We all know being fit is important for our health, but are we doing enough so that it’s serving our lives in more ways than just a number on a scale or how we fit in our clothes?

Here are three ways upping your overall fitness will not only change your body, but ultimately, change your life:

1. You seek out new challenges to help you grow – Let’s face it, either we challenge ourselves, or life will find a way to challenge us.  If you can step up and try new experiences and challenges through fitness activities, you learn to take challenges head on and develop strength and resiliency that you can apply to all aspects of your life.  Fitness is more than just physical, it’s mental, emotional, and spiritual; the strength you build from challenging yourself will become the backbone that supports you when life throws you a curveball.  You learn to rely not only on the endurance of your physical body to get through tough times, but your mental and emotional fitness as well.

2. You see opportunities and possibilities beyond the status quo – Moving and sweating through physical fitness clears our heads and opens up our senses. Over time we build the capacity to receiving new ideas and being open to new things.  You energy is no longer stagnant and life takes on new momentum because of your efforts to stretch, move, play, and sweat.  Mentally you become more optimistic and see things in a new light. Emotionally you start to be more open with your heart space and allow for more connection and love in your life.

3.  You take on new definitions for yourself – Not only will your body start to take on new muscle definition from upping your physical fitness, but you begin to form new beliefs about who you are, what you can do, and how you present yourself to the world.  There’s new found confidence and a subtle surge of pride as you begin to see yourself differently.  As you carry yourself in this new fit way of living, you almost go through this metamorphosis of who you are, and people start to respond to you differently.

Power up your fitness, inside and out, and watch it enhance all areas of your life.  You will be stronger, happier, more confident, and generate new positive energy.

As a professional coach who supports women and girls to creating lives that are healthy, strong, and full of dreams come true, I obviously LOVE the power of coaching.
