Ten hours every night: That’s how much sleep Toronto-based fitfluencer Johanna Devries, 24, gets without fail. She says the intense snooze strategy allows her to wake up ready to face her 461,000 Instagram fans, who follow her daily exercise tutorials.[instagram]https://www.instagram.com/p/Bzy9bFohMNt/[/instagram]
As a freshman studying kinesiology at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, she leaned way in to her cafeteria diet (i.e., unlimited pizza) without participating in volleyball or soccer, the team sports she’d played in high school.[instagram]https://www.instagram.com/p/BuJe88cBWgt/[/instagram]
Resolving to find a balanced approach to eating and exercise, she started an Instagram account in 2016, @GrowWithJo, featuring videos of herself working out. By April 2017, she was regularly posting workout tutorials and had raked in about 3,000 followers. A year after that, she gained 100,000 more.[instagram]https://www.instagram.com/p/BzoCpyxhD6Q/[/instagram]
And she eats dessert on the reg. Her faves include coconut- and cashew-based ice cream and cookies. “I have a little bit of ice cream or a cookie every day,” she says.
“I love everything about my body now,” she adds. “When I have a thought that’s negative, I’ll correct it, like, ‘Actually no, I’m gorgeous.’”
