Fitness influencer and YouTuber Chloe Ting has reacted to a hate expose called ‘The Scoop on Chloe Ting’, debunking all the negative claims about her.
When the world entered lockdown due to Covid-19, lots of people were unable to go to gyms, fitness classes or exercise more than once a day outside. As a result, online fitness routines became hugely popular.
One of the biggest fitness plans quickly became Chloe Ting, who went viral worldwide for her popular ‘2-week shred‘. But even though most people loved her workouts, she still got loads of hate.
And in a recent YouTube video, she’s had to fight back against the haters and slam some of the defamatory comments made against her.
Who is Chloe Ting?
Chloe Ting is a fitness enthusiast, personal trainer, YouTuber and social media star.
The 34-year-old was born in Brunei but now lives in Melbourne Australia, and has amounted a huge 13.5 million subscribers on YouTube and 2.6 million on Instagram.
She went viral in early 2020 due to her ‘2-week shred‘, a fitness challenge which claims to be able to give you abs in just two weeks.
Chloe Ting responds to hate on YouTube
The YouTuber often stays out of any influencer drama, keeping her channel solely about fitness. However, she posted an unusual video to her channel yesterday (August 11th) in which she addressed the hate she’s been getting.
She first speaks about one specific hater who she claims created “62 Instagram stories about me” titled “The Scoop on Chloe Ting” in a bid to expose the fitness YouTuber. She says that usually she would simply just ignore it, but this one really angered her because it was so defamatory and untrue.
The hater claims that Chloe Ting is “fuelling eating disorders and body dysmorphia”. She then speaks to a clinical psychologist who specialises in body dysmorphia, who argued that Chloe has always been cautious to ensure that her content isn’t triggering.
She also gets hate from people who doubt the effectiveness of her nutrition videos. However, she slams back by speaking to a dietician who argues that eating chocolate regularly can be good as long as you have other nutritional foods in your diet too. She even applauds Chloe for “promoting a generally balanced approach to food and for normalising eating these often demonised foods”.
The truth on Chloe Ting
As someone who regularly does Chloe Ting’s YouTube workouts, I can confirm that they are completely rewarding and do actually work.
Chloe never claimed that the workouts would give you abs in two weeks, and this was a common misconception. Some people were able to get abs from the workout plan but this highly depends on other factors too such as diet and lifestyle.
Her workout videos are designed to be a medium intensity and good for beginners, something that she often stresses throughout. If you’re looking for a high-intensity workout that’s going to burn 1,000 calories in one session, Chloe Ting won’t be the workout plan for you.
But if you want to do a quick workout that’ll make you break a sweat and leave you feeling rewarded without needing any equipment, then it’s perfect. And you can even do multiple videos consecutively to give yourself a longer workout.
