About six years ago, Massy Arias had just gotten out of an abusive relationship, and her brother was battling Hodgkin's lymphoma. The emotional toll of both was enormous. She felt lost. Depressed. And so she retreated to her apartment, barely ate, and dropped an unhealthy amount of weight. Her gums receded and her hair fell out as the depression deepened over the course of nearly eight months. Massy tried therapy, hypnosis, herbal treatments. Nothing worked. Until she hit the gym.
Though never a regular exerciser, she just hopped onto an elliptical, then banged out one pushup after another. "I didn't know anything; I was just looking for that thing that was going to give me the mental release I needed." She shared her routines and her journey on social media as a way of inspiring others, never planning on making a job out of it. But when people started asking technical Qs, she decided to get certified. Three years in, she and her husband (who owns a production company) made an official business plan, now known as her MA30Day lifestyle program.
The 29-year-old's workout plans are tough—a mix of resistance training, calisthenics, yoga, and HIIT—and they're fueled by a deeper purpose, says Massy, a newly appointed CoverGirl, the brand's first fitfluencer. "We quit a bit too quickly, and we don't find out what we're made of. My goal is to have people believe in themselves a little. Because that's how I got better, and that's the reason why I'm here: not giving up, believing in myself, a lot of trial and error, and a lot of failure."
