Beyoncé sang while running on a treadmill as part of an Olympics-style workout with Destiny’s Child.
Her former bandmate Michelle Williams, 43, said the grueling stage and exercise were encouraged by Beyoncé’s father Matthew Knowles, 70, who used to manage R and B.
Michelle told Australia’s KIIS FM: “It was a learning curve for all the girls in Destiny’s Child.
“He (Matthew) was a great coach. I would compare him to a coach who wanted to make sure his team won the championship.”
Destiny’s Child, which also featured Kelly Rowland, was formed in Houston, Texas and debuted in 1997 with the single “No No No” before disbanding in 2006 after amassing 60 million in worldwide sales recorded.
They reformed for several lifetime performances, including the Super Bowl in 2013.

Former Spice Girls member Mel B was left speechless after she managed to guess the singer’s identity and exclaimed: “I knew I knew that voice. I knew it. I knew it. You are wonderful.”
Michelle replied, “From one women’s group to another women’s group, which is the plan that paved the way.
“When we were in London, all those times in the early 2000s, we met everyone but the Spice Girls!”
Michelle also said her rendition of A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera’s “Say Something” was related to her breakup with fiance Chad Johnson last year.
She said: “It’s no secret, I was engaged and it didn’t work out. I just remember those words. That kind of sums up what I wanted to say.
“Until you really feel it out loud, it was almost like therapy. And so it just came out that way. That’s what music can do to you if you just let it go.”
