We are ALL fitness models! Read @caligirlgetsfit inspirational post! "If you think I'm vain for saying "fitness model," please read the caption. We are ALL fitness models! _ Last week, someone called me a "fitness model." I laughed and said girl, I ain't no fitness MODEL, I don't have a six-pack, I'm still working on growing a booty, and my gun show is more like a tiny toy gun. Pew pew! 🔫💪🏻 But then I thought about it more and decided I was all wrong. _ WE ARE ALL FITNESS MODELS. Yes, that means YOU too! No matter where you are in your journey, you are a fitness ROLE model who inspires people around you. We are all our own heroes who have made the choice to become our best selves. Fitness may look different on all of us, but we all inspire those around us. _ I want to introduce you to two of my role models. Brooke @excessmatters is my irl friend who made a commitment to herself to adopt a healthy lifestyle. So far, she has lost over 100 pounds, but more importantly she has lost a lot of her 🙌🏻 insecurities and gained ❤️ self-love and acceptance. Hailey @haileybettencourtfitness is real af, has come so far in her journey, and has stepped out of her comfort zone to compete in 👙 bikini competitions. She may physically look like a fitness model, but she's so much more than chiseled abs! In the process, she has learned discipline and dedication. _ You see, fitness looks different on all of us, but we are all fitness models. You don't need the abs or the buns of steel to be inspiring others, growing in your journey, and getting #strongereveryday . Even if you already have those things, your journey still isn't over; we are all changing and evolving. So if you are reading this, remember that you don't have to be the physical stereotype of "fitness" to be inspiring everyone around you. #youarefitspo#bodypositivity#bodypositive#caligirlgetsfit#confidence#loveyourself#confidence#happy#fitgirls#fitness "
A recent story on exercise and aging from the New York Times:
“It seems as if the decline in the cellular health of muscles associated with aging was “corrected” with exercise, especially if it was intense, says Dr. Sreekumaran Nair.” Sounds like our HIIT (high intensity interval training) is just what the doctor ordered. Give your cells a workout!
