Fitsporation

The concept of Fitsporation – #Fitspo – Has evolved in the era of social media.

I’m an exceptionally visual person and have long sought out visual representations of my goals and aspirations. Yes, I’m the person who created books of magazine clipping collages before the glorious Age of Pinterest. {And yes, I still have them}

I find inspiration images and quotes exceptionally motivational. I have folders on my phone and laptop for just those types of pictures. Plus, you know, all the Pinterest boards.

That being said, I think that there’s a line that’s very easy to cross this day in age. The one between inspiration and comparison. I think it’s especially prevalent on social media because you’re seeing a beautifully curated excerpt from someone’s “perfect” life.

You don’t see what it took to get there. Or what happened immediately before or after that picture was snapped. Or how that image fits into the grand scheme of that person’s day or even life.

For this very reason I’m a big fan of #Fitspo Instagrammers who keep it real. Totally real. From talking about bad days at the gym, bloating & soreness to┬ámissed workouts, rest days & real life priorities.

It’s nice to have a real life glimpse into what’s going on so that you don’t feel like you’re not stacking up.

Life is rough, unexpected things happen all the time – The key to finding a happy, healthy balance is a great attitude and to keep giving it your best.

Now tell me what YOU think about Fitspo – Do you find it inspirational or is it actually detrimental to your progress?
