Katelyn Runck is showing off her incredible physique and giving her followers a bit of inspiration in doing so.

The fitness model took to Instagram on Sunday to share a revealing shot of herself wearing a white lace top that gave her 2.1 million followers an up-close glimpse of her washboard abs. Runck shared an inspirational message in the caption, telling her followers that they need to learn to love themselves. She then asked for some help in deciding which of the three professionally shot photos and one raw video from the shoot fans liked the best — a choice that was difficult for many of them.

Others ignored the question to heap some praise on Runck for the snaps and the incredible physique she showed off in them.

“Art in motion. You’ve sculpted a masterpiece with your hard work and dedication,” one fan gushed.

“Just incredible beauty and your every post makes my day.”

“An absolute perfection,” another wrote.

While it’s not exactly clear when the photo shoot took place, the images appeared to show that Runck has been able to avoid the fitness slide during quarantine that many others have suffered. Her skimpy top showed off her washboard abs and well-toned arms and legs.

Runck has shown off the same fit body in other recent snaps, sometimes exchanging the more revealing attire for form-fitting dresses. But whatever she happens to wear, the model has shown that she’s working hard to stay in top shape.

The series of photos pulled a bit of double duty for Runck, who also used them to promote her partnership with the clothing company Dolls Kill. Runck has done some work promoting the company’s revealing outfits, and she tagged them in the post shared on Sunday as well as other recent photo shoots shared on her social media page.

The pictures prompted some inquiries among commenters about the ensemble, leading the model to direct them back to the company’s official Instagram page for a bit of further promotion.

The popularity of the pictures shows the end of a long journey for Runck, who has been open about her unusual path to Instagram stardom. On her personal website, Runck explained that she had originally signed with a traditional modeling firm but fell into unhealthy habits and later moved back home to open a wellness and medical aesthetic skin care clinic. She eventually fell in love with competition, competing in bodybuilding contests.
