’90 Day Fiancé’: Anfisa Nava Explains Why She Doesn’t Talk About Her ‘Fitness Journey’

Anfisa Nava was widely regarded as a villain when she first appeared on TLC’s 90 Day Fiancé.

Anfisa’s husband, Jorge Nava, met her online and persuaded her to move from Russia to his home state of California on the K-1 spousal visa. Many fans thought Anfisa was materialistic or only wanted to come to the U.S.

Since then, though, many 90 Day Fiancé viewers have come around and started supporting Anfisa. It turned out that Anfisa’s husband wasn’t exactly honest with her about his finances, debt, or criminal record, which stopped them from being able to find stable housing. Jorge was arrested and is now behind bars in Arizona for two and a half years on felony charges related to his cannabis business.

While the status of Anfisa and Jorge’s relationship isn’t clear, what is clear is that Anfisa has made a life for herself in the U.S. The 24-year-old lives in California and has become a competitive bodybuilder, personal trainer, social media influencer, and college student in Jorge’s absence.

Recently, Anfisa shared her advice on shifting your mindset about fitness and health with her fans. 90 Day Fiancé fans couldn’t get enough of the Instagram influencer’s tips.

Anfisa said she preferred a fitness ‘lifestyle’ to a ‘journey’

Under a series of beachside bikini shots, Anfisa posted on Instagram about how she thinks about taking care of her body and health.

“I don’t like the phrase ‘fitness journey’ since ‘journey’ means traveling from one place to another,” the 90 Day Fiancé star wrote. “And once you reach your destination, then what? I prefer calling it a fitness lifestyle.”

Anfisa continued, “It can be hard to stick to your fitness regimen because people choose to suffer to reach the end goal and once they reach it…they often relapse. That’s why I chose to learn to enjoy the process and make fitness my lifestyle.”

Jorge’s wife (or possibly ex-wife) concluded by explaining that she loved the challenge of staying fit and improving her health. “I [am] often asked where…I get motivation,” she wrote, “and to be honest, I don’t need anything to motivate to do something I love.”

‘90 Day Fiancé’ fans flocked to the post to offer their support

90 Day Fiancé fans often ask Anfisa for advice on nutrition, workouts, and building muscle. She’s recently released workout plans and videos, as well as recipes and meal planning ideas, in response to the demand.

Anfisa’s most recent post was no exception, as fans couldn’t get enough of her fitness transformation over the past two years.

“You are such a dream queen!” one Instagram user wrote, adding that she loved how Anfisa ignored social media haters and criticism due to the show. “I love these pictures, but I love you way more! You are an inspiration to us all, you have always taken the high road and not stooped down to the level of the nasty people trying to throw shade.”

Another commenter praised her physique, writing, “I wish I could know how you eat daily and how you started bodybuilding. You look amazing.”

Yet another 90 Day Fiancé fan praised the reality TV personality for meeting her goals. They wrote, “You inspire me. I am proud of you. You have accomplished amazing things and you should be extremely proud of yourself.”

The Russia native recently became a certified personal trainer

Anfisa has accomplished a lot since arriving in the U.S. when she was just 20 years old. She recently became a certified personal trainer after spending two years building muscle and prepping for (and winning) bikini bodybuilding competitions.

The 90 Day Fiancé star also recently completed two years at a California community college and applied to transfer to the University of California, Irvine, to finish a bachelor’s degree. She hopes a college degree will help her build her business on Instagram and YouTube, as well as in-person fitness coaching.

In a recent YouTube video, Anfisa told her followers that she wouldn’t be opening up about her marriage to Jorge just yet. While she doesn’t seem to have a romantic partner at the moment, it’s unclear whether she is still planning on reconciling with her American husband or not when he finishes his prison sentence.
