Late last year we told all you folks that Anna Victoria was one personal trainer who you were going to want to work out with. And the reason is pretty obvious. But the fitness blogger has recently gone viral after she shared side-by-side photos of her “Instagram booty” versus her “real life booty.”
The 29-year-old, who is very popular on Instagram with 1.3 million followers, recently took it to the photo platform to share quite the photos. In it she pretty much reveals how some gals achieve the “Instagram booty” that brings in tons of followers. Have a look at the photo below thanks to Victoria’s Instagram:
Those angles, I tell ya… The one thing I was most insecure about growing up was my booty. I’ve always been smaller on bottom and I would try to wear long shirts to cover it. One thing I’ve loved about fitness is the ability to sculpt your body in various ways BUT there’s only so much muscle you can build on your butt AND you need to flex it to really show it off . A lot of the booty pics you see on Instagram are flexed, pushed out, back arched so much it actually hurts…plus high waisted pants that accentuate a small waist and lift the booty too…there are so many ways to make it look 10x bigger on insta than in real life, and I do it too!! I love posing and admiring the “Instagram booty” but that’s not my real booty. And I’m okay with that. . Over time, I’ve gotten several comments about my lack of a butt, even recently when I actually am so proud of my hard work. It may not look like what someone else would consider an ideal booty, but it’s mine!! Not theirs. And I’ve had to work hard to love it and to shape it and to love it no matter the shape or size. People are always going to have opinions on your body. Do they hurt sometimes? Yes. But a wise woman once said, “You could be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world and there will still be someone who hates peaches”. And in this case, I LITERALLY mean peaches #bodylove #realstagram #angles (pants are Lorna Jane! :)) . Try @bodyloveapp FREE for 7-days! www.annavictoria.com/bodyloveapp

Well, those “poses” have helped Victoria reel in the followers and the attention as the California-based blogger has appeared in various fitness magazines including Women’s Health. And Victoria markets a lot of products on her Instagram, which also helps brings in the cash.
But hey, is Victoria the only gal who “fakes” her butt? No. Will she be the last? No. Will we stop talking about these gals? Again, no. So with that groundbreaking statement, it’s only right with check out more of Victoria below:
