I guess you guys should know from my IG stories that I’ve been working out pretty seriously these days. I’ve recently joined Playground fitness for strength training and it’s the best decision I’ve ever made this year lol. I’ve always been working out on and off myself and also take up boxing classes occasionally at Fire station fit. But always in my comfort zone.

I was motivated by my boyfriend to get a coach. It was actually his plan to get a coach because he became super lazy to go to the gym. At the same time, I was approached by CJ from Playground fitness to try on their group classes. I wrote back to him with a proposal, told him that I wanted a good program that can be a part of my lifestyle, not just a one off thing just to achieve a certain type of body. CJ was really open with ideas and I’m glad things works between us. My boyfriend came on board and I literally forced Ashley to come along too. 

I remember including taking fitness seriously in my new year resolutions since idk when. I’m now training 3 days a week at Playground fitness. To be honest, they are days that I hope to skip but I promised myself to cut all excuses, and give myself more reasons to hit the gym.

Here’s my reasons :

1. Bella Hadid's Body 
CJ asked my to show him my body goals because he knows that everyone has their own perspective on the perfect body shape. I love Kendall but I think I have bigger hips so the closes that I think I can achieve is Bella’s body *minus the boobs lol*. I’ve seen Bella in real life, dancing right beside me at Coachella, I was starstruck af. She has a really tiny waist and she look super healthy. I know sometimes it’s the genes but I won’t take that as an excuse lol. So whenever I feel like skipping gym, I’ll just look at her Instagram and get my shit together.

2. Healthier lifestyle 
One thing why I love working out, I tend to make better food choices. I didn’t want to waste all the hard work at gym. I know I couldn’t go all clean diet, but I’m cutting carbs and taking more protein. Whenever I ate something heavy, I’ll make sure I work extra harder in my next gym session. Even when I travel, I try to go to the gym whenever I can.

3. If not now, when?
I love to challenge myself. I seldom say no when it comes to extra weights. I know if I don’t do it today, I’m going to do it someday anyway. I love looking at @dogpound ig ( a gym account from NYC ) where all the VS angels trains at. I believe they put on a lot hard work to become that strong and I believe I can too. I just need to get myself together. Even though some days I do feel weak but i never give up cuz I know I’ll be super satisfied after that. It’s all about dedication.

Now...tell me, does fitness plays a big part in your lifestyle? Or just not feeling it?
