Fitness models have become the epitome of fitness.
Each time you pick up a Health and Fitness magazine, they’re gracing the cover.
• With their perfect bodies,
• their ripped abs
• and their insane legs.
In fact, if you don’t look like a fitness model nowadays, it’s common to consider yourself fat and overweight.
But, whilst they do look incredible there are a few things that they don’t want you to know. However, in true style, I’m going to give you the inside scoop into the secrets they never wanted you to hear.
The low body fat, and photo-shoot ready look you think Fitness Models carry around all year around, couldn’t actually be further from the truth.
The body you see on the front of a magazine lasts for a couple of hours, to a day, maximum.
That’s not to say that they aren’t in amazing shape for most of the year. But, they only look THAT perfect for a limited time.
Instead, for the other 99.9% of the time, they look a little heavier, a little thicker, and a little less Photoshopped.
Getting to fitness model shape takes a lot of work. And, sometimes, you don’t realize it.
Trust me: it’s not that they spend an extra hour in the gym each day.
Their whole lives are dictated by their body:
• What they eat,
• when they sleep,
• their social lives
• and even when they’re going to have sex.
Each aspect of their life is planned out with extreme precision, and there is no time for flexibility.
Looking like them is amazing, but do you really want the life that goes with it? There are much more achievable ways of having a kick-ass body, and a life alongside it.
Much like actors, actresses and glamour models: it’s not what they look like, but how you make them look.
And, the better the lighting, the darker the fake tan and the world-famous black and white photo-shoot’s all make people look a little better than they actually are.
So what am I getting at?
And, unless you want to make a career from it, you shouldn’t aspire to be one.
Instead, look at how you can get fitter, healthier and stronger; all while sticking to a good diet and having a life around it.
Don’t compare yourself to models. Instead, compare yourself to what you used to be like.
