We’ve all been through this situation before: the desire to get back into sports comes to the fore and then we turn to YouTube to find training videos. Just when we think we’ve found our happiness, hell begins: the level is too high, we quickly run out of steam and throw in the towel. Then we open Instagram and discover countless posts with the hashtag No Pain No Gain straight from fitness hell. To avoid that kind of disappointment, here are five “good mood” influencers to follow on social networks.
Pamela Reeve (@pamela_rf)
25-year-old German Pamela Reeve exploded in popularity during confinement. On Instagram and YouTube as well, the athletic lady has more than eight million subscribers. What do we like?

A true French nugget, Alaïa “helps women feel beautiful and confident without a restrictive diet or frustration,” she likes to say. And for good reason, on her website, the young woman explained that she has been a victim of these practices in the past: “I’ve been restricting diets for months and months and tested a lot of more or less effective workouts. I’ve been obsessed with calories all day… (…) Obsessed with other girls on Insta that I wanted to look like. Today, Ala ensures that no one else will have that experience.
