A Step Towards Healthy Body Image at Fit For Living
I read a great quote recently.
“Developing a healthy self-image is to balance that fine line of recognizing your worth regardless of how you look, still pushing yourself to look your best, but understanding looks aren’t everything.”
Body image is something that many are self-conscious about. Body image is such a large part of how society illustrates a “healthy, happy lifestyle” and being a young women myself, I understand and can assure you that so many women, men even, have looked in the mirror and at some point in their lives and had a pessimistic perspective on their body. This is essentially brought on by the unrealistic body image society tries to full fill our minds with.
Reality is, everybody’s different, simple as that. You can’t judge somebody because they may not appear as muscular or as defined or as fit as you, because the reality is, everyone’s different, mentally and physically. Fit For Living is a gym that aims to provide a welcoming environment that allows everyone to feel comfortable and confident with who they are and what they look like. Fit For living is a unique gym that has no mirrors.
Yep, that’s right. No mirrors.
This is a great advantage because so many people wanting to get healthier and stronger tend to get caught up with how they currently look, usually making them self-conscious, unmotivated, even embarrassed. So removing the mirrors allows everyone to relax, stop beating themselves up about their current appearance and focus on enjoying the progress of becoming a healthier more positive human being.
It’s one of the reasons Fit For Living has been ranked in Top 3 Best Gym in Geelong for successive years. It’s the unique and refreshing approach to complete health and correct perspective on physique.
If healthy self-image is indeed about “balancing that fine line of recognising your worth regardless of how you look, still pushing yourself to look your best, but understanding looks aren’t everything”, then getting rid of the mirrors isn’t a bad place to start.
