Fashion Blogger Shows Why Before And After Fitness Selfies Are Garbage

We are always seeing these pictures come up on our Instagram or Facebook feed. It’s of someone going to the gym and then after. And come on, do you really expect us to think you transformed in those two hours? No it’s a doctored up picture like this woman describes.

Sophie Kay, a personal trainer and fitness blogger and this to say about these dumb selfies:

All I did in the three minutes between the two photos was to turn off the overhead light, put on underwear that fit better, twist my body slightly to the side to show off my best angle, flex and, of course, add a filter. So don’t pay much attention to those ‘before and after’ shots!”


She writes:

“I love to eat anything and everything. Pizza is probably my favourite food and although I don’t really have a sweet tooth I can eat sweet ‘n’ salt popcorn or ice cream for days.”
