I was picking up something at shoppers before heading home and a young girl who was in the line was staring at me all wide eyed and said to her stepmom (A client of mine) “wow that lady looks really strong. I bet if she flexed her arm would be like this“ reaching up as high as she could with her hand away overhead. You could see the excitement in her eyes. Moments like these really make me smile inside. Because to me showing young girls that you can take up space and be strong or whatever you want means a lot to me. I have worked with many young girls and women over the course of my life. And sadly so often I see women who are afraid to take up space, they mold into into what they think is acceptable in order to fit in. Even as an adult I’ve been in numerous situations where I’ve been pushed out as I refused to mold into the group.
One of my favourites that I’m consistently asked is Oh wow you don’t really want to get bigger do you? Fuck yeah I do!
Because I’m going to take up space. I’m not living for you or your ideals
Because to me this is sexy. Because I love training and everything that comes with it.
If there’s one piece of advice I can give to any young girl or woman its to NEVER make yourself smaller to make others more comfortable. Be who YOU are. Be UNIQUE the world needs people to stop pretending and start living!
