Does Massy Arias struggle with depression?

Massy was born in the Dominican Republic but wasn’t happy there. She wanted to change her life, so she moved to the United States when she was just 13 years old. This journey had a lot of obstacles, for example, the fact that she didn’t speak English at all. She grew up in poverty and struggled for a long time, even after she moved. She started working full-time at 17 because she needed to earn money for food. She has always been a proud person and wanted to prove to herself and her parents that she could make it. She worked hard, but besides financial struggles, she suffered from depression.

Because of her depression, she hit rock bottom and didn’t know what to do. She tried herbal treatment, natural supplements and hypnosis, but nothing worked. Eventually, she found the strength to exercise a little and found out that she started to feel less horrible. She started exercising more and more, obsessing about fitness. She worked out that much because it felt like a drug that helped her with her mental problems. She struggled with her self-image, thinking that her body didn’t look like it should. She disrespected herself, and since that time, she has tried to support other people who struggle as much as she did.

Massy Arias on YouTube

Massy joined YouTube in 2012 to inspire other people and share her fitness journey. She was a fan of Jamie Eason and wanted to try her fitness program but discovered that she was too weak. Massy was very skinny from the times she was struggling to obtain food and actually eat. She didn’t let that stop her and started slowly gaining strength and sharing her journey on YouTube. People started to ask for her training advice, so she decided to get certified, so she could share helpful advice.

Since that time, Massy has gained millions of followers throughout her social platforms. She uses her influence to support women and encourage them to love their bodies. Her YouTube channel consists of fitness videos of all kinds, presenting all types of exercise. Massy pushes her fans to challenge themselves and work hard to see their dream results. On her Instagram, she posted a few Before & After pictures to show that it’s worth it. And the results are obvious. Massy changed from a shy skinny girl to a strong woman with a great physique and figure.

Personal life and achievements of Massy Arias

Massy met her husband, Stefan Williams, in 2012 and got engaged three years after. Her husband is also passionate about bodybuilding and supports Massy in everything she wishes for. They had their first daughter, Sarai, in 2017. At that time, Massy appeared on a few magazine covers because she had a six-pack when 4 months pregnant. Her pregnancy helped her to become a better trainer because she understood the struggle of seeing your own body change so much.

As she got more followers, Massy started getting requests from her fans to training them personally. She wanted to help them, so she invited them to her gym and showed them her usual routine. The gym found out and revoked her membership because she wasn’t allowed to train people in a gym with paid trainers. She then moved her lessons to the park, where she charged some money for attending. As a peak of her influencer career, Massy created her own fitness app called Empowered. Her motto is Striving For Progress, Not Perfection. Her community is called MA Warriors, and it is getting bigger by the day.
