I use to live in Utah for 2 years, the parents are a little out of control. So this is not surprise to me at all…
This is Mindi Jensen, a middle school teacher in Utah.
She’s also a bodybuilder who posts pictures of her workouts and competitions on Instagram.
She does it all under a fake name, for the simple reason that she didn’t want her kids to find the pics of here. But its 2015 and if its online, it will be found.
But that didn’t stop parents from complaining:
“These kids found it and the parents were appalled by the pictures they called it immodest. They called it pornographic. They called the pictures inappropriate and these are my fitness and show pictures in my sport, in my uniform in my bodybuilding sport,” said Jensen.
The teacher told FOX 4 that she’d started bodybuilding and modeling when she became depressed. The mother of four lost so much weight during that time that she knew she had to begin focusing on making herself healthier again. And what better way to do that than to work out and participate in competitive sports?
“I thought with my body being stronger maybe it would soak into my emotions, my heart and my brain and strengthen that so I started fitness,” said Jensen. “I get women, single woman, single mommas that message me, even on Instagram they will message me and tell me that what they read and what they see that I’m doing has inspired them to be healthier, has inspired them to leave a bad situation, to build strength.”
