165“Every sunset is followed by a sunrise and a new start” J.S.
Forget Kim Kardashian and meet the new bootylicious queen Jen Selter! This 22 years old fitness expert from Manhattan has amassed a billion Instagram visits since March 2012. Every fitness fanatic eagerly awaits Jen’s daily ‘Belfie’ the new toned backside photo of this voluptuous diva. The new ‘it’ girl of the women’s fitness movement has raked in more than 5 million Instagram followers (even Rihanna is among them); and there’s nearly 65,000 FB followers all giving plenty of “thumbs up” on the page! Now that Jen Selter is a famous fitness celeb, she’s merged her fitness brand with such worldwide marque names as New Balance, Lululemon, Nike, NY 2о and Game Plan Nutrition. Due to her hu-u-uge social media fame the gorgeous spokesmodel has been featured in Elle, USA Today, Cosmopolitan, Vanity Fair and the NY Times, as well as other fitness, fashion and and nutrition magazines.

166This is how the legend started
Just a few people are aware that the roots of Jen’s desire for a perfect body go back to her childhood. In high school she was bullied by her classmates who called her ‘Pelican’. She decided she would do her best to make people talk about her body, as well as her face. At the age of 15 she had a rhinoplasty procedure done to enhance the appearance of her “Pelican-like”, flat nose. That surgery helped her to become more self confident. With sports as her main hobby and with her meteoric accent based on her stand out asset – ‘das bootie’, the rest is history. Even with the rhinoplasty she tried not to attract attention to her face. You can notice this detail when scrolling through her Instagram account, where it’s more about the body-beautiful and fitness and not the face.

167Photo-shopped or Not?!
Jen’s body measurements are just incredible (height – 167 cm (5’5 feet); weight – 55kg (121.3 lbs); BMI – 19,7; body type – hourglass). She has an unbelievably toned buttocks coupled with a flat belly. Malicious gossip has it that her hypnotizing shape has nothing to do with the fitness or extensive workouts; that her great look was accomplished with implants. The squat princess parries that ‘It doesn’t offend me. It’s nothing but nonsense! My butt is real and it’s the result of my hard work – not surgery, not photoshop’. She admits some of her photos look a little bit provocative but all she wants is to inspire people to go exercise and to embrace a sport. ‘Yep, my photos are often overly focused on my backside. I just want people to realize that everyone can achieve the same results’.

She makes no bones of the matter she’s incredibly proud of her body and likes to admire it in front of the mirror or making the fabulous ‘Belfie-Selfie’ shots. She posts belfies, and came up with the hashtag ‘#seltering’ to show her own way of building the glutes. Now Jen is preparing to launch her own brand of fitness and yoga clothing. Her biggest dream is to open a chain of worldwide fitness clubs to help people stay in shape.
