I had a really interesting conversation with the boy about why I train last night.
As a feminist and a strong woman, the "made for social media answer", is "I train for myself, I train to get fitter and stronger and more powerful."
I train for me right?!
The truth is, there are many reasons why I train and I am not ashamed that one of those reasons is that I want to look good naked and feel good in a pair of jeans. I am totally okay with that. I am not afraid to get dirty, sweaty and work hard but I am also not afraid to admit, that when I take my clothes off, I want the boy to be thinking "holy shit, she looks hot!", that's natural and I think sometimes we get so caught up in this powerful and strong fitness image that we forget that's it's okay to have a sexuality and want to be attractive to others. Its okay to want that. That of course is not the singular reason I train. I enjoy training, I enjoy the challenge and the feeling of being strong gives me confidence but yeah, I want to look good too.
What are your thoughts?
Why do you train?
