Hayley captioned the post: ‘Posed Vs Relaxed. Posing is a huge part of changing how our bodies are perceived by others.
‘Take the fitness booty shot for instance, arching your back and pushing your hip out make your Glutes look a lot bigger and fuller.
‘It’s okay to pose like that if you want to but damn it hurts! It’s also a major effort.
‘BUT the people you’re looking at online may pose like this in every single picture they take, including Videos too! So never compare yourself against their posed bodies!
‘Because they don’t look like that either! Love who you are and stop comparing.’

Hayley has been candid with her followers about her fitness goals, admitting recently that it took her six years to get a healthy mindset after competing in bodybuilding shows.
She explained that her goals have shifted to allow herself to enjoy training and to stop binge eating, after previously focusing on burning calories and tracking her food intake.
In one post, the former bodybuilder said her periods stopped due to over exercising and under eating.
Hayley said: ‘It’s so detrimental to our health as women, yet to compete in such a sport it’s considered almost ‘normal’ to lose your cycle. If I knew this would have happened I would have thought twice before I started competing.

Losing your period due to this can cause many implications such as early onset osteoporosis, increased risk of heart disease, impaired cognitive function, reduction in muscle growth, potential increase in depression and sleeplessness, increased stress and reduced longevity.
‘It’s important to understand that looking after your health may mean you need to but body fat on, every female is different when it comes to potentially losing her period from over exercising/under eating but learning to trust your body and listen to what it needs is key.
‘Even if it means changing what you think is your ‘identity’ because the people that matter in your life will love you no matter what.’
