“I’ve always really enjoyed being active – from rounders and benchball, to netball and hockey, to boxing and dance – but “active” doesn’t typically look like me. Being overweight, I often felt underrepresented – especially in a scene that is also not as diverse as it could be.

Many view social media as a negative tool, but I’ve always believed it comes down to the content you choose to follow and immerse yourself in. For me, it has been uplifting to come across more and more people who embrace their relationship with exercise – and actually look like me! I’m grateful for fitness communities, such as Humans of HIIT, that motivate and inspire us all to enjoy being active, no matter what level we’re at. 

I also once came across a tweet that said, “Exercise should be a celebration of what your body CAN do, not a punishment for what it can’t.” That changed my perspective forever. So much so, that I’ve even launched my own beginners’ dance classes and workshops (@vybe365 on Instagram), encouraging you to Dance Your Way, Every Day.”

 

Thank you from the Humans of HIIT community for sharing your story!
