My Biggest Fitness Inspirations

My weight has been climbing up and up since I left college which is mainly due to me going from playing football the majority of the week to doing less and less exercise over the years due to a knee injury and working in an office. However, after attending the Gymshark lift Manchester event last July something switched in my brain and I knew that I wanted to get back in shape and shift a lot of my weight as I just wasn't happy or comfortable anymore. My journey didn't actually start until January this year though but since then my mindset has really shifted to being a better & healthier me and I have well and truly stuck to my journey, which has not just surprised me but others too as usually by now I would have given up.

One of the main reasons I haven't given up though is due to me discovering a great community on Instagram where I have found people who spur me on, keep me motivated and just reminded me even slow progress is progress. It isn't just them that have inspired me to keep going though there are two of my favourite celebrities that have recently undergone their own transformations that have shown me anything is possible and that if you stick to something your mindset really will change and you can become the best version of you. I do have two big inspirations though and they are two people who have undergone major transformations in the past two years and who just remind me anything is possible...

First up we have Sidemen member Ethan Payne, who is the reason I went to the Gymshark event. When you look at pictures of 2018 Ethan, you can just see all the hard work and dedication that has gone into Ethan getting into the shape he is currently in. You can also see all the hard work he currently still puts into his transformation. When you watch old Sidemen videos back it is hard to believe that is the Ethan we see today. His transformation videos he has done in the past have also inspired me as they are actually pretty informative and he doesn't skip over bits like others usually do.

Then we have Lucy Spraggan someone who I have followed for years and her transformation has just been incredible. If you follow Lucy on social media you will see just how much effort and time has gone into this whole journey she is on whether it is from going sober or working out she really is giving it her all. I love sitting and watching Lucy's Insta stories especially the working out ones as it gives me ideas to incorporate into my own workouts and just goes to show me anything is possible. It is actually due to Lucy that I trialed not drinking for a whole month in July and you know what I noticed a difference so I am really going to cut back on my drinking.

So there you have it those are my two biggest fitness inspirations at the moment, if I am having a bad day or struggling I will often just head to their Instagram accounts watch their stories, just to gain a bit of motivation and remember what I am trying to aim for and that if they can do it why can't I. These are two people who continue to inspire and motivate me daily, who does that for you?
