A TIKTOKER who promotes body positivity has posted a video showing her followers her gorgeous figure.
The fitness influencer posted the video to call out the outdated use of the Body Mass Index (BMI) to determine someone’s health.
In the video, the TikToker happily dances and shows off her figure.
Dana (@dxmxfit) captioned the video with an important message: “PSA BMI is bulls*** and outdated #fittok #normalizenormalbodies #bodypositivity.”
She commented on the video and said: “Never did I think I would resort to dancing on this app but here I am.”
Dana’s followers praised her for her confidence and normalizing different body types.
One fan commented: “Never did I think I would see someone with the same body type as me.”
Another said, “you look amazing.”
Dana runs a 1:1 coaching business for clients who want to lose weight, build muscle, and promote a healthy lifestyle.
A number of health and fitness influencers have been calling out the use of BMI as an outdated way of measuring a person’s health, suggesting that it promotes unhealthy perceptions of normal bodies.
The fitness coach, whose account has over 72,000 likes, posts body-positive content videos.
In one video, she said: “[I tell] my weight loss clients that they shouldn’t base their progress on the number on the scale.”
There are so many other forms of progress like measurements, progress photos, how your clothes fit, and how you FEEL.”
She also described how she was told that she was ‘too fat’ to be a successful personal trainer.
Dana defied expectations, and now runs her own business coaching more than 40 women to reach their fitness goals and love their bodies.
