What's Your 'WHY'?
Each week we've been asking you to share with us your 'why' - or, more precisely, why you've decided to make the commitment to live a healthier lifestyle. You have all been sending us some really great answers and we are excited to share another motivating one with you today!
Here's what community member Joy from the Philippines wrote:
I tried a series of the high impact/extreme cardio that I wasn't able to maintain in the long run. I burned out and decided maybe I'll try them later on again when I've regained my strength.
My main "why" is I want to improve myself and feel better. (I'm) not exactly depressed, but unhappy. My family has a history of hypertension and I'm blessed with my current health, and I don't want to want to take maintenance medicine at my age (32).
When I saw your Walk On: Walk Strong videos, your message got to me. I don't like doing push ups and burpees anymore. I got the Walk Strong and I felt good. I made it a birthday gift to myself. The workouts were something I could do even in my bad days. For me, it's better to start somewhere and not rush.
Thank you Jessica, I'm always motivated by you, especially your YouTube videos because you reach out to us, who are working out at home. No need for expensive equipment.
Happily walking on,
Thank you so much for sharing your special WHY with us Joy! Congrats to you on all of your hard work and accomplishments. We're so glad you are a part of our community. Please keep up the great work you are doing taking care of your body and your health - you are an inspiration!
It's so important for us to remember that eating well and moving often isn't just about trying to to fit a certain size or weight... If you can go below the surface and tap into YOUR deeper WHY you may find it more motivating than shaping up for 'bikini season' ever was...

We're all here to help inspire and motivate each other :)
