Why it’s important to you
Today’s day and age demands you to be ‘perfect’
But what is perfect? Perfect is what we as society have defined as perfect – the heroine chic look glorified by the modelling industry neither helps majority of women feel confident or is a realistic expectation of what every single woman should look like.
Studies have shown that 90% of women have some body confident issue in their lifetime and majority will feel insecure, unhappy and have low self esteem because of low body confidence. Not to mention the myriad of eating disorders and body dysmorphia we see in todays society in girls who haven’t even hit puberty yet!
So how to do you go against the grain and learn to be happy with your body and yourself?
One answer that many women are turning to is CrossFit.
4 ways CrossFit is changing body image perception in women:
1. CrossFit breaks away from what society demands of women – to stop nourishing and moving your body even squander your intelligence for a specific aesthetic. Of course this is going to drag down your confidence. You don’t need society to tell you how to look to feel good. Real confidence and self-love come from within.It’s the feats that women are achieving in the gym which are against what society demands of them (literally to be skinny) that creates confidence in women.
2. CrossFit gym that create confidence within women. Lifting weights, running, jumping, gymnastics are all challenging but extremely rewarding. CrossFit allows women to see their improvements which increases their confidence which makes them happy.
3. CrossFit teaches you how to move properly and be strong. With a 60% participation rate, women are getting stronger and not just ‘going for a run’. Lift, jump, climb, do things that challenge you and challenge what society demands of you, why spend your whole life looking in the mirror and hating what you see, what’s the point, why not love what you see and be proud of what you can achieve?
4. CrossFit creates a community of women. These women workout beside you and are dedicated to helping you achieve your goals. It’s the community and love of each other which sees you preform at your best!
Move away from what society demands of you and do what your body, your health and your mind demand of you to be fulfilled, self confident and ultimately happy.
