A fitness model and social media influencer is gaining a lot of appreciation from all over the internet, thanks to her bravery and presence of mind. The woman is being hailed on the internet for bravely fighting off a man who tried to molest her inside a gym.

Now, the video of the whole incident is going viral on social media. The woman has been identified as Nashali Alma, 24. 

The video starts with Nashali working out in a gym at the Inwood Park Apartment Complex in Tampa, Florida, US. Meanwhile, the accused identified as Xavier Thomas-Jones arrives at the gym and stands outside.

Thinking he might have come to the gym, Nashali unlocks the door for him to enter and carries on with her workout. But, after a short while, the perpetrator, comes towards her and attempts to molest her.

Despite protest, the accused tries to put Nashali to the ground. But, the brave lady puts up a fight and starts punching him on his face. After some time, the assailant finally gives up in the face of her bravery.

Sharing her story through a video posted on Instagram by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, Nashali said, “As soon as he was approaching me, I pushed him. I said, bro WTF are you doing? Get away from me. Stop trying to touch me. He started chasing me around the bench, and we ended up on the other side of the gym.”

“My advice would be to never give up. My parents have always told me in life, to never give up on anything, and that’s one thing I always kept in mind when I was fighting him,” Nashali added.
