This week’s krasey fitness feature is something a little different from our usual. Mainly, I’d like to discuss what motivates me.
I’ve recently discovered a site called BodyRock.TV, which is in essence a fitness forum and blog started by a couple, Zuzana and Freddy. Now I’ve spent quite some time combing through the site and forums, and have come out with no small amount of motivation. Reading the stories of some of the forum’s members, watching Zuzana and Freddy demo series after series of grueling interval workouts, and generally immersing myself in the online fitness culture has motivated me in ways even I couldn’t imagine, and I’ve emerged determined to get myself not only smaller, but leaner, more defined, and more muscular.
I want more definition, darnit, because I know I can do it. So I am stepping it up on the weight and resistance training, all for those six pack abs (though to be honest, I’d settle for a four pack), the toned arms, and the sculpted back. It’s weight training or bust, and all for a goal.
That there is the Freya Charleston, a new addition to the Freya Swim Line. With her bold color, sexy silhouette, and decidedly retro feel, it’s no wonder I’ve fallen head over heels for this bikini. Even better of course is the fact that she accommodates to my unusual, busy proportions.
Now you may not know this, but the whole reason I started this fitness thing was because my weight had gone up past the point where I felt comfortable enough to rock my favorite bikinis with confidence. In fact, it got so bad that I had to purchase a tankini. Not good.
So with some newfound fitness motivation, and a goal (rocking the swimsuit next year on vacation), I have started a new phase of the krasey fitness journey, and I am excited.
So, what motivates you?
