It’s very easy to become overwhelmed by photos of fitness bloggers and personal trainers on social media.

And the pressure that comes with these social media snaps can be incredibly damaging for women who feel like they should look the same.

But after seeing personal trainer Jen Widerstrom’s recent post on Instagram, we feel like we can cut ourselves a little slack.

Jen, who is a coach on The Biggest Loser, recently posted this side-by-side snap of two photos of herself taken just two minutes apart.


On the right is the kind of mirror selfie you’d expect to see from a fitness influencer like Jen. On the left is a radically different selfie taken from below.

Jen’s candid snap is a much-needed reminder that not everyone can look their best all the time, from every angle – not even personal trainers.  So cut yourself some slack.
