What does make us fit…whats define our fitness…is this how we look, how we feel, move? How fast or strong we are? Funny. Did you ask yourself that? I did. Im 35 now…not a youngster anymore. Am I fit? One thing I know- never felt better…Face can’t lie- you wont hide your age, but there is the difference beetween one who excersise often, have a propper nutrition and the smoker, who drinks maybe only occasionally and closest his comming to training is when he passes the neibourhood gym getting his morning cofee latte with sugar and a chocolate cookie for breakfast. Our face, our skin reveals often HOW we live our life…Im not judgmental- far away from it. We all take our choices and have absolute right to love oir lifes as we want to live them but we got to pay the price of it some day. Im not saying that my life was flawless and bumpless..I was seriously overweight ( 120 kg) as a child and again in my late twentys…always trained though, but never succeed to achieve a form I would be proud of. Ate crap/looked like one/ smoked 20 cigarets a day/ smelled like a stump… Happy only when I could sit down with a cig in my mouth and relax…escape from life, problems…beer- absolutelly- big amounts.. Escape again…I wasn’t happy. Intoxicated and depressed( not the whole time but you get the picture;))
After my son was born- 10 years ago i quit smoking( big one huh?- I really LOVED smoking) gained even more weight but kept myself away from cigarets. Divorce- felt down even lower a period… And thats was enough!!! Dark side… Anger… Rage… Was angry on myself but blamed everything around me…. ENOUGH!!!! ……………….
5 years after. Yes it takes time. Weight 85 kg( quite lean in my standards), mobile, never sick, painless movement…. And HAPPY.. Doing what I love doing… Loving again( I thought I’ll never experience that again), loving people around and loving myself with all flaws and areas I have to focus on… Its so many angles of Fitness and I still dont have them all covered. Now think how boring would it be to actually HAVE them all covered;))) journey ends and you standing there being only genator of your fitness…fixing the details. BOOORING! No- lots of work awaits me, goals are out there smiling and calling me. Thats whats defines Fitness…how hungry you are to achieve what you desire…. You want to get ” stripes” on your ass? Get paper like thin skin and no fat? If its Fitness for you- Go and get it…. But for god sakes ENJOY every damn second of it because love and joy in your life is what we live for.
God.. Ita just pooring out of me…again. Being Fit doesnt only mean to look good- being Fit for me is to love your journey to achieve the goals- you Are Fit emotionally to deal with a heavy training and still love it.
For all my students- U guys ARE FIT… Screaming,roaring, crying sweat on the classes, havong problems going down the stairs home after the class… And on the way out – checking inn for my next class. You are true Fitness warriors. All of you!
