“I started my journey with Tracy’s #gybg (hashtag: Got Your Back Girl) Challenge in January 2016. Over the next 15 weeks, I lost over 35 pounds, and by the end of the year, I had lost half of my body fat. Tracy and her #tamily kept me motivated and supported throughout my weight loss. Since the #gybg Challenge required participants all over the world to post daily workout clips on Instagram, I began to feel accountable to the community to show up for myself every day by working out. I would have never believed that social media could change my life in so many ways, but it literally did—new body, new friends, new career, new city—new ME.” – Julie Roberts, 43

Sean Cook lost 15 pounds

“What helped me on my weight loss journey was seeking not only a group fitness class, but also looking around on Instagram for inspiration. I’ve lost 15 pounds since starting my journey. Instagram was such a motivator for me because I was starting from absolutely no fitness experience and eating whatever. I started doing Harley’s classes at Barry’s and following him on social media and it really changed my body. I also started collecting photos off Instagram of guys I wanted to look like, but instead of being jealous like I always had been before, I started changing my point of view and imagining what I would look like with these specific muscles.” – Sean Cook, 38
