Personal Life and Online Content
Thoma and Gustin dated each other for a short period of time before getting engaged. The two met at a party and hit it off there, leading to their relationship. He found it difficult to find the right time to propose so he did so at such a random moment that she was caught off guard, nearly mistaking her proposal for a joke. She eventually accepted the proposal and the two married in 2017. They did two marriage ceremonies, with one being a more traditional one held at Thoma’s home country.
Due to his association with a popular television star, she’s gained a lot of followers online, with her biggest accounts being on Instagram and YouTube. She is attractive which is why she gets a lot of followers and she also posts a lot of practical physical therapy advice. Her posts and videos often consist of proper posture, exercises, and stretching to help the body. Her YouTube channel started in 2019 and updated on a regular basis, is called Dare to Be Active with LA Thoma Gustin, and features most of her videos posted on Instagram. These tackle good posture and beginner exercises.
This is a pretty shitty review of a self-made woman. “She is attractive which is why she gets a lot of followers”?! And so many more examples of subtle misogyny and remarks about male hegemony and stereotypes of women. Completely unacceptable.
Calm down, Karen.
