Exercise unleashes the confidence we all possess.
Before I began exercising, I was as timid as a titmouse. It seemed I was intimidated by just about everything and everyone. Oh, I didn’t come off that way. I had my pride, but that didn’t protect me from the pain of rejection or recrimination that seemed to abound in my youth.
It’s true; before I began exercising I lacked the confidence that I possess today. It wasn’t uncommon for me to shy away from activities because of something that someone had said to me. Much less, tacking some challenge that required me to challenge another’s opinion. Like I said, I was terribly timid.
All of that changed when I started exercising regularly. Now I move gracefully across a room, aware that others may notice me, but confident in my own skin. There is a marked difference in the way that I feel. It has been such a marvelous change for me that it inspires me to tell other ladies how exercise can help them, too.
As a personal fitness trainer, specializing in women’s fitness, my focus is on helping women achieve their goals. I urge the women that I meet to participate in a regular exercise program and eat a nutrient rich diet that is low in saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium and sugar. Not only will this help them to lose weight, it can help to correct hormonal imbalances as well.
Changes in hormone levels can affect weight, energy, and mood. Your diet along with a regular exercise program can improve your health, both physically and mentally. When it comes to finding confidence, there is something about exercising and the feeling of accomplishment that accompanies a good workout.
Even if I am filled with dread about completing an exercise routine, spending time thinking of the number of tasks I need to tackle during the day. I am filled with confidence once I my workout is completed. Perhaps that’s because we are our own biggest obstacles. Once we stand up to our own perpetuated priorities, we gain even more power and confidence.
Today, I am tough as a tiger when I need to be strong. Maybe the tiger was always within me, but exercise was the key that unleashed the toughness and confidence that I now possess.
