‘Fitspiration’ Gets A Much-Needed Makeover

By Alexis Wolfer

“Fitspiration,” those pictures or mantras designed to “inspire” you to “get fit” (not healthy, just “fit,” whatever that means) is one of those things that seemingly has all the right intentions… it just falls oh, so short.

And dangerously so.

When I stumbled upon a BuzzFeed article correcting popular “Fitspiration” images, (yes, correcting – not editing,) I immediately loved it.

Especially this one:

What do you think?

Do you think “Fitspiration” has a place in motivation? Or, like me, do you think it only works to make women feel inadequate, self-conscious, and down on themselves, which is never the way to inspire? Tell me on Twitter @AlexisWolfer!
