That moment you realized you’ve gained 20lbs since you started weight training about 10+ years ago.😮😮
Crazy enough, before I became a personal trainer in 2008, I was nervous about lifting weights.
I grew up naturally slim with an athletic build (though I had lost a little weight in the pic on the left… let’s blame my limited grad school budget).
I was scared that lifting weights would make me “too muscular” or “bulky” like some women still believe (I was a cardio queen 🏃🏾♀️).
When I became a trainer, I started weightlifting 🏋🏾♀️ with other trainers during our staff meetings.
My fears subsided when I started seeing how my muscles shaped my body, without any bulk.
Now, I lift weights about 4 days a week and love it!
Crazy how we can let our fears of the unknown hold us back from becoming better.
What crazy fear are you holding onto this week?
What if your best life is on the other side of it? 🤔
