The Role Model of Fitness Manifesto
More than four million girls around the world do not have a role model.[/pullquote]
In my short time in front of the camera, I’ve learned that being a fitness model shouldn’t only translate to taking pretty photos. It also doesn’t infer that the models that you may see on a magazine or on a stage necessarily walk the path that they prescribe.
Fitness in your life should not only appear in the form of a countdown to get ready for a special event, the fitness stage or solely for aesthetics alone. Everyone has the ability within themselves to be a role model of healthy behaviour – one that looks beyond how you look and digs deeper to reflect on how you feel and how you inspire those around you.
Living a healthy life should encompass more than just your time in the gym. Invest your time flexing your mental muscles by strengthening your mindset, reading and discovering your passions.
Educate others about what you know instead of judging people by how they look. Realize that fitness can’t be found in a quick fix or miracle solution and use your voice to tell your story.
If there is anything that I have learned during my journey through wellness is that everyone has a unique story to share. Having a six pack is great but means nothing if you have poor self esteem or spend all of your time trying to maintain it while ignoring everyone else around you.
I encourage everyone to strive to be a Role Model of Fitness in your everyday life and aim for more than just looking the part but embodying a Fit Mind, Body and Spirit.
