LOS ANGELES — During the COVID-19 pandemic, gyms and other exercise facilities were forced to close, leaving many like Mia Lind with limited options to work out.

One day, Lind decided to go out for a walk. Then she went again — but this time, she thought about her goals, accomplishments, and anything that would make her proud of herself.

Shortly after, the "Hot Girl Walk" took social media by storm, reaching 600 million views on TikTok.
