Elle has always boasted a trim physique, she recently debuted an even slimmer frame after adopting a vegetarian diet and rigorous workout routine.

At the time, Elle had already been doing Pilates for several years, but found it difficult to exercise regularly due to her busy schedule.

However, this changed during Sydney’s 2020 lockdowns when she began exercising six days a week.

‘I found a place that would let me hire a treadmill, and I had it delivered on Friday of week four of ISO [isolation],’ she told Body + Soul in October 2020.

The Bondi-based blonde began exercising twice a day, spending one hour running on the treadmill, as well as attending a Pilates class via Zoom.

‘My body has completely changed… I am longer, leaner and in the best shape of my life,’ she proudly told the publication.

I’ve cried on the treadmill more than I’d like to admit, and I’ve cried during Pilates when I’ve tried so hard but still couldn’t get that squat right. But with every time I’ve cried, I’ve got up and tried again.’

Elle also overhauled her diet by deleting takeaway food apps and cooking at home.
