Every Body celebrates inclusivity and the representation of human beings in every shape and form.

Scroll through the Instagram #fitspo tag and you鈥檒l be bombarded with images of thigh gaps, tanned white girls, and impossibly toned hourglass figures.

Dominican-American personal trainer Massy Arias, also known as MankoFit, is bringing a lot more diversity to this scene with her thick thighs, tattoos, and body positive messages. Maybe it鈥檚 because the 28-year-old came to fitness from an unconventional route 鈥 one that social media is now making possible.

Arias began working out to help fight her chronic depression and posted online about the process as a way to keep herself accountable. Eventually, she put up a photo of her newly toned abs, which earned her lots of attention and a ton of new followers.

Oh hey there, it's been a while since I've posted a gym selfie. Muscle finally coming back and I'm feeling strong. If you are wondering I'm doing no traditional methods of cardio. Just heavy lifts, HIIT, and mobility training. I'll post a clip from my leg day session today because it was killer! Ladies, my cute little outfit from #c9attarget . I'm feeling these basketball shorts so much I'm going to be wearing them all summer! Currently standing at 5'8 1/2 " 151lbs (weight has never been how I measure my progress and neither should be how you measure yours. Focus on how you feel and how you look in the mirror). I've been only focusing on my performance. The harder I train, the more my body keeps responding. Happy Thursday Fam. WWW.MASSYARIAS.COM #ma30day #anewkindofstrong #childofgod _____________________________________________________________ Feliz jueves mi gente! Ten铆a tanto tiempo que no publicaba un selfie en el gym. Mi m煤sculo ya comienza a repararse y veo mi imposici贸n corporal en mejores condiciones cada semana. Si me preguntan yo no he hecho cardio prolongado. Solo me he enfocado en levantar pesado, entrenamiento de alta intensidad que es una forma de cardio pero que ayuda a construir m煤sculo, y trabajo de movilidad. Ahora mismo peso 151lbs (mi peso nunca ha sido la unidad que mide mi progreso y nunca deber铆a ser la de ustedes tampoco. Enf贸quense en c贸mo se sienten y c贸mo se ven en frente del espejo). Mientras m谩s salgo de mi zona de comfort, m谩s mi cuerpo responde a dar cambios positivos. Buena vibra mi gente! Los amo! #hijadecristo

Motivated by this feedback, Arias got certified as a personal trainer, and with the help of Instagram, her empire rapidly grew. Her popularity spawned 30-day meal and workout plans available on her website, where a paying community clamors for her advice.

She now posts short workout videos about three times a week to her Instagram that use minimal props and relatively simple moves, with commentary in both English and Spanish. She also works with brands like Listerine and Target to promote products to her 2.2 million Instagram followers.

Okay so here it is, 9 days #postpartum. Recovering and eating as best as I can with enough caloric surplus for milk supply. I've been counting my macros and using my 8-week macro friendly program which is available on my website (click link in my bio). You saw how active I was during my pregnancy and how well I ate. I had a natura labor with no complications (thank God and to this lifestyle). I am still practicing what I believe in : food is medicine and I don't deprive myself from any food groups. I just EAT WHOLE AND EAT WELL. Mantain my protein intake high to support muscle (thank you @trusupplements for that amazing plant based protein. That was my life savior and still is). I drink about a gallon of fluids (mostly water). With the macro calculator on my program I've hit "mantain" with no exercise (of course). And apply 600-800 extra calories to support my milk supply. It's amazing what you can do when you know specifically what to eat. I do miss movement but first, I have to heal properly. THIS POST ISN'T INTENDED TO SET ANY EXPECTATIONS OR TO BE NEGATIVE. WE HAVE ALL DIFFERENT JOURNEYS. I LOVE YOU GUYS WWW.MASSYARIAS.COM _____________________________________________________________ 9 d铆as #postparto Recuperandome y comiendo lo mejor que pueda con surplus cal贸rico para el suministro de leche. He estado contando mis macronutrientes y usando mi programa de 8 semanas que calcula tus macros que est谩 disponible en mi paguina (haga clic en el enlace en mi bio no a煤n en espa帽ol ). Todos ustedes vieron mi actividad y mi nutrici贸n durante mi embarazo. Practico lo que creo: la comida es medicina y no me privo de cualquier grupo de alimentos. Mantengo mi % de prote铆na alto para mantener mi masa muscular lo m谩s que pueda (gracias @trusupplements por esa incre铆ble prote铆na a base de plantas, que fue mi salvaci贸n antes y durante mi embarazo. Bebo alrededor de un gal贸n de l铆quidos (principalmente agua). CADA MUJER ES DIFERENTE ! ESTA PUBLICACI脫N NO EST脕 DESTINADA A ESTABLECER EXPECTATIVAS PARA NINGUNA MUJER, NI SER NEGATIVA. TENEMOS DIFERENTES JORNADAS Y COMIENZOS. NO SE LES OLVIDE. LAS AMO!

As much as social media is called-out for being vapid and cliched, it also gives different voices the chance to gain a platform. And while Arias might be killing it as a fitness entrepreneur thanks to Instagram, she鈥檚 also trying to expand our idea of what a fit woman looks like.

鈥淪kinny? Gotta gain weight because no one likes bones. Chubby? Eat healthy! 鈥 We, women, are constantly shamed for everything so we, as well, might do whatever we want,鈥 is written over an image of Arias on Instagram looking toned but also impossibly strong 鈥 no wasp waists or thigh gaps in sight.

And since becoming a mom, she鈥檚 working harder than ever to change the conversation about women鈥檚 bodies.

鈥淔irst and foremost I think so many people only focus on the 鈥楽napBack鈥 factor of the postpartum process post pregnancy, but don鈥檛 even pay mind to a woman鈥檚 internal recovery, mental recovery, and how her body is able to reconnect itself after being completely thrown out of proportion,鈥 Arias says on Instagram.

Arias is now incorporating her young daughter into her routines by lifting the baby carrier like weights and dancing for her. One thing鈥檚 definitely the same 鈥 her infectious energy, positivity, and goofy personality. But Arias wants people to understand that there鈥檚 more to her, and to feeling fit, than the picture-perfect moments captured on her social media.

鈥淒on鈥檛 ask me how my body is looking after going through a marathon! Ask me how I鈥檓 feeling!鈥 says Arias in another Instagram post.

#anewkindofstrong? That鈥檚 what this movement is all about.
