Fitness in Kenya is taking a U turn , can I hear an Amen! ….. wait a minute! first things first , Happy new year.I hope I am not too late. I wish you all the love and blessings you could possibly receive from God. May your dreams come true and may this be that one year that your health and fitness journey takes a U turn, for the better of course . When I say U turn I mean no more weird side eye looks and murmurs for that fellow who decides to check into a gym or put on their running shoes for the first time , no more hate for the girl or boy who does everything in her power to stay healthy and fit (that includes sipping on that green tea more often) ,no more procrastination ,what if tomorrow never comes? ( I said that deliberately to scare you) .no more ditching your workouts for your favorite TV series (Real Househelps of Kawangware …I see you) .get it?
I think we can all agree on this , Health and Fitness in Kenya is literally taking a U turn and evolving right before our eyes. I mean, it is a beautiful thing to watch. More and more people are embracing this, not as an occasional hangout activity where you and your girls decide to go to the gym to show off your new sports bra you got from ‘toi’ (Beryl, I see you, I kinda feel you on this one though)
..or when a guy and his buddies decide to go and check out girls. .Instead, it has become a lifestyle. we eat breathe and live health and fitness, we yearn to be better both from the inside and out.
I challenge you today.Do not be left behind. do not miss out on the fun, as I said on my first ever blog post , as seen here , It ain’t always pretty, their is the muscle aches , the critics and it is all black and white at first.But that is just 2% .it definitely gets pretty and colorful once you overcome this obstacles and crazy stumbling blocks. The 98% is the best percentage, the healthier happier and stronger you . So do something , sign up for yoga/gym , dance to your favorite songs more often, run a mile or two every week …whatever makes you happy do it. break a leg , not literally, and have yourselves a happy fit year
