Life is too short
to care what others think

By Nina Munoz

Introduce yourself! Who are you?
Hi! My name is Nina Munoz and I’m a 25 year old fitness trainer and entrepreneur. I began chasing my dreams by starting my YouTube channel and filming my workouts. I soon grew my Instagram following and filmed fun workouts that women could do anywhere. I recently just created an online membership program ( I specfically designed the workouts so that they could be done anywhere while also being quick and effective! I also created Self-Love Vibes tank tops. There is so much meaning behind the shirts because it shows the world that you have self-love and that you can accomplish ANYTHING! My mission is to teach women how to gain self-love and confidence and that working out can be fun! Working out doesn’t need to be intimidating or a hassle.
It seems like lately Instagram has given fitness a bad rep. When you think of fitness on Instagram.. you think of half naked girls who think that they’re inspiraing young girls. When really all it’s doing is demotivating them and causing girls think that in order to get noticed, they have to post half-naked pictures. Fitness is more than just looking good, its about feeling good and confident! I’m just a girl who knew what she wanted and went after her dreams!

What is the best advice that you ever received?
What other people think of you is none of your business. Life is too short to care what others think! Do what you want and who cares what others think.

What would you say to a 16 year old you?
This is probably my favorite question! I would tell my 16 year old self that she is beautiful and that she doesn’t need validation from others. To ignore all the mean things that people said to her. Ignore the comments and know that those who picked on her were doing it because they were insecure with themselves and didn’t know how to properly express their feelings. Also, to not care what people think! Do what you want, don’t go to college and get a job because your family wants you to. Chase your dreams because anything is possible!

Have you ever had anyone doubt you?
Of course I did! I was in school to be an X-ray tech and I thought it was what I wanted.  I reached out to friends and family expressing how I felt and telling them I wasn’t happy going down this career path. No one really understood where I was coming from. The only person who believed in me was a dear friend of mine. I remember the day. I told them that being an X-ray tech wasn’t my dream. They supported me and told me to do what I felt was right.  I’m proud to say that I am a college drop out (lol).  I quit school, had no idea what was going to happen next. I just did what I loved to do. I started my YouTube Channel and began training my friends. I noticed girls making fitness videos on Instagram. So I started filming workouts for Instagram and soon created fitness plans. Eventually I created a membership site with workouts that could be done at home or the gym. Now my family and friends support me because they see how happy I am.
How did it make me feel?
To be honest, it motivated me! I wanted to prove to them that I can be successful while also chasing my dreams and doing what I truly love. 

What do you love most about yourself?
My determination. My determination and drive to never give up on anything. I know what I want and I’m not going to stop until I achieve those goals.

What motivates you the most?
When I receive emails and messages from girls saying how much they love the workouts and how my posts have helped boost their self-love and confidence! It warms my heart when girls comes to me for advice with personal things that they are going through. I’m grateful that I’m able to relate to them and help them through their issues. 

What is your dream job?
I’m doing it! I love helping women with their self-love while teaching them that working out can be fun!

What do you consider to be your biggest accomplishment?
Going after my dreams. The day I quit x-ray school and put all my time and effort into starting my business. 

What message do you think every woman needs to hear?
That you are enough. You can accomplish ANYTHING! Know what you want and go after it, don’t let anyone stop you. 

What do you do on a daily basis to grow and move forward?
I read from a motivational book every single morning. This puts me in a postive state of mind. I workout every day because it makes me feel strong, confident, and unstoppable! 

What are you biggest passions?
Oh, I have tons! Helping others achieve self-love and confidence. Having this is so important! You feel unstoppable when you have confidence. I enjoy helping people turn their passions into a business because life is too short to be doing something you hate. Working out, eating healthy, and reading motivational books are some of my other passions.

What is on your bucket list? 
Oh boy, I have a long bucket list lol! My bucket list is full of all the dreams and goals that I WILL accomplish and achieve! A few things on my bucket list are to be featured in Shape Magazine, Teaching a workout on Popsugar Fitness’ YouTube Channel, and host my first pop-up shop workout class!
