Strong is beautiful and the Danish fitness model and social media phenom, Mia Sand, also known as MissMiaFit is a bold testament to that. She is redefining the way fitness and beauty had been viewed over the years. Mia has always been this big girl with curves and growing up, she saw herself as different from the other girls who seemingly had the perfect physique; smaller with the sought after zero sizes compared to her.
Rather than wallow in self-pity and settle to a lifestyle of comparison and dissatisfaction, Sand decided to defy the norms by setting her own pace and adopting her own image. She set to work to become who and what she wants to be and not what the society thinks she should be. She understood that people can only take from you what you allow, and as such, did not let others define what she can achieve.
Already a mother of one and way over 25 years, Mia Sand took to the gym. Through sheer hard work and commitment to her course, she has built not only an aesthetic physique but a strong one as well. She has successfully rebranded her looks and became popular thereby and is also a sponsored athlete and one of the most sorted faces in the industry. Moreover, she serves as an inspiration for young women and mothers. She dares them to be different and not be afraid to break the norm.

Growing up, Sand discovered that unlike girls her age who are seemingly smaller, she is tall and has all the curves in the right places. Being that size zero was the in thing for most girls, she had trouble accepting her size. Tapping into her thoughtfulness, she took her eyes away from the scale and chose to focus on the mirror instead. She did not allow other’s perception of her to define her or what she can achieve.
