The Russian beauty earned a pretty bad reputation as a gold digger on TLC’s 90 Day Fiancé franchise, but Anfisa Nava (née Arkhipchenko) has proven to be independent and driven to succeed. After announcing that she was walking away from the reality show in 2018, the former TV personality has gone on to achieve her fitness dreams by entering in bodybuilding competitions and winning multiple prizes. Now, she’s got an exciting new business venture on the horizon!
Anfisa, 24, took to Instagram on Tuesday, November 26, to reveal that she is now a certified personal trainer after taking the NASM exam.
“Fitness has completely changed my life and became a huge part of it and I’m so excited to now be able to help all of you achieve your fitness goals,” the former reality star wrote, adding how she felt compelled to get the training she needed before assisting others.
“I want to be a good representation of the fitness community and do it the right way, instead of trying to make a quick buck off people,” the brunette bombshell continued. “Now I’m just figuring out the technical side of it and very soon I will launch my very own workout programs.”
While we’re at it, let’s also get some other misconceptions about Anfisa set straight.
Was Anfisa a professional gold digger?
The former 90DF star previously revealed the real reason why she didn’t get a job when she came to the United States to marry Jorge Nava. Jorge actually didn’t want Anfisa to work because he wanted to take care of her, but he claims that she took a secret job while they were separated. During the 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After tell-all in 2017, Jorge hinted at Anfisa’s shady work history — leading fans to wonder what she does for a living.
While filming the special, Anfisa was grilled by her co-stars — especially Paola Mayfield and Loren Brovarnik. Paola asked if Anfisa attended the Russia Gold Digger Academy, and Loren confronted her while they sat across from each other on stage.
Loren asked Anfisa if another man with more money came along, would she leave Jorge for him and she was extremely honest. “It depends on how that other man treats me,” Anfisa said. Loren lost her temper and called Anfisa a “bitch” and a “gold digger.”
Jorge said Anfisa might not have found honest work during their split.
Things between Jorge and Anfisa ended on bad terms during Season 2 of the series, and when they reunited with each other at the tell-all, he was extremely cold towards his wife. He accused her of cheating and he even went as far as alluding that Anfisa might be a stripper, a prostitute, a dancer, a porn star, or something of that nature.
“I am reluctant to say,” he said. “It’s embarrassing to me. I feel like it’s degrading to have a wife that does a certain thing for a living.” He never exactly said what is was that Anfisa does or did for a living — but he said when he found out, he went to her place of work and he allegedly saw her in action.
What was Anfisa’s job in Russia?
While Jorge and Anfisa previously said that they met on Facebook, that might not necessarily be true. Former reality TV star and podcaster Stevie Ryan — who passed away in July — said that Jorge allegedly admitted that Anfisa used to work as a cam girl and they met on one of her websites.
What is Anfisa’s job in America?
Nowadays, it looks like she’s focused on taking her health and wellness skills to the next level while working as a personal trainer and fans couldn’t be more pumped about getting in shape with the help of Anfisa.
“I’ll be even more motivated to start working out on a schedule with your launch of programs,” one commented.
We can’t wait!
