Gym babe shows how she looks ‘99% of time’ by posting candid bikin! snap

A personal trainer urged women to stop comparing themselves to those they see online. Molly Ava highlighted how many people avoid posting the photos they don’t deem flattering. So to show that influencers aren’t as “perfect” as they seem, she shared two very different pictures of herself. In an image captioned “my 1%”, the gym bunny struck a pose by the pool. But in the second, marked with the words “my 99%”, she relaxed her body and smiled towards the camera. The 23-year-old fitness coach, from Bournemouth, looks gorgeous in both snaps – but the latter is much more natural.

Molly captioned the upload: “Stop beating yourself up for not having the ‘bikini body’ you see other have online. “Why? Because the likelihood is, they don’t have it either. “A quick change of pose and angle and my body can look so drastically different but they are BOTH me, BOTH beautiful and BOTH worthy of my love and acceptance. “I spent my teenage years saving pictures of women with defined cores to my phone and doing crazy workouts that I thought would get me the body on the left without realising it could also still be the body on the right, because I only ever saw the 1%, so let this be your reminder… “That the highlight you see, the 1% is simply that, a tiny snapshot, of a normal, moving, beautiful, body. Keep on loving yourself.”

Molly’s post garnered more than 10,000 likes – and many praised her body positive message. One responder wrote: “Thank you. it’s so easy to get caught up feeling bad and comparing yourself to the models we see. But most of what we see is not what they look like majority of the time.” Another said: “You have no idea how important your posts are to me. Thank you so much for helping me to heal and love myself.” And a third added: “You are seriously an inspiration lady!”
