I’ve had some major insights this week, mainly revolving body image and confidence. For the longest time, I tried to look like someone I’m not. And I bet I’m not the only one who tried either. Naturally I did some research on why this is and here are some facts and startling statistics.
First, what is body image anyway? Body image is someone’s perception of what his/her body looks like and it’s an assumption of other people’s perceptions as well. Friends, families, societal pressures and pictures expressed in the media influence this image perception.

I remember the beginnings of my fitness career. I played the dangerous comparison game. I would admire my colleagues and fitness friends’ bodies and secretly wished I looked like them. When I would teach my group fitness classes, I would look at my self in that classroom mirror and feel horrified in the body I was in. I would attend workshops and trainings to better my craft and found myself deeply jealous of my classmates who had “the better bodies.”
Can you relate?
