Strength and the New Age Woman.
A change is occurring in the fitness industry. At first, there were a few, but now we are becoming many. The change is the amount of women who lift.
Women Who Lift
Body image in our modern society is a large part of our daily life.
We obsess over how we look and how we can look better. With unrealistic expectations placed on us to reach an unachievable look, a worrying 90% of women are unhappy with their body image.
This pressure causes a whole host of problems for people like eating disorders, substance abuse, depression, suicidal thoughts and general unhappiness.
1 in 3 women will experience ‘just a diet’ turning into pathological dieting, and almost all, 90%, feel a general unhappiness from negative body image.
At some point, you may have felt this way too?
It’s not fun and it’s stressful…. but all around the world women who dare to lift are changing that perception.
Women in weightlifting has been almost an oxymoron. It was incompatible with what has been expected of us in society. Women do not lift, we run, we do cardio to maintain a slender figure desired of us.
But all around the world women are beginning to change that perception. We are learning women can be strong, lift weights and be feminine.
We challenge the idea that we must be ‘skinny’ to be beautiful, the mainstream no longer tolerates the heroine chic image pushed on us by the fashion industry that has long governed our lives.
Because at its core this idea that we must be skinny to be feminine, is the opposite of health. We starve ourselves, avoid muscles, creating malnourished, weak bodies.
