Life goes on… . As silly as it might seem, one of the most difficult parts of my “all in” journey is getting the courage to attend events that make me feel really uncomfortable with my recent weight gain. Events that make me realize that any dress I own no longer fits, and wearing my usual baggy T-shirt with leggings isn’t going to cut it. Having to go to the store and try on clothes that are a size I’ve never worn, reflected back at me in the harsh dressing room lighting, makes me want to avoid any and all events I’ve previously committed to and hide ? But as much as I want to stay home, I CAN’T. I can’t miss out on the moments that are important to me, and my loved ones, that quite frankly, don’t care how I look…they just want me to be there. . I attended a beautiful wedding yesterday and the important thing was that I was there…because I can guarantee not a single person in that room gave af that I’ve gained weight and it’s silly for me to think that they would. Life goes on…and it’s extremely humbling to remind myself to stop caring so much about ME…not everything is about ME. Lesson learned ? #allin . ?Dress & Shoes: Nordstrom

After she matriculated from high school, she attended the University of South Florida where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree, and was later awarded her PhD. Stephanie finished college mostly because she wanted to dedicate her life to researching cancer, and maybe finding a cure or a better treatment option for it, however, her interests changed throughout the years.

Career of a fitness model

Stephanie is a medical scientist specialized in researching ovarian cancer. As she was working at the lab, she decided to use the gym to relieve the stress that was pilling up each day – the occasional workout turned to a passion and Stephanie soon realized she couldn’t stop exercising as she came to love it.

While she firstly used her Instagram account to upload her pictures from the lab, she was now uploading pictures from the gym, including the progression of her muscles, and some of her exercises. Gathering quite a fanbase motivated Stephanie to enter a competition, and she left the 2014 NPC Sunset Classic as a winner – that was enough of an achievement for her as she then decided to focus on her workout, but not compete anymore.

Her newfound fame led her to being invited for numerous photoshoots and she got to sign a contract with one of the most recognizable modelling agencies in the US. She has since posed for numerous fitness magazines, and has been appearing in commercials for bikini brands and companies.

Most popular fitness models in the world

Fitness is currently a very important topic in the world, and people are turning to Instagram to find fitness models so that they could learn from their workout plans and their diets. “Influence marketing hub” website has shared their list of 10 most popular fitness models on Instagram and surprised or not, Alyssa is not among them – we will mention four of the most popular fitness models:

  • Fourth place is held by Ana Cheri who has amassed nearly 12.4 million followers on her account – she is currently 31 years old, and she launched her Instagram account out of nowhere when her figure was already well built;
  • Jen Selter is in third place, and has managed to amass more than 12.8 million followers on her Instagram account. She is currently 24 years old, and she began working out when she was 15 – she was working in a fitness gym and the very first picture of her in a bikini she shared online made her popular overnight;
  • In second place is Michelle Lewin, who started off as a catwalk model, but then switched to bikini modelling. She started going to the gym to work on her body, and quickly changed her weight from 95lb to 120lb of pure muscle;
  • Top place is held by Sommer Ray, who is currently followed by more than 21.3 million people on her Instagram account – although she is somewhat new to Instagram as she joined the platform in September 2016, it hasn’t stopped her from becoming the most popular fitness model.


Even though these are the current most popular four fitness models, the industry is moving very quickly and their positions could soon be overthrown by some new names, including Stephanie.

Stephanie’s workout plan and diet

After years of exercising, Stephanie chose heavy lifts and isolation exercises as her main priority, as these appear to suit her body the most. Her training sessions begin with heavy compound movements, she then moves to heavy lifting, and ends the session with isolation movements. While cardio is not her main goal, does it once or twice per week if she feels it’s necessary.

While her diet is not that strict, Stephanie still believes there are rules to be followed – she will never stop herself from eating the food she wants, but will not overdo it.
