Anna Victoria Apologized to Her Followers for Making Her Fit Body App Workouts So Hard

Anna Victoria built an Instagram empire thanks in part to her killer Fit Body Guide (FBG) workouts. These workout plans may be easy to follow, but they definitely aren't easy to do—and both are reasons why they've been so effective for the thousands of women who've shared their transformations on Instagram.

What might surprise you, though, is that even Victoria struggles to get through the circuits she designed for the FBG. In a super-relatable Instagram Story rant, the trainer apologized to her followers for making her workouts so damn difficult—in a good way, of course.

In two years, Stacey went from CrossFit obsessed (left) to entering into the world of powerlifting and counting macros (right). She lost 15 pounds and about 5 percent body fat, but not overnight. "Understanding that this whole fitness thing is a lifelong journey really helps me understand that there's ups, downs, weekends of eating it all, weeks of consistency, fat days, 'damn who dat' when you look in the mirror days, and overall a lot of learning and self-encouragement, forgiveness and love," she wrote.

This Is the Legging Trend You'll Be Seeing Everywhere in 2019

The biggest legging trend for 2019 will look pretty familiar to anyone who lived in Adidas track pants back in the '90s.

Workout tights that take a cue from the brand's iconic tri-color side stripe are everywhere right now. And while the original is still cool, we're also seeing lots of leggings that have a refreshed take on the classic style—think side stripes on modern fabrics, over eye-catching prints, and paired with other trendy features like mesh panels or colorblocking. We're guessing some of the stripe-y bottoms below will soon be popping up at your gym or next SoulCycle class; add them to your cart now before they're gone.
