Everyone belongs in the gym!
Wednesday, August 27, 2014
No matter what size you are, you belong in the gym. It doesn't matter if you weigh 100 lbs or 500 lbs. Don't allow others to make you feel uncomfortable while working toward your goals! Unfortunately, there will always be jerks but if they have a problem with your presence at the gym, your body or anything about you, that us THEIR issue, not yours. The purpose of a gym is not just for fit people to stay fit or thin people to stay thin.
Luckily, there are some really cool people at the gym or people who at least are just there to focus on themselves.
Sometimes, the insensitivity of others gets to us even though we try not to allow it to do so. This is why so many people listen to music while out the gym or even while there out jogging. Turn up the music and get to sweating!
The only people who don't belong in the gym are those who waste their time focusing on others in a negative way.
This is not true just for the gym. It's true for the everywhere. You do not have to hide because of your size! You know you are getting healthier or attempting to. You don't have to justify your body to anyone because they don't know your story. That goes for people of ALL sizes, not just those of us on the heavier side. Why care so much about what a complete stranger says anyway? I have never met a perfect person, have you?
If you want to join a gym or go to a Zumba class or even just to the movies, go! Don't worry about the rude. As Taylor Swift's new single says: "Shake it off."
Have a good day!
