So to natives out there, please read this. I recently started turning my page into a progress page. Second year into my journey. I made a post with the hashtag #NATIVESWHOWORKOUT.
I was curious what awesome motivational pictures or videos I would find and as you'll see I only found three. (Second picture) Two of which came from me and one from a beautiful native woman. Now I'm sure there are other hashtags showcasing different aspects of natives but since I started my journey with weight lifting it's been heavy on my heart to represent the native community. Maybe even inspire a little girl who doesn't feel important or strong like I didn't when I was little. This is in no way meant to be exclusive, and no matter what race, cultural background you come from, if you have questions on how to get started or need help message me and I'll do what I can!
But specifically to my Native community, guy's, we are natural athlete's, and I know money or circumstance can seem like too big a issue. I know what it's like to feel like you're only seen as a novelty or some forgotten part of history. But you're not, we're not.
Diabetes have become a big part of the community, I want my future kids to know where they come from and be proud of their people. Im absolutely proud of my backround, Im also passionate about our health. To show we can be athletes, processors, artists, writters
I ask ANYONE who's curious about fitness, or just feels stuck, read, learn and practice all you can. Doesn't have to be weights, could be dance, running, swimming, ect. Don't starve yourself or try to "quick fix it" really become a student. I guess that's my point to this and for anyone who reads it Become a student at whatever excites you. Even the things that dont, because we're not going to like everything, but we can learn from anyone and anything. #NATIVESWHOWORKOUT #fitnessisforanyone #nativeamerican #fitness #youcandoanything #health #tryingtobmotivational #butendupbeingallmushy #lifting #hubbygavemethecouragetopost #weights #wellness
