I first got into fitness in 2013. A friend invited me to run 10km without me realizing how far it was. I said yes, but when I learned that the run would stretch 6 miles, I joined a gym and got a personal trainer. Before this, the lack of exercise had put a few extra pounds on me. I used to be bullied at school, and that affected my self-confidence. But, with the right people helping me on my fitness journey, I started improving my self-esteem.
It’s a common myth that exercise is pure hard work and no fun. You know what? I enjoy the results I get from exercise.
I ran marathons after marathons, even joining ultra-marathons where I got to run over 27 miles. As I covered more distance, I got to experience running over different terrains. My farthest run was 100 miles within 29 hours.
I moved away from where I was first living. Even though I kept running, I took my nutrition for granted, and I was back to my original weight. I knew I needed to take action. I found a gym and hired a personal trainer who reignited my passion for exercise. Under this person’s guidance, I was re-educated on proper eating, and I started to lose weight. I was so amazed by the results. Even my friends and family could not believe how good and healthy I looked.
This was when I realized I wanted to share with others what has been shared to me. If I can do it, then others can reach their fitness goals, too, with proper guidance. I took a gym instructor and personal trainer courses where I learned new ways to make exercise fun and effective. I also took up other training-specific courses like spin, boxing, and core. I started taking gym classes and even began my own classes in my local village.
This is how I got into leading a healthier lifestyle. If I can do it, so can you! Let’s have a fun-filled exercise together anywhere convenient
