Get it, girl! 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After star Paola Mayfield's modeling career was the center of a huge fight between her and her husband Russ Mayfield last season of the series because he was upset that she posed topless in a super sexy photo shoot. But now, Pao has a new job and it's safe to say, Russ approves!
Pao took to Instagram earlier this week to announce that she passed her personal training exam after attending the Body Design University program in Atlanta, which means she's one step closer achieving her goal of becoming a fitness model and personal trainer! She explained that after she completes her internship, she will officially be a certified personal trainer.
"Little by little we are collecting goals and working towards what [makes] us happy!" the 30-year-old wrote in her caption. "The idea is to never give up, work hard, dream big and never let others make you think that you can't do it."
During last week's episode of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After, she introduced her hubby to her friends Michelle and Jimmy Lewin. Michelle enjoys an extremely successful career in fitness — she even came in at No. 4 on the Forbes list of Top Influencers of 2017 for the fitness industry. Pao was inspired by Michelle, and she hoped that Jimmy could help convince Russ that in order to make it big, she had to show just a little more skin — and it looks like he finally came around.
“I’m getting more into fitness and that requires [you] to be a little bit more revealing — something that my husband is not that happy [with],” Pao told Fox411 about her career change. “But he’s getting to the point [of] trying to understand my position and that I’m not doing it just because I want to expose myself like, ‘Look at me, I’m half-naked.’ No, I actually motivate people to change their lifestyle and that’s what I’m showing.”
