Aly Raisman's Inspiring Message For Reebok's #PerfectNever Campaign Makes Us Want to Do Push-Ups

Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman wants girls everywhere to know their bodies are perfect just the way they are. The 22-year-old athlete opened up about the bullying she faced in grade school from her male classmates in a recent Instagram post.

"Shoutout to all the boys from 5th-9th grade who made fun of me for being 'too strong,'" she wrote. "Thanks for forcing me to learn to love myself and my body. My muscular arms that were considered weird and gross when I was younger have made me one of the best gymnasts on the planet."

Aly says one of the reasons she loves being a part of Reebok's #PerfectNever campaign is because she gets to expand people's views about what "a perfect body type" looks like. "Don't ever let anyone tell you how you should or shouldn't look. There is no such thing as a perfect body type," she concluded.

The inspiring photo has received over 186,000 "likes" and has solidified why Aly Raisman will forever be one of our favourite fitness heroes.
