The other day at boot camp a new lady started., She was rail thin. In fact some of the other ladies told her they wouldn't be in boot camp if they were as thin as her. Her goal was to gain strength. I watched her workout. She was using really low weights, like 3lb and 5lb. I use 10lb and 12lb. She wasn't able to do everything completely.
Skinny is NOT fit
The trainer mentioned the next day that the same lady texted her a bunch of time about how sore she was and how much she hurt. My first week of boot camp I really wasn't very sore. Just one day but my butt was a bit ouchy.
I will be FIT not Skinny
Another trainer mentioned that sometimes skinny people have a high percentage body fat, "skinny fat". They are not fit. I love my developing tone, muscles. I love to see the changes in my body. I love getting fitter.
