Now I've got your attention!!!
I have just started a new Instagram page called 'therealpersonaltrainer'... It aims to highlight the intensity levels that Women (and Men) should be comfortable working at whilst training.
Currently the image portrayed to women is that they should be aspiring to be in the gym and have a full face of make up, hair down and done, the skimpiest outfits and tanned. Sexualising training. This puts an added pressure on those women who are self conscious and really puts a whole tribe of women off training altogether. The amount of clients I have that say they wont go to the gym as they are too big, or they wouldn't fit in with the other women that go there is frightening!!
Go on any social media and type in "women's fitness" and the images will speak for themselves.
The "This Girl Can' champaign started to highlight this issue, but I think its up to all of us to promote that it is ok and perfectly normal to be sweaty, muddy, hair scrapped back, shouting and completely comfortable to be how we want to be when we are exercising as we are trying to make changes to our bodies so that when we wear our everyday clothes and glad rags we feel body confident..... and NEW FLASH..... this takes hard work and massive effort!
Please feel free to follow this instagram account, try the workouts I post and then post to your stories including the @therealpersonaltrainer and we will repost them. If we all do our part we will improve women's and men's health!
