When Teyana Taylor set the MTV Video Music Awards ablaze in the premiere of Kanye West’s sultry “Fade” visual back in August 2016, her toned physique and electrifying choreography left the world dumbstruck. Unsurprisingly, celebrities from Chrissy Teigen to Yaya DaCosta praised the multi-talent for her on-screen routine and post-baby bod, while everyone else renewed their Planet Fitness memberships that Monday morning.
Taylor’s mesmerizing performance (and razor-cut abs) unleashed a series of questions regarding the G.O.O.D Music signee’s workout routine and the singer finally gifted the world the answer: Fade2Fit, a tailored 90-day online fitness series where members are given dance and workout routines, meal plans and other perks that offer fans a look into Taylor’s fitness “secrets.”
In honor of the new workout program’s official launch, her sweat. rounded up a few of Teyana Taylor’s fitspo quotes to help you through your fitness journey.
