Why is Fitness so Stressful?


So why does it seem like fitness can be so stressful?

Is it because we put so much pressure on ourselves to look a certain way?

Is it because we are striving to compete or look like the person beside of us in the gym?

As women I think we get so caught up in Fitness and how we should look that we forget the true benefits and reasoning behind healthy lifestyle/fitness. Social media has created this look of what Fitness should look like. We find ourselves competing with others versus just simply having fun or the fellowship with others.


The What if’s?

What happens if I don’t get my run in? What happens if I don’t do that 5k? What happens if I didn’t get to the gym? So what happens….well we regroup, we do something else, we do what we can.

Let Go of the STRESS

Stop stressing on this thing called the Right Fitness. There is no such thing as the right fitness. There is a such thing as Fitness for everyone, getting out and moving, doing something everyday. So whatever that may look like for you…do it. Whatever may inspire you to go out and move…do it. Whatever fitness level you may be on…Keep doing what you are doing. Don’t ever feel like you have to do certain activities to be classified as a fit person. When you get up off the couch each and everyday and do something that gets your heart pumping and that makes you feel GREAT…that is when you have truly found fitness for you.


Always remember.. Fitness is not a destination it is a way of Life. Engage in fitness to become a happier person, not a stressed out person. Do it for you…No one else but you.




With love,
