What does 'fit' mean to you?
Is there actually a clear definition of “fit” or does it just come down to how you personally feel?
or when we finally meet the criteria that media and society along with brands have labelled an ideal?
Is it what we can physically see in the mirror or is it how out of breath we feel after a 2 mile sprint or how many reps we can get in the gym?
We want to be our fittest selves, we want to be healthy, we want to feel good about our appearance but we don't want to and will not conform to society's definition of FIT.
In our opinion …. fit means something very different to everyone, or at least it should.
In biological terms, being fit means
“being able to provide for one's own life and wellbeing"
We think a lot of us wether we would like to admit it or not strive to be a part of the ideal that some brands or society in general have labelled 'fit' , sometimes subconsciously striving to be a part of that world… a ‘winner’ , ‘beach body ready’ etc now don’t get us wrong who doesn’t want to lose a few pounds and feel like they could if they wanted run a marathon ? being fit and healthy is good but why should we feel so under pressure to FIT in?
If you can run for 2 seconds more than yesterday, you're a winner!
If you can achieve 1 more rep your a winner if you can’t well your still a winner because you're trying!
