The Arnold Sports Festival was this weekend in Columbus, Ohio!
There were so many events going on this weekend, and a HUGE expo. I went to the expo (it was PACKED.. don’t go mid-afternoon saturday!). The expo has booths for supplement companies, fitness magazines, workout clothes, and so much more!
It’s inspiring for me to see other people living healthy lives. Yes, many take it to the extreme, but these people are motivated and are making something of themselves! Many of them genuinely care about educating you about health.
It’s sad there is a stereotype that people in the fitness industry are not as smart as those in other professions. There are many professionals in the fitness industry who have degrees and some even have PH.D’s. Not only do they have intellectual knowledge, they are incredibly motivated, driven, and have a passion for sharing their knowledge with others!
Maybe I’m defending myself, because I know one day my work will affect this industry. I would love to take what I’ve learned over the years and share my knowledge with those needing inspiration!
I have a bachelor’s degree, I will have a master’s, and maybe I’ll even have a PH.D. I have intellectual knowledge, I have body knowledge, I have more discipline, motivation, drive,and passion than most people my age.. most people period! I care about my own health, and I care about telling YOU how you can make yours better.
So- try to inspire the people around you by your own healthy habits. Saying “I have to workout” or “no” to a dessert is a testament to the healthy lifestyle. No doubt, you’ll find people can get pretty annoyed with you, but at the same time- they’re learning from you. Be a witness to your friends, family, boyfriend, girlfriend, coworkers.. even strangers at the grocery store.
We NEED more people who are promoting health. The habits you have today affect your family, your friends, your children, and your future children.. If you want to be a healthy person, start living like it now. Don’t wait for the “right” time when things start to slow down in school, at work, or with your family. Be it now and never look back!
