FACT CHECKED BY Christopher Roback

Whitney Simmons is looking pretty fit in pink at the gym. In a new social media post, the personal trainer and fitness influencer flaunts her fantastic figure in a pink sports bra and sweats while showing off her strength by doing barbell squats. "I hate to admit it, but… I did have fun," she says in the caption, revealing in the video that she hasn't done the exercise in years. Here is how she approaches the glute-busting move – and a few other of the top diet and fitness habits responsible for her amazing body. 

Barbell Squats

"I can't remember the last time I did a barbell squat," she says in the clip, starting without any weight at all and then adding 25-pound weights to each side of the bar. She then proceeded to do another set, squatting lower than before. For the third set, she added an extra five pounds per side

Here Is Her Go-to Glute Workout


In another Instagram video, Whitney shared her go-to glute workout:

1️⃣ 4×8 barbell RDL

2️⃣ 3×10 KAS glute bridge

3️⃣ 3×8 Bulgarian split squat

4️⃣ 3×10 glute dom back extension 

Weight Training


Weight training is Whitney's "go-to" form of fitness. "I feel so strong and powerful [when I do it!]," she told Life & Style. Before finding weights and transforming her body she did mostly cardio to stay as "skinny and small as possible." But once she "discovered" weight training, "that's when my entire transformation began, not only for my mental health but obviously my physical as well. My life has changed so much. I just want to be strong! Like nothing makes me feel more empowered than taking an hour to myself every day in the gym, chucking weights around, and taking that time for myself. You leave the gym on this rush, you just feel so good after a session like that!" she said.

Session Planning


Just like some people meal plan, Whitney plans her weightlifting sessions ahead of time. "Always go into the gym with a plan," she suggested. "There are so many free workouts online. I provide a new workout every single day, and there are so many women pushing so many amazing workouts online. Go into the gym with a plan, and start with something that's dumbbell only."  

90% Healthy Diet


Whitney eats healthy most of the time. "I'm all about living a healthy lifestyle, so I believe if you eat 90% healthy in the day, it's okay to have a chocolate chip cookie at the end of the day," she told the publication. "You've got to have that balance, otherwise you're just going to go crazy. The mental health is what started my entire fitness journey, and if I ate just protein shakes all day everyday I would lose my mind. It's all about balance. It's okay to treat yourself — you have to!" says Whitney.
