’90 Day Fiance’ Star Anfisa Nava Makes Unbelievable Transformation But Some Are Shaming Her New Bodybuilding Physique

by 1 year ago

90 Day Fiance star Anfisa Nava was never overweight, but never-the-less she has made an incredible body transformation to get ultra-lean and extremely toned. The reality TV star has put such an emphasis on her fitness that she even started competing in bodybuilding competitions. However, some bodyshamers are saying that her new physique is “too muscular.”

Before she met and married Jorge Nava and appeared on 90 Day FiancΓ©, she was Anfisa Arkhipchenko from Moscow, Russia. Anfisa has adjusted to American life quite well, despite her husband being arrested and sentenced to 2.5 years in jail for possession of drugs. On February 12, 2018, Jorge was stopped by police and he had 293 pounds of high-grade marijuana in his trunk of his car, a class two felony that his lawyer got reduced to a class four felony.


Without her husband in her life, Anfisa has put her energy and focus on her fitness. She decided to become a competitive bodybuilder and has really put in the work. Anfisa shredded the pounds and built muscle with a low-carb diet and rigorous workout regimen.




After a few months, her transformation to competitive bodybuilder was complete and she was ready to compete.


Anfisa documented her workouts on her YouTube channel.

On June 22, Anfisa entered the NPC West Coast Classic, for which she lost 26 pounds. Anfisa wrote on Instagram: “SO excited to have gotten first call outs in all three classes I did!!! Can’t wait for the finals tonight! Thank you coach @paulrevelia and @teamprophysique for the footage and for your support! Pls remind me to wear earrings though.”


In her first competition, Anfisa won 2nd place in the novice division and 5th place in the open.

The reality TV star shared her journey to the NPC West Coast Classic bodybuilding event on Anfisa’s YouTube channel.

Despite her success, there were some bodyshamers who said that Anfisa had “become too muscular.”


Some of the bodyshaming comments included: β€œWhy does woman wants guys muscles and abs” and β€œDamn… you look like a dude! Time to stop.”

Another Instagram comment said: β€œDamn you have taken a turn for the worst. It’s too much! You’re starting to look like a man.”

“You’re by far the hottest of all the ’90 Day Fiance’ women. Just don’t get too muscular, keep your beautiful femininity,” one user wrote.

While others asked if she had an β€œeating disorder.”

“You look amazing but me personally don’t like to much [sic] muscle on a woman. But it’s my opinion,” someone said online. “You looked good before putting so much muscle in your arms and legs. But you look cute just the same!!!”

Anfisa responded to the bodyshamers by saying that she has “never felt more feminine and happy than I do now” in an Instagram post.

“They say “Muscles make you look manly”… I personally have never felt more feminine and happy than I do now. It’s all about how you feel on the inside and not what you look like on the outside. All shapes and sizes can be beautiful as long as you live in harmony with yourself.”
