However, Esparza was forced to defend her decision to wear makeup and stylish clothes to the gym after receiving backlash from social media users who viewed her videos.

"When you have the gym at 6 p.m. and the club at 7 p.m.," one user wrote, while another added, "A velour set and full-face [of] makeup?"

In a response video, Esparza addressed the negative comments, proudly stating, "I do how I want it."

After another user slammed Esparza, writing, "Why do you go the gym almost naked," she quickly hit back that she does it "to show men what they can't have, not to gain their attention!"

Several users flocked to Esparza's comments to also defend the fitness influencer and her choice of attire at the gym.

"Same people commenting this are the same people not even going to the gym," one user wrote, while another added, "you wear whatever you're comfortable in."

A third user chimed in, "If I would go to the gym, I would do the same," while a fourth user pointed out that dressing up to go to the gym can be a motivational factor to exercise. 

"Maybe if I try doing this I'll actually get my a-- in the gym, getting to the gym really is my biggest problem."
