My Fitness Philosophy

I love to sweat. I know, I know – sweating is considered gross and unladylike. Who decided that, anyway? I disagree. I think sweating means you worked your butt off, you pushed yourself, you got one step closer to reaching another goal. But that’s just me.

I believe in working out because you want to, not because you have to. Your workout should be something you enjoy, and just because I enjoy running, elliptical-ing, and bike riding doesn’t mean everyone should do those things. We are individuals and our workouts are our own.

The #1 reason I workout is because it makes me feel great. I didn’t always feel that way, nor do I always feel like exercising – but with both exercise and life sometimes you have to fake it to make it to see what you are made of. Most likely, you’ll surprise yourself. I know that even when it is hard to get myself in in gear, I never regret a workout. Exercise endorphins are no joke!

There are quite a few benefits to incorporating regular exercise into your life.

Some Benefits of Regular Exercise

  • Reduces stress and anxiety
  • Improves sleep
  • Increases energy
  • Boosts self-esteem
  • Strengthens heart & cardiovascular system
  • Increases muscle tone & strength
  • Helps maintain or build bone mass

And of course, when combined with a diet of (mostly) healthy eats, exercise can help keep you looking fit and healthy!

There’s something out there for everyone – from yoga, to swimming, to walking the dog – you just need to find what works for you.
