Fall Into Fitness: I am Strong Because…

This week I challenged you all to tell me three reasons you are strong.  Here are mine for 2015:

I am strong because…

… I am resilient.  I don’t let injuries, illness, or soreness hold me back from reaching for my goals – I work around whatever is going on, and I usually discover something new and helpful in the process.

I am strong because…

… I can do pretty much any weird thing I find when I’m sifting through fitness information online, and I’m not afraid to try it.  If I don’t succeed at first,  I keep working until I get it!  Weird BOSU trick?  Totally there.  TRX push-up variation #247? All about it.  Scorpion pose?  Closer every week.  Unstoppable.

I am strong because…

… I work on my weaknesses.  Pull-ups don’t come naturally to me because my shoulders have some unique issues, but it doesn’t stop me from training for them every week.  Long-distance running wasn’t easy to build up to, but I did it and I maintain my running base.  I was afraid of inversions, but now I spend a lot of my free time upside down.

…and because I’m an over-achiever…

I am strong because…

… I tore out an entire wall with my bare hands, a hand saw, and a keyhole saw.

 

So far, the report from your fellow challengers is that you’re strong because you can lift your own luggage (an awesome feeling!) and do a ton more push-ups than you could before you started training at Tiny Fitness.  Why else are you strong?  Tell me and I’ll add it on to this post!
