Cut carbs? Cardio? Nah!

Fitness Model Priya Binion Fit shares, "Fit4Life Fact:

I believe the key to maintaining a lean physique year-round is consistent weights/cardio? Yes. Sensible eating? Yes... But also, it's living a balanced lifestyle. I believe in working hard, but (on ocassion) playing hard too. The physical & mental really do go hand in hand.

I've especially spoken to so many New Year's Resolution women who think the key to getting in shape is strict dieting 24/7, 7 days of exercise, & high intensity, long durations of cardio. STOP! Not only are you doing your body harm, but you won't be able to sustain such a regimen. More is not always better. Give yourself cheat meals (it's good physically & mentally!), take at least 1 day off (recovery is equally important to reaching your goals), and learn what your target heart rate needs to be to reach your fat burning zone, not focusing on endurance/stamina goals. (Slow down! You're burning off your muscle mass) And eat! Eating less shouldn't be the focus, but eating cleaner should be. When your calories are 'clean', you are able to eat more. (Bonus!) Also, the more lean muscle mass you gain, the more calories you can consume without gaining bodyfat. (Score!) So lift away! And lift heavy! ("Weights don't make you huge. Cupcakes do" ??) Oh, and ladies, carbs are SOOO important. There's no need to cut them out. I'm referring to white rice & potatoes too- Yes, they're okay to eat!"

Lifelong Passion

The 2015 Musclemania Australia Figure Medium Class Runner Up Alexandra Kierdorf-Robinson shares, "Unlike many others, I don't actually have a 'Transformation' story... ???????

I have always been IN LOVE with training, sports and fitness! It's in my genes, part of my DNA, it runs through my blood. Training is something I cannot live without!

It started with figure skating, then many years of soccer... Then I started spraining my ankles every other day and had to move on from the sport that I loved... And found GYM!

I fell in love with doing group fitness classes and thereafter became a group fitness instructor myself. After a few years I ventured into the actual weights section of the gym and haven't looked back.

Everyone will have their own fitness journey and that's fantastic! Mine started when I was very young and that's something that I feel very blessed about... That I got the opportunity to grow up in an environment where physical activity was a natural part of life.

If you're not there yet - at that point where your body CRAVES to move - don't worry, you will get there!!
Give it time, I promise, you will! ????"

Comparison : The Thief of Joy

Ms. Bikini Universe Pro Heather Messenger shares, "The only person you should ever try to be better than is the one staring back at you in the mirror.

I spent years comparing myself to others until I learned that comparison is the thief of joy. Never allow yourself to say, "I want to be just like her" because 1. You should be focused on being the best you possible, and 2. there is no one out there like you and you are too damn unique and special to ever let that go in order to conform to someone else's image. ?????"
