We're at newsletter 50!
If you've been here the whole time, I'm truly grateful. I've been thinking a ton about the fitness journey, who I serve best, and the results I bring to the table.
Because of that, I wanted to share the reason I train, and what inspire growth means to me.
Where I started
I wasn't always active. Growing up, I hated sports because I sucked at them. I didn't grow up strong, and eating "healthy" wasn't really a thing in my family.
I would describe myself as lazy. A person who chose comfort over goals. I just never really thought about the future much until I discovered fitness.
When I started strength training, I didn't have specific goals like losing a ton of weight, or squatting a certain amount. I just wanted to get "fitter?," (emphasis on that question mark.) and working out was something I thought I was supposed to do.
As I got further along, I started learning more about what I enjoyed, and where I wanted to go with my goals. I wanted to deadlift 300lbs, and be able to do 50 burpees without stopping. 😂 The point is, training led me to figure out what I wanted to do. Then I had to do the work to get there.
Why I train
For me, fitness was a way to create myself.
Fitness helped me build habits that aligned with my goals.
I gained a positive mindset based on learning and improving.
I learned how to push through tough challenges.
I learned that it's okay to be uncomfortable.
Fitness taught me a lot about myself, and it made me a better person overall. I'm by no means perfect with it, but it's that journey of growth that I wanted to share and hopefully inspire you with. 🙏🏾
With that I ask, why do you train?
And if you don't train yet, what's holding you back?
Thanks for reading the Weekly #50!
