Who is LeanBeefPatty?
LeanBeefPatty is an American fitness influencer who is active on YouTube, TikTok, Instagram and other social platforms. Her real first name is Patricia, and she was born in 1997 in the United States. Her exact birth date is yet to be revealed. She is known for posting fitness-related content on her social media.
Early life of LeanBeefPatty
Patty grew up alongside her parents, who taught her to love sports from a very young age. After trying out different sports and physical activities, Patty decided that she wanted to do gymnastics. Her parents supported her decision and watched Patty become a great successful young gymnast. When Patty was just a child, most of her free time was consumed by gymnastics, which she loved. On the other hand, when she had to quit gymnastics in high school in order to focus on studying, Patty didn’t know what to do. She was used to having her whole days and weekends planned ahead with just a little room for other things.
LeanBeefPatty and eating disorder
Nowadays, when you look at Patty, it’s really hard to imagine her struggling with eating and gaining weight. But even though it might not seem like it, the fitness icon suffered from an eating disorder for a brief moment. Once she quit gymnastics, which included exhausting workouts and training every day, Patty naturally gained some weight. But since gymnasts are usually required to be skinny, and Patty was used to that norm, she couldn’t bare looking any different. While her parents comforted her, Patty had a really hard time eating food because it meant more possible weight. Luckily, her father didn’t take it lightly and talked with Patty until they found a solution.
Fitness journey of LeanBeefPatty
Once she realised her soon-to-be-serious eating disorder, Patty started to think about other ways to get comfortable in her own body. Since she was used to sports and physical activities, she began searching for one which wouldn’t require as much time as gymnastics did. Patty knew that her father had been going to the gym from time to time, so she asked him to take her along. He gladly agreed and, the next day, took Patty to the gym for the first time. Since her dad wanted to do his thing, he just left Patty there alone to figure it out.
Her initial path to fitness wasn’t as easy as it might seem. Even though Patty was a gymnast veteran, she never learned how to work out properly, with the intention of gaining muscle. Her mind was a different problem since Patty had to overcome the dangerous mindset that was telling her to eat less. Once she learned something about proper nutrition, Patty started seeing results faster, but she had to deal with body dysmorphia instead.
LeanBeefPatty on gym culture
While it might seem like her bread and water, Patty began learning about the gym and fitness culture just recently. When it comes to her incredible physique, she did it all by herself. Patty liked going to the gym and learning how to do specific workouts alone because it calmed her mind. Of course, she made contact with a few people who came to the gym regularly, but she never got too deep. Patty was never interested in competing in fitness, the same as she didn’t like competing in gymnastics. Because of that, Patty got used to working out for herself, which meant that she hardly ever discussed it outside the gym. She learned about the culture much later when her account went viral on TikTok.
LeanBeefPatty on TikTok
Patty decided to join TikTok in March 2021 on a whim. She felt like she had learned a lot about the gym and workout and that she could pass that knowledge on to other people. She began by posting instructional workout videos, which were as educational as possible. Some people came across her channel and decided to stay for Patty’s workout tutorials. Once she became a mediocre popular influencer, Patty began reading her fans’ suggestions.
One of the most popular requests was to do cosplay on one strong female character from an anime called Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure. Patty took her time before finally posting the cosplay transition, which immediately went viral. Since then, Patty began asking her audience for suggestions, whether it was for amusement or knowledge. Her fans loved that she was so engaged with them and that she actually cared for their wishes. Patty continued doing what she loved, and suddenly, she noticed that she had attracted millions of followers.
LeanBeefPatty on YouTube
Patty joined YouTube about the same time she appeared on TikTok. She just wanted to inspire people and help them with their workouts. One of the things that made Patty so popular was the fact that she differed from most female fitness influencers. Patty’s goal was never to get skinny, get a flat belly or have the most basic desirable figure. While she isn’t against any of those goals, Patty’s plan is just to have fun. She enjoys her workouts every time without thinking about the outcome too much. She revealed that she actually struggles to make her body look any particular way because she can’t focus on one goal for that long. Patty usually does what workout she likes and then realises what it is made for.
Patty treated her YouTube channel the same way she treated TikTok: She began by posting fitness tutorials and advice and then asking her fans for suggestions. Since people loved the way Patty looked, they asked for her diet very frequently. She decided to fulfil their wish and filmed a What I Eat In A Day video. Because of her genuine ad easy-going personality alongside a realistic picture of Patty’s diet, that video became viral and attracted a lot of people to her channel. Her most popular video is LeanBeefPatty – Leg Day At A New Gym, with over 3,1 million views. Her most viewed video perfectly describes Patty’s platform: She just works out for fun while joking around and adding an occasional fact.
