Hey all! I have accomplished a goal of mine... the goal was to not let my mind get in the way of lifting...aka mental block. I was always scared or never thought I could lift more that 360lbs on a leg press...well today I pressed 800lbs! I now know the true meaning of mind over matter. Your brain likes to play tricks on you or give you the excuses not to do something, justification so to speak. Well when you put fear and laziness aside and just say "Im gonna do it" then go out there and do it, do not stop...go full force, knowing you can and make it happen! These are the days that remind me why I work so hard in the gym. I do this to gain confidence in myself and to know that I can do something that I never thought I could do! Keep up the hard work because I am living proof that it pays off in the end!
Im a Certified Personal Trainer and I love it, I own my own business called Nu-U Fitness (www.nu-ufitness.com)How I Started Gettin my body into shape:
Well, honestly I had an eating disorder for about 2 1/2 years and decided one day that it was not healthy and I needed to fix it. I started working with a trainer my first year of college and was hooked!
I honestly want to inspire those that are having difficulties with eating disorders and their self image, because I know what that feels like, I have been there. And if you have someone you can look up to that has been through what you have been through then it makes it a little easier. I want to be here for those that need a shoulder to lean on and for the right direction and guidance because I never had "that someone" to help guide me and I took a couple of really bad turns and got very lost. Remember, God loves you and your body is His temple. Keep it healthy and strong because that is how He intended it to be.
