Every BODY Is A Beach BODY

By July 10, 2018Fitness
Do you remember this fitness ad that made headlines a few years ago?
 
“Are You Beach Body Ready?”… What does that even mean? As far as we are concerned, if you have a swimsuit on… and you are at the beach (or the pool, or the lake)… YOU HAVE A BEACH BODY.

These types of ads have been fairly common in the fitness industry. They usually start popping up around spring break. Great looking people in swimsuits promoting the latest in weight loss supplements and gym memberships. Hopefully some people look at these ads and feel motivated. Looking at someone else and setting a positive realistic goal for yourself CAN be really good.

For other people though, these types of messages (which are everywhere now, not just on fitness billboards) serve as a detractor from their own personal body image. Looking at someone else and setting unrealistic expectations for yourself CAN be really unhealthy. You are reminded of what you don’t have, what you don’t look like, and you feel less because of it. 

Regardless of what any advertisement, music video, magazine cover, or instagram (this is 2018, definitely had to include that one) might be telling you, our hope is that you realize that who you are is already GREAT. You might not be at your goal weight. You might not have a six pack. And that is OKAY. Don’t let that stop you from having fun this summer. Put on that swimsuit. Go to the pool (or the beach #blessed). Enjoy and embrace who you are TODAY!

Then come see us in the gym and work hard to be an even better version of yourself TOMORROW!

Throughout the month of July, we are going to be sharing several different tips and workouts from a variety of people including other members, group exercise instructors, and personal trainers, that will help you tone and strengthen your core. Again, we are not saying you have to have a flat stomach or washboard abs to wear a swimsuit, but maybe that is one your goals this summer. Maybe we can help get you there. We are a gym. Chances are if you are reading this, you are a member of our gym. You have fitness goals and aspirations. We aren’t here to tell you what those should be, we are just trying to help you achieve them.

Never forget that fitness is for every BODY.
