What does fitness look like?

According to the photos that came up below when I did a Google and Pinterest search of 'fitness', the image of fitness is a white 20-something cisgender female (or male) with visible abs. How did this even come to be? And what does it mean if you're the majority of us who don't, will never, or don't really want to look like this?


[Apologies to those who ARE white, 20-something, cisgender females. I promise I don't have anything against you. I just want to make way for more body types to be seen as beautiful and healthy.]




Where is the space and celebration of other body types as healthy, beautiful, and normal? - Disabled and Abled, Multi-ethnic and Multi-racial, Senior, Gender-expansive?


How many people give up or don't even start because they look at that 'norm' and don't see themselves?


How far removed does a "healthy lifestyle" seem from your day to day life?


It's time to change the expectations and image of fitness. Slim is not synonymous with healthy. Young, white, cisgender, able-bodied is not the majority.
