Where does fitness end and disease begin?
The line separating the two can be a fine one and, for most, a blur. In fact, crossing this line is often perceived as admirable, even worthy of envy.
From the outside an ultra-lean, sculptured female physique may be looked upon by her peers as a body to die for. However, from the inside it may be a body she is dying for.
Okay, maybe that’s a bit of an overstatement.
Then again, maybe not.
Working as a personal trainer for eight years and then as a diet and lifestyle coach for three, I learned many lessons. The lesson I will share with you today is this:
Looks can be deceiving.
In every gym exists at least one woman rocking a bra top to show off all eight of her abs. The one who seems to be there no matter what time you go. The one who women gawk at more than the men.
My female training clients would often express envy over this woman, however unbeknownst to the damage taking place beneath the hard-bodied surface.
Looks can kill you.
Oh, there I go again…
