“What will my blog be about?” I really struggled with it for awhile.
Then it hit me.
Fitness is a really great thing. But its purpose is misunderstood. It’s not for jocks, professional athletes, obsessed people, body builders or CrossFit Games athletes – it’s for everyone. It’s for you, it’s your birth right and you deserve to reap every single second of the benefits.
Let me tell you what fitness is not. It is not what you see on Instagram, on TV, in fashion magazines, what entertainment news says or what they look like in music videos. It is none of that. Fitness is not about eating boring food, counting your calories or starving yourself.
Fitness is about you being great. It is about you being the best you can. It is about finding the right type of training and nutrition that keeps you coming back. It is how you did a hard thing and inspired someone else to do the same.
It’s about the journey and the story of: you were “there” and now, you’re “here”.
And that’s the part I love; the stories associated with this are what really interest me. Whether it be a major transformational weight loss journey, a sudden boost in confidence, or a source of support to be leaned on during a time of pain or hardship. That’s what really inspires me.
Writing a fitness blog has been something I’ve wanted to do forever. But I never really knew what my focus would be. And in a sea of literally millions of fitness blogs, who would want to tune into mine? But now I’ve got a clear idea of where I’ll fit in and why what I’m saying is important enough to tune into. And it has been right in front of me for the last 10 years. The story of humans overcoming hardship, the process one goes through when rising up over the odds, and the best part- the pure bliss and joy of someone who truly believes in themselves. It’s contagious. I love it and I want to be around it all the time.
People getting better – that’s my life’s work.
My fitness blog will be about you.
Thank you – person changing life – for the inspiration.
Ps. In the comments section below, please tell me about what fitness means to you. I’d love to hear about it.
