“What does that even mean?” you may be wondering.
What does it mean to Lift Like a Girl and, more importantly, how can it benefit you?
Let’s begin with an important statement: Lifting Like a Girl is about way more than working out. It’s about more than strength training and eating well.
It’s ultimately about doing those things, but for the purpose of being the strongest, most awesome version of yourself.
Lifting Like a Girl is about empowering; it’s about becoming the best version of yourself. Health and fitness should reduce your stress, build you up, and make your life better. It should show you the incredible things your body can do, and then leave you wanting to discover what else it is capable of.
Health and fitness is about eating well, simply. Not dieting. Not avoiding foods (because that leads to obsessive, disordered, and binge eating habits). Not feeling guilty when you indulge in your favorite dessert (or pizza, or whatever the hell you love).
Health and fitness is not about “earning your food” or punishing yourself for eating. It’s about moving your body in ways you enjoy. Getting stronger, and becoming more awesome.
As you can see, the Lift Like a Girl approach to fitness is much different than most other methods. And that’s a very good thing.
Below are articles that reveal the true heart of what it means to Lift Like a Girl so you can begin your new, and fun, journey to becoming the most awesome version of yourself.
