CEO of Fitness by Nori, Lanora Wyatt, is here to share her dynamic approach to health and fitness. As a former member of the U.S. Navy and Army, a Human Resources professional, and a Certified Master Trainer (CMT) through the International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA), this individual has learned about overall well-being and how to achieve it.
After facing rejection during her childhood, adolescence, and adulthood, there was nothing to lose for Lanora. Hence, she transformed the traumas and the negative emotions that came with them into something that drives her to reach for her dreams and to achieve them. She exposed herself to different types of activities, but none really stood out until she was introduced to fitness. In 2019, she was invited to a workout class by a close friend and after attending a few sessions, she instantly saw positive results.
But more than the physical changes, she saw how her emotional and mental states improved. She began to feel good about herself again. She stopped looking for love from someone else and she learned to be the person who will love herself. And that is what she wants you to learn: to love yourself, every bit and piece of your being.
Allotting time for regular physical activities can help in keeping your bones, muscles, and joints in good shape. Additionally, it lowers your likelihood to develop illnesses and diseases, such as diabetes and hypertension.
But aside from physical wellness, exercising can keep you healthy, mentally and emotionally. Several studies have shown that having an active lifestyle alleviates symptoms of anxiety, depression, and negative mood by improving self-esteem and increasing self-confidence.
Instead of only focusing on the physical benefits of exercising, Lanora delves deeper into the heart and mind. She wants you to integrate mindset and motivation with movement. Through her personal experiences, she is living proof that fitness is not limited to losing weight, becoming lean, gaining muscle, and enhancing strength and endurance, it can also help you become mentally and emotionally healthy. Widening your scope around fitness allows you to get a clearer picture of the results you want to attain, and that is overall well-being, which encompasses every aspect of your life.
Fitness is for everyone regardless of weight, age, sex, and health conditions. Exercise can improve your physical health and physique, but the best reward is being healthy and fit in all aspects of your life. So what is stopping you from getting up and moving? There is no better time to start your fitness journey than now! There is no better way to be fit than to love yourself.
