Even Dancing With The Stars pros have bad mental health days. Season 28 champion Alan Bersten recently opened up to fans about his own personal journey on Instagram. The pro dancer posted about how poorly he felt at the beginning of the year and how he decided to make some changes. Over the past seven months, Alan has been hard at work in the gym and it really shows. He posted a before and after shot documenting his progress.
Alan Bersten worked hard to turn his life around for the better
Most of us have battled mental health issues over the past two years, so many fans really resonated with Alan’s message.
“A few months ago I made the decision to change my life for the better. What has been my biggest takeaway? Mental strength and courage can help you accomplish any goal,” the dancer began.
“Being completely transparent, I wanted to share these before and after photos – not to be vain, but to hopefully relate to at least one of you and remind you that WE ALL go through things. I made a choice to get healthier. Not just look better, but to feel better mentally and physically.”
Alan went on to say that he felt “sluggish” and unhappy with his body, so he decided to make some changes. After some careful dieting and exercise, he’s now very happy with his appearance.

But Alan wants fans to know it’s not just about the shirtless photos
Plenty of fans enjoyed the shirtless photos, but Alan Bersten wants to emphasize there is a deeper message here.
“So yes this happens to be a shirtless post, but this is more about how you can truly achieve anything your mind wants. Anyone out there who’s working on change whether it be your body, your mind, your career, or whatever you can imagine. Just know that with consistency, hard work, dedication, and believing in yourself, everything is possible. There are no limits we cannot surpass. We are truly limitless,” Alan concluded his post.
