It wasn’t long until she’s attained masses of followers, inspiring others around the world to begin their own fitness journey.

Since then, she created a website to offer her services as a personal trainer; on a mission to help others realize their dream physiques.

There is nothing wrong of showing and embracing your sexy side, society tends to judge and put down a woman who is confident enough to show those sides of her. In reality, none of those people judging are making a positive contribution to your life, most likely you don’t even know those people! Then why do you listen and worry about opinions of strangers, it doesn’t make any sense right? Be yourself babe! And only listen to people who are elevating you!

However, fitness model reveals that her anxiety still has its place. “Well, I’ve had insecurity issues about my breasts for years. I thought about getting implants for 10 years, on and off. About a year and a half ago, I decided not to do it,” she told Muscle&Fitness.

Lequeux receives tons of negative comments about her “imperfect” figure but tries not to take them close to heart.

📸 @lee_lhgfx lhgfx || ANSWER ME THIS… why do you wanna be “fit”⁉️ My answer is very simple because it makes me HAPPY! It helps me see the world in a more positive loving way… What I’ve found is my main key to enjoy and live the lifestyle is doing everything out of positivity, out of love for the life I’m living and for the health in creating in my body. Start using that positive vibe as a fuel and you will see how everything changes, many of us have found some kind of safe haven in our fitness lifestyles, the gym becomes like a place where we can all have therapy for whatever is going on, but negativity is not a sustainable fuel yes those days you might have a killer workout but you can base this lifestyle out of negative emotions, you won’t last like that. Many of you have starting or still chasing shallow goals like a “summer body” and yes when you are young those things might have a strong meaning, but as you grow old you will find yourself repeating a vicious circle of getting in shape and losing it after summer. STICK TO LOVE STAY POSITIVE and you will see how you can really adapt a healthy living to the rest of your days… – – #fitgirl #fitspiration #strongnotskinny #strongwomen #women #fitness #fitnessmotivation #glamour #beauty #motivation #fitspo #inspiration #positive #positivevibes #healthylifestyle #beachbum #beachlife

“They say things like, “Flat chest!” or “Where’s the boobs?” or “You look like a man!” I even had an overweight guy criticize me while I was creating video content for my page when I was working out on the beach. The comments are endless. Some people kill themselves because of comments like that. They hurt.”

Although, we can’t notice that her physique is really great. And 1 million account-holder gave us an exclusive tip to be fit: “A six-pack won’t come from an abs fairy, a magic pill, or from whatever shortcut you can think about! It’s all about hard work!”

“Everyone needs to understand that your body is capable of amazing things and you can shape it and build it to its highest potential.”
What about internet trolls Valentina seems to have found the way of how to struggle with them.

“When you look deeper into who are making those comments, they have significant insecurities. It’s sad, but they’re probably going through something. What annoys me, though, is that these trolls are always hiding. Their accounts are always private, and they have no photos on their profiles. I’d like to see if they would say the same stuff to my face.”

All in all, Lequeux promises to keep up the pace, not to lay down and continue to cheer us with her awesome snaps.

“I will keep expanding my network and finding better ways to reach you, motivate you and connect with you. You are my pillars on this journey aside from my number one supporter, my husband, and I intend to keep on inspiring the best way I know how – this journey is just beginning people so stay tuned for much much more of me!”

Stop trying to be liked by everyone‼️ (español abajo) Specially during weekends we get invitations and events! It’s ok to say NO! If you know you have to! The people who loves you will accept and support your journey and will always be there! Take advantage of those moments to kick out the fake ones! – – Deja de tratar de gustarle a todo el mundo‼️ ¡Especialmente durante los fines de semana recibimos invitaciones y eventos! ¡Está bien decir NO! ¡Si sabes que tienes que hacerlo! ¡Las personas que te aman aceptarán y apoyarán tu camino sea cual sea y siempre estarán allí! ¡Aprovecha esos momentos para expulsar a las falsas amistades!!! – 📸 @partylikejzl 🏡 @arsenic Styled by: @styledbyhassni – – #fitgirl #fitspiration #strongnotskinny #strongwomen #women #fitness #fitnessmotivation #glamour #beauty #motivation #fitspo #inspiration #positive #positivevibes #healthylifestyle #beachbum #beachlife

I have achieved a level of happiness in my life that I am so proud of and wish for all of you to experience. Here I am 100% me, exposed (covering all the important parts 😂) you guys know I always show my most raw self, I answer any question you ask me and I give you the most honest answers. But I wasn’t always so confident in being this exposed. So how did I get here? 1. I married my number one supporter and believer in what I can accomplish. I let go of friends and people in my life who were negative or dragging me down. So, surrounding yourself with people who will only help you instill in your mind that you CAN and WILL achieve anything you want in life. 2. Believing in myself. Repeat positive thoughts every day, several times a day like “I will…”, “I am…” “I can…” you get the drift, POSITIVITY only from now on. The minute you say I can’t is when you limit yourself, you decide your future not anyone else. 3. Stop making lame excuses and blaming issues on everyone else but yourself. Never be a victim of life; be it's conqueror. You say there’s things I “can’t control”, my loved one is sick, my boyfriend broke up with me, I failed my exam, I don’t have enough time. I have experienced all of that and it is a bunch of nonsense. YOU control your attitude in everything, YOU choose what you want to feel. YOU and only YOU can decide to change your mentality. 4. Understand that things don’t get done by themselves, while you’re going out for drinks, or going to the movies, the club, a party or simply staying home glued to the tv for hours, other people are working hard toward their dreams. None of this was handed to me, I have been working hard EVERY DAY since the day I decided to start. And once I achieve something it’s time to move on to the next project. Never rest in the glory. 5. “Failure is not an option,” this is such a bullshit sentence. Without all my failures I wouldn’t have learned new and better ways to achieve things, met new contacts, and I wouldn’t know what I don’t want in life. These failures/set backs/life altering moments; cancer, death, losing invested money ⬇️CONTINUED IN COMMENTS ⬇️ 📷| @milianeyes 💄| @bymarimelo 🏠| @arsenic
