Calling all gym-goers, health nuts and athletes – I have a question, what is strength? Let me re-phrase that: What is your definition of strength? What does it mean in your mind “to be strong”?

To define strength, in my opinion:

To be strong is to be confident in what you are doing and proceeding with the path you are on, despite your obstacles in life. To be strong is not just physical, but mental as well. Strength to me is to mentally plow through the struggles that might be happening in your life. Sometimes it’s buried in your mind, and you have to dig it up. That’s how I try to become the best ”me”. To be a daughter, a sister, an athlete, a friend, a bodybuilding competitor, and someday a mother; All of these titles require different styles of strength. That is my personal belief of defining strength to correlate with my goals and lifestyle.

Strength is about believing in yourself, and so passionately that you’re not afraid of facing the situation at hand. Strength is telling yourself that you are good enough, brave enough, and strong enough to overcome that obstacle. Because you can. It’s realizing that you are capable ANYTHING you set your mind to.

True strength will emphasize what is said from the heart. I hope my definition of this ignites a fire in someone and motivates someone to take the next step…

Strength is persevering.
