Hello there! As a woman with an interest in fitness, there are MANY phrases I wish people would stop saying. Most of the time I know that it is unintentional and people don’t really mean any offense, but let’s face it, this is too funny not to share with you.
So, here’s a fun article highlighting some phrases you should never say to a fitness girl. Remember, laughter is the best medicine, and it’s important to be mindful of our words and encourage each other!
“Are you sure you need to lift that heavy?”
Sure, it’s tempting to underestimate her strength, but trust me, she’s got this! Fitness girls have been putting in the effort to build their strength, and they love a good challenge.
“You are going to get bulky!”
Newsflash: Gaining muscle is a journey that requires serious dedication and focused training. Rather than focusing on looks, let’s celebrate their dedication to building a strong and healthy body. Also… we do what we want.
“You must eat tiny portions!”
Fitness girls know the importance of nourishing their bodies with a balanced diet. So, no, they’re not just munching on carrots all day. They enjoy their food and indulge in treats in moderation.
“Why do you even work out? You’re already in great shape!”
Fitness is a lifestyle, not just a means to an end. These women work out to challenge themselves, improve their mental and physical well-being, and set new goals. Being in great shape is just an awesome side effect. So, yes, having a nice body is great but performing at the gym every day is more uplifting.
“Don’t you ever take a break?”
Yes, they do take rest days! It’s crucial for recovery and preventing injuries. They understand the importance of balance and know when it’s time to recharge their bodies and minds.
“You’re so lucky to be naturally fit!”
Fitness is not solely determined by genetics. It takes consistent effort, discipline, and hard work. Complimenting their dedication and determination will go a long way.
“Do you ever eat junk food?”
Yes, they do enjoy a slice of pizza or a sweet treat occasionally. Balance is key, and indulging in their favorite treats doesn’t mean they’re falling off track (and same for you!).
“You must love doing cardio!”
Cardio is just one aspect of fitness, and everyone has their own preferences. Some fitness girls enjoy lifting weights, while others find joy in cardio exercises. Celebrate their diverse choices and don’t assume their workout preferences.
“Do you ever get tired of working out?”
Just like anyone else, fitness girls may have days when they feel tired or lack motivation. However, they power through and find ways to stay motivated. Encouragement and support are always appreciated during those times.
“Your hands are very rough…”
Yep, we know. Well what can we say we like lifting heavy things and that doesn’t hydrate our little palms unfortunately. You might just have to get over it.
Women working out are strong, determined, and inspiring individuals who deserve our support and encouragement.
By being mindful of the phrases we use, we can create a positive and empowering environment for everyone at the gym. So, let’s cheer them on, celebrate their achievements, and remember that fitness is a journey that’s unique to each individual.
Together, let’s inspire and motivate one another towards healthier and happier lives!
