"You're not the only one who's dying. I am too."

Anna Victoria built an Instagram empire thanks in part to her killer Fit Body Guide (FBG) workouts. These workout plans may be easy to follow, but they definitely aren't easy to do-and both are reasons why they've been so effective for the thousands of women who've shared their transformations on Instagram.

What might surprise you, though, is that even Victoria struggles to get through the circuits she designed for the FBG. In a super-relatable Instagram Story rant, the trainer apologized to her followers for making her workouts so damn difficult-in a good way, of course.(Related: Anna Victoria Wants You to Know That Lifting Weights Doesn't Make You Less Feminine)

"Girls, I just want to take a minute to apologize to any of you that are doing the Fit Body App, because I was clearly on a mission to kill you on your workouts," she said in a video of herself.

"I just about died doing Sculpt," she continued. FYI, Sculpt is an FBG program that focuses on heavy-lifting gym workouts. (Lifting still seem scary to you? You can try this workout from Victoria's Shred FBG program, which is all about high-intensity bodyweight workouts. But also, don't be scared away from lifting weights. These common weightlifting questions for beginners should help guide you.)

Victoria went on to say that a tough workout shouldn't deter you from believing in yourself. If anything, pushing to the point of failure means that you're giving it your all. "Know that you're not alone," she said. "You're not the only one dying, I am too. But you can do it. If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you."

Victoria's moment of realness is a reminder to her followers that trainers do indeed complete their own workouts and are right there with you, earning that sweat equity. And regardless of how fit you are, notall workouts are a cakewalk. Victoria's own experience is proof that no fitness journey is linear, and that everyone is bound to have ups and downs. In her own words: "Just because it's hard doesn't mean you're doing anything wrong-it means you're doing it right. That's how you're going to get progress. So go slay your workout today if you haven't already."

Hi, my name is Kate and I would like to share my story. A few years ago, my body was full of cellulite. I used to be disgusted at how much cellulite I had. But, with patience and determination (and a lot of research!), I managed to almost eliminate it. All it took, was the right exercise program and a way to manipulate estrogen metabolism.

Hi, my name is Emma and I'm 36 years old. My story started when my husband left me for a 20-year old woman. After the divorce I gained 30 pounds, but with the emotional support of my best friend, not only did I manage to lose all of my excess weight, but I got into the best shape of my life! I was lucky enough to have found an amazing workout program that helped me drop pounds like crazy. Read my story here >> https://bit.ly/getabikinibody

It's been a year since my husband practically threw me away like GARBAGE for being too fat and disgusting, as he called me.And that’s when I decided I’d had enough… No matter what it took I was going to look great! The first thing I wanted to do was to get rid of cellulite. After much trial and error, I finally found a program that taught me the correct body movements to stimulate all 90 muscles of my lower body and the right way to optimize my hormones through nutrient balance. The end result is astonishing. Cellulite is gone.The firmness and tightness of my body is something I've never felt before.I feel proud of myself. And so can you...
