Let’s talk about CHANGE. Such a simple word that can carry stress and NEGATIVE feelings for so many women. In an attempt to make someone feel better or build confidence, I often hear women saying to each other – ‘you don’t need to change’….but sometimes that can do more harm than good.⁣

Telling someone “you don’t need to change” when you have absolutely NO idea how they are feeling, could actually be more damaging than supportive. Some women WANT to change more than anything, why not just say “I’ll be there for you”?!⁣

As a trainer talking to a new client, the FIRST thing I want to ask you is ”how do YOU currently FEEL about yourself”. Some women don’t FEEL good or may be in a negative situation that requires change! This is why it’s always important to know people’s stories before you comment on their lifestyle or needs. Personal training is of course personal and so should our approach be to helping people as we are each unique and overcoming unique difficulties in life.⁣

Change can be scary and sometimes uncomfortable BUT change can also be what pushes us to grow beyond our comfort zone and challenge ourselves. As a community I believe it is SO important for us to understand that change can be positive and know when to ENCOURAGE it 🙌🏽.⁣

I am by no means suggesting everyone needs change BUT what I am saying is to the women who FEEL they need change, that WANT it and are READY, don’t let anyone’s thoughts or comments limit you from taking that first step. You are unstoppable 💪🏽!⁣
