i often get asked
if the pressure feels high in the fitness space to obtain and maintain a specific body type.
early in my career—this answer was a hell yes.
it took my own healing and unraveling for me to understand that the most impactful thing I can do as a leader of a space this vulnerable is to show up in my real body.
the body that teaches pure barre
drinks celery juice
and loves my peloton.
but also the body that orders takeout
spends days in my pjs laughing with my lover
and lives for the exhilaration of nothingness.
some workouts feel effortless
and others my body needs modifications and gentleness and honoring that has become just as special.
i have days when I feel like superwoman
and plenty of others when I speak out of turn or let my hormones take the driver’s seat.
tuning into my body
committing to understanding it
has been the most honest journey of my life.
but when I started supporting instead of resisting—
I was met with ease
and while being a business owner has multiple pressure points—
having a “perfect” body isn’t one of them.
because I want my clients
my future babies
and women everywhere
to trust that every part of you is equally worthy
and no standard that the media tries to create is worth the joy you will sacrifice trying to achieve it.
so in case you needed to hear this today—
the you who drinks green juice on her way to yoga is just as sexy as the you who eats noodles in her pjs
please let both sides have their moment
because the best life
is a balanced one.
