Joining Curves was a huge step in my #BMKBucketList challenge. I have had a few people ask why did I choose to sign up to a gym when the whole journey is about accepting my body. I think that it is sometimes forgotten that accepting your body also means taking care of it, learning to challenge it, nourish it and trust it.
Being part of a gym is not something that I had ever pictured myself doing, but I am SO glad that I took that first step in signing up. It’s been such an incredible experience to be greeted by a team who are ready to motivate me when I don’t have the motivation, myself. Seeing my body work in the way that it should, keeping up with the pace and getting better with each workout is my constant motivation. It’s not about the weight loss, it’s about feeling better about myself, about the way my clothes fit and the way my body moves.
Curves is currently running a competition and they want to know what’s your reason why. Just as I have shared #MyWhy to be healthier and fitter, they want to know what’s your why to be a better, stronger and healthier versions of yourself. Whether it’s as simple as your jeans fitting better or improving your lifestyle to be a role model to your kids, they’re keen to know!
Of course, you’re wondering what you can win. Well, there’s a R500 voucher that can be won for the most inspiring #MyWhy of each week. All of the weekly winning #MyWhys will be entered into an overall pool where the 5 #MyWhys with the most votes will win amazing Holiday Vouchers to the value of R 6 000. The Curves member with the top post will also receive a year’s free membership to Curves.
