Health is more than a number
We all want to be healthy and happy in life, those two make the perfect duo. If you feel healthy, happiness will follow.
The problem is, what we know to be “healthy” is the complete opposite of what healthy actually is. Social media has intensified harmful body image aspirations, like the need to fit into size 4 pants, be incredibly sculpted and have a 6 pack. Social media tells us that if we don’t achieve these images, we’re not living up to their definition of “healthy”. We try to fast track our health and fitness journey to succeed in these extreme goals, and we have
forgotten about REAL HEALTH.
My perspective: focus on REAL HEALTH and you will find happiness in your own image.
I don’t work with a number when I train a client. I help clients develop positive and attainable goals that are realistic and fit their lifestyle by focusing on building sustainable habits that last a lifetime.
SO OFTEN people come to me and say they are eager to get started but they don’t know where to start because there is so much information out there that are completely false. So many gimmicks and marketing scams telling you what’s the best and fastest way to lose weight, but trust me, I know from experience the fast track does not always lead to long term success. As a trainer, I even felt the pressure to go against what I know actually works for long term success to try and give clients rapid results, although this can be very counter productive and slowly, overtime people go back to the drawing board, confused, disappointed and feeling like they’ve failed.
Now, ask yourself, is that worth it?
Next time you start your journey my advice to you is to always keep these three things in mind. Be patient, love yourself and know things will take time. So, love your body as is, while your working towards the bigger picture, your overall health.
Focus on small achievements daily that create big changes long-term. #beheathlybehappy #startsmallfinishbig
