Have you NOTICED the 2 fascinating worlds that both have their eye on the PRIZE, Best Personal Body??
by Athena Lee Jackson
IF I’VE ALREADY CAUGHT YOUR ATTENTION, you very well may be an enthusiast and practitioner of a gym rat (though I’ve personally changed THAT slang word to “gym bunny” but I’ll get back to all that!). Ok, so you may be one of the fine people who love body building, loving muscles and the aesthetics of them (you’re preaching to the choir!), you may be a competitive fitness person, or may just simply be in Love with the empowerment and self-awareness that comes from playing with dumbbells. Its the world of a different set of a “rush” that is endorphins, sleeping well, skipping happy hour and replacing it with biceps, and MOST of all: Making your PROTEIN intake a priority over martinis just the same as chia seed smoothies.
You guys are in an elite group. I salute you and am proud to say I’ve been with you since I’ve been a teenager.Your pay checks are most likely earmarked for Myoplex and amino acids. Substitute or add any other favorite “protein” powders and gone goes the priority of martinis and spirits and your budget gears towards your protein intake! And oh, I get it. You work, you have families, and quite frankly have a need to throw a good high protein shake in there at least once a day so it can all “work out”.
There’s another group of elite kiddies at the playground. I salute YOU guys too! And I’m also proud to say I’ve joined in your play dates of what’s all that in Kale and the new super heroes at the park that are “super foods”, Maca powder, olive oil leaf and raw greens powders that let’s face it: Our daily body builder friends would think to pick up as our muscle lovers eyes go straight to the protein section.
My thought provoking concept is this:
WHY can’t everyone at the playground all get along??
Its beyond me to believe the muscle lovers aren’t open to some new tricks. Its also beyond me to believe our wellness junkies couldn’t benefit from the body builders bibles.
Let’s be OPEN. And HONEST. BOTH have their APPEAL.
Both are clearly in touch with what it is to be extreme.
And, if you’re extreme, then you’re as crazy as me. Which means this: That you’d be OPEN to absolutely anything that better fuels the machine that is your body, your vehicle. BOOM!! I HOPE I’ve just reached my point and blown your minds by hitting this idea out of the park 🙂
Let’s narrow this down and get this new party started.
Muscles: Meet “Wellness”.
Wellness: Meet “Muscles”.
Please don’t look at each other like the new kid and the playground that doesn’t play YOUR way and be in that clique. We didn’t like you in high school, so don’t be that way now. No, neither one of you is too cool for the other. Neither one of you
