Billie Lee isn't waiting until the new year to start getting after her fitness resolutions. The transgender activist and former Vanderpump Rules SURver just posted photos and videos on Instagram from her new gym, where Billie says she's found not only a great personal trainer, but an environment where she feels at home.
"Looking back at photos of my physical journey," she wrote on Instagram, reflecting on how she felt after the butt lift procedure she underwent in 2018.
Billie wasn't done transforming her body, and her new goal was getting fit and strong, as she puts it. "That said I also felt weak and vulnerable to toxic masculinity so I decided to get fit and strong. I asked the universe for the best trainer for me," Billie wrote. "I literally has fit women as my wallpaper and on my #visionboard I wanted to get strong. Not just cute or thin. I also didn’t want to bulk up or be too masculine."
That's when she found Los Angeles' HVY Industry, a gym which calls itself "a trainer’s paradise" with the mantra of welcoming all races, religions, cultures, sexual orientations, and gym-goers of all abilities. This turned out to be exactly what Billie had in mind.
"I was always scared of public corporate gyms. What if I just didn’t like the vibe or I get overwhelmed by how many people are grunting in one location, under one roof," she wrote. "Walking into @hvyindustry was mind blowing. A gym that thrives off acceptance and good vibes. I’ve never felt so comfortable and confident at a gym in my life."
Billie's videos show her tackling walking lunges with waits, under the watch of her trainer R. Chambers. It's a great reminder to find the fitness routine and gym that works for you, and Billie wants to encourage everyone to get active, writing: "Come workout with me! Let’s make 2020 the best year yet!"
