Assumptions Made About Fit People

Assumptions Made About Fit People

I am adamantly against making assumptions about people.  You’re probably aware that there are plenty of assumptions in society made about overweight people.  I do not agree with this.

But there are also assumptions made about fit people.
Some I’ve heard include:
• You’ve always been fit so you don’t know how hard it is.
• You love vegetables and don’t crave junk food.
• You love working out, so it’s not a struggle for you to get it done.

And the reality is that these things are completely untrue!
Fit people still have to make conscious choices daily for their healthy habits, which is hard for them too!

Fit people would rather have pizza than salad a lot of the time.
Fit people are often unmotivated or too exhausted to exercise.
The main difference here though is that fit people simply want the result more and they’re willing to consistently make the harder choices.

The Dream is bigger than the sacrifice they are making to achieve it.

Do you have a dream for your health, fitness or for racing and completing a triathlon?

I share this message with love today and so you know that I empathize with you, no matter which side of the spectrum you’re on.  In my life, I’ve learned the importance of not making assumptions and have consciously worked to let them go.

Do you have any assumptions you’ve let go of?  I think this is such an important topic, so please let me know what you think in the comments below.

Wishing you well,
Coach Erinne Guthrie
