We hear it a lot, but it always helps to hear it as much as possible. It doesn’t matter what you look like! You are you, your genetics are totally unique (unless you are a twin), and that is ok!

Greg Everett, owner of Catalyst Athletics, has this to say about appearance:

“A convenient and unavoidable by-product of fitness is improved appearance. Interestingly enough, the inverse is not true. That is, if we train specifically for improved appearance, we may achieve it (although rarely is this the case); however, if we train for fitness, not only do we improve appearance, but we also improve our ability to function well in both daily tasks and our chosen recreation.”

Train for you. Train for health, train for fitness, train for your goals. The rest will fall into place. This is a hard lesson to learn, and something I have struggled with myself. But when you really start to understand it, the liberation is fantabulous.
