Sex. 
The sudective, half naked, dripping wet, bent over, sexy eyes is what seems to be STILL, the top sellers. 
I would have thought that died out in the 90s with playboy, but it has not. 

What HAS happened is that it has spilled over into the fitness community like a damn plague. 

So where is the line between a nude shoot and a fitness shoot?
Why is it now "fitness" because the naked model is in a boxing room or a weight room? 
Why is it fitness because the model has "fit" in his/her Instagram handle? 

You know, I was going to go one way with this blog, but I'm going to change gears on you.
I was going to run with "the bashing" of how its wrong and how it's not fitness.
But one, I hate the word bashing and two it's not what is going to get my point across. 

I AM ALL ABOUT " YOU DO YOU " and if I'm feeling feisty " you do you boo, boo. " 

If you want to let a dude with a camera, that claims to make art, but then the only stuff on his IG is naked girls, and makes you one of his "models",
again YOU DO YOU. 

And let me stop right there!
Some professional photographers can make a nude shoot classy and BEAUTIFUL.
Kai York does the most beautiful shoots of women. His photographs make you feel something, and see that his model FEELS beautiful. 

But IN MY OPINION, there is a huge difference between and professional classy photo, and just a dirty sex driven photo. It's about what that photo makes you feel. 

Many will disagree. Many will say, naked is naked. and I GET that and respect that. 

Lets switch gears and go into the videos I'm seeing now. 
I love that you're into fitness and want to share the workouts you're doing, but to put the camera on the floor between your legs while you're doing sumo squats.... 
or of bent over rows with the camera set up behind you as you are bent over in spandex... makes me only think this video is for one reason, and its not fitness related.
 

 

I'm getting to my point, I promise I'm not bashing... 
This has nothing to do with the appearance of the female, big boobs, little boobs, fake hair, no hair, trans WHATEVER.

The question is - Does the post you put out there represent the version of you that you want to be seen as?

DOES THE PHOTOS you post barely covering your nipples laying on the ground represent YOU. 
DO the videos you post represent the best version of you. 
Is the number of likes from thirsty dudes on your photos worth it to you, over a different type of picture that maybe doesn't get as many likes? 

If you put your true self out there, your personality, the real you, and randomly post a little skin, you still will have the respect. 
its the pages that are driven with provocative photos / videos that invite the mind to go strait to sex.  That is what I'm talking about here. 

Its the daily video and photos being posted that are being masking by calling it fitness. 

Some of these things,  I, at age 28, even have to look away and do a hail mary. Bless my soul I just saw the outline of your vagina lips, but your caption is telling me you're showing me how to do a single leg step up. 



Just some food for thought is all. 
Im not innocent nor am i saying I am. The photo I attached shows a little booty.

All I want to put out there is make the "online" you, match you, your heart, and your intentions. Don't get mixed up in the "sex sells" side of it all.
People will respect you for what you post. Make it positive, be a positive light for someone. 
Naked or not, it just depends what kind of people are you trying to motivate and impact.

Im a huge advocate for being YOU.
Being exactly who YOU are. and Respect the F. out of yourself...
Hold yourself at the highest standards. 

And don't get me started on why its not fair that men can post half naked photos and its okay and women do it and they are dirty for it. I didn't make that rules or create that in the world. Its the way it is, get over it. 

and lets be honest Men just aren't as beautiful as women ;-) 

So through my rambling, if you take anything away from this, scroll though your page and ask yourself, does this represent me... does this put out the vibes to the universe that I intend, the thoughts I want people to think when they see this... thats all. 
Be Brave, Be Bold. and stay True. 

and shit if your true self is posting naked then let them Tits fly home girl .... <3


* and side note. if you have the words " Jesus first "in your bio, but you are posting your naked self all over the internet and videos of your vagina and using fitness as the reason... me and you need to have our own one on one kinda talk, because that is 3 kinds of not okay.
