Don’t follow conventional stereotypes when it comes to women in health & fitness, stand tall, stand proud, don’t wait for permission off anyone to do what you love.
What are the general stereotypes?
When I mean stereotypes, I am talking about how woman should stick to the cardio equipment, Zumba, bums & tums classes or stick to the special designated area in the gym that has the multi-coloured weights.
Well, screw that…
I have plenty of female clients that can rock up to the gym and own the squat rack, bicep curl more than guys, punch the crap out of a punch bag showing that women can do whatever they want in the gym and shouldn’t feel judged, mocked or embarrassed.
Still today, even though it is becoming more and more popular for women to start resistance training and to make sure they do there squats and embrace the curves that muscle definition has to offer too many hang off the opinion, the gratification of others either from friends, boyfriends, husbands etc.
Again, screw that…
Feel confident in whatever you’re doing. I don’t care if that means coming in the brightest, most colourful leggings and grunting better than Sharapova whilst lifting, embrace it! However, if you know what you want to achieve but don’t feel confident in knowing how to achieve it then ask for help. But it is still down to you to take that on board and put that into action.
Take away points:
- Before you start make sure you have a true, honest vision of what you are working towards
- Opinions are like faces; everyone has one but doesn’t mean you should take notice.
- Embrace what you are doing, enjoy it, let it empower you as you’re probably going to be doing this for the rest of your life.
- If you don’t know where to start, ask for help.
- Be your own version of Wonder Woman
