Jessica Ennis – Jillian Michaels – Jodie Marsh – Victoria Pendleton
This has been a really difficult post to come up with. It can be so easy to say what you don’t like or what you don’t agree with (I find it tough to bite my tongue) so I’m keeping this a very positive post instead.
I love to see strong, athletic women and it’s something I aspire to be like. Jessica Ennis and Victoria Pendleton are Gold medal winning British Olympic athletes, they have crafted their bodies into ultimate machines to make it to the top of their sports and that is something I really admire. A combination of eating the right foods and dedication to training has reaped the results.
Jillian Michaels is the woman behind the infamous 30 day shred dvd that so many of us have come to love/hate. A personal trainer with the drive to keep herself in top form and inspire others to push themselves too. You have to love her. The shred is a workout I’d highly recommend if you’ve not yet tried it.
Jodie Marsh is the most controversial of the women I have included, she has a lot of haters out there. Personally I have a lot of respect for how she has transformed her body. She now has a range of body building products which by all accounts seems very popular. I have to emphasise that she does NOT use steroids and I don’t advocate anyone who does.
So there we have it, my ideals for body image. For years I’ve been describing my body shape as boyish but I’m now going to take the bold and somewhat ahead of schedule step of renaming it athletic. I’ll be sure to do a final fitness update before the year is out as I’m already thinking of New Year’s resolutions.
If you’d like to leave a comment then please do, but only positives – let’s leave hate at the door on this one. Thank you.
