Today is Simone Biles’s birthday, and the gymnast and Olympic gold medalist is turning 21. She’s obviously still pretty young, but in such a short time, has already made history. With four Olympic gold medals, the Houston native set a record for most golds in women’s gymnastics at a single Games, all at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. She’s flipped her way into our hearts and managed to motivate us to get moving more. As as small as she is (only 4’9″), she is powerful and her tenacity and talent encourages everyone, big and small.

“It’s amazing that I can inspire little kids to know that you can be short or tall, and your body type doesn’t matter because you can do anything,” she told Women’s Health in 2016. “That’s what I love about how diverse our team is—we have such different body types, yet together we build the best team there is. I think we’re stronger together than individually.”

Even though it’s her 21st birthday, we have a feeling Biles will be spending her big day in the gym as opposed to the bar (but at some point, she will definitely be hanging with her boyfriend, Stacey!). In honor of her big day, check out a few of her fittest and most fabulous moments.

My morning routine: 1) Rise. 2) Grind. 3) Repeat. #partner @MattressFirm
