I am out for sushi and wine with my best friend tonight and I made the comment about how I think it’s great when women feel the need to work out to get a lean shaped body. I said, “But that’s just me. My bubble, my world, is filled with very positive body talk when it comes to women.” What I meant was, everything from the people I hang out with daily to post on my Facebook feed all celebrate a woman’s body for what it can accomplish, what it is capable of.
My environment shapes my outlook on how I feel about my own body and those of the women around me. Because I’m a personal trainer you might think I’m always looking around and judging people for what they look like, what they’re eating, what they’re doing or not doing. This couldn’t be further from the truth.
