Goodbye “Hot Girl Summer” and hello Fit Girl Fall, thanks to Megan Thee Stallion‘s new partnership with Nike, where she will act as your personal trainer.
Meg has joined Nike’s Training Club app to help fans whip themselves into shape, and will share her workouts alongside trainer Tara Nicolas across several installments.
The “Savage” rapper took to Instagram to make the announcement and reminisced about the journey she took to find herself, during which she learned to drown out those telling her who she should be. Meg, who dubs herself “Thee Hot Girl Coach” in her promo video, let fans know that finding one’s self is a time-consuming but worthwhile process.
The Grammy winner explained that strangers used to make assumptions based off her height and physique when she was growing up in Houston, Texas, which often led into unwanted suggestions about what sport she should play. Meg revealed she tried basketball, volleyball and track to appease everyone, but “They just weren’t for me. I knew I had to find my passion.”
Her passion, she says, is performing, and she asserted why that, as well as dancing and rapping, should be considered sports.
“Let’s see you run through 12-hour dance rehearsals, train five days a week, then perform in front of 50,000 people squatting 50 percent of the time,” she quipped.
Megan’s main message? “People like to tell us what we can and we can’t do. But we ain’t hearing that. Real Hot Girls know, no one can define us.”
“I am an athlete, and so are you,” she wrote in the caption.
The NTC app is available for iPhone and Android devices.
