I have an autoimmune disorder that I was told would severely limit my physical capabilities. Determined not to be a statistic, I started eating clean and doing yoga. Later I started boxing and then fell in love with the weight room. I am off every medication (I was up to 34 pills a day at one point) and manage my condition completely through fitness and healthy eating. More than that, I turned my passion into a career and began training several years ago after finishing school!
Why I Love it
Yesterday as a client was doing a beginner ab exercise and expressing how hard it was, I showed her a different version of it that took me well over a year to master and was a goal for a long time for me, and she remarked, "Do you ever get to a point where there's nothing left? No more goals?".
No, was my answer, and our conversation after reminded me why I love fitness - because there's no limit. In so many different aspects of life there's a ceiling, a place where you top out and can't go higher. Fitness isn't like that. There's always a new goal, a higher jump, a bigger weight, more reps - and on top of that, there's so many avenues. Great at yoga? Try weights. Lift a ton? Try running. It's endless. And I love it for that. I love that at no point in my life will it ever be enough, there will always be more I can do, more I can aim for, more I can expect out of myself.
