By placing fitness under the umbrella of self-care rather than limiting it strictly to gym time or an aesthetic focus, we can broaden the view of what it means to be healthy. This ultimately allows for fitness becoming a sustainable lifestyle rather than something to abandon once a goal is reached.
I strive for my clients to find intrinsic motivation for exercise. Forget working out just for weight loss or to erase a weekend of junk food—this is a short-term way of thinking solution that won’t carry us through once goals are reached. Looking at fitness as more than a hard hour on a cardio machine but as something to fuel your soul and move your body each day will lead to a life time of health.
I want each one of my clients to leave DeBusk Training with the knowledge and tools to succeed independently. I would love to teach you how to put together a full body workout to do in your living room, in a gym or at the park. There are so many different ways to move and strengthen your body, and the environment is rarely prohibitive if you’ve got a little creativity and some basic fitness knowledge up your sleeve. I will always be around to cheer you on and provide additional support as needed, but I want my clients to have the confidence to maintain their fitness well after they’ve finished with me.
Body positivity is simply learning to love and appreciate your body for what it can do. It’s fundamental to making fitness a part of a well-balanced life, and it’s one of the main principles behind self-care. Again, I won’t get all mushy and emotional with you, but I will tell you that I believe you are worthy and deserving of self-respect.
