For many people, the idea of “athlete” evokes images of slender runners 🏃🏽‍♀, flexing bodybuilders🏋🏻‍♂, and six-pack abs — but the truth is, athletes come in all shapes and sizes.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Read the story of Roz 'the diva' Mays @rozthediva, a personal trainer and pole dancer! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I started pole dancing since October 2007. It’s one of the toughest things I’ve ever put my body through, which is why pole dancers are so damn strong. That first class really kicked my ass, but it was also some of the most fun I’ve had in my life.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now I’m the one doing the ass-kicking. I remember teaching my first class, and hearing my name screamed from the ceiling because a student had made it all the way up their 13-foot pole. I was holding back tears because I couldn’t believe I’d helped someone do that. I want people to know that pole dancing is for everybody; I have taught people of every age, every gender, and sexual orientation, and I’m incredibly proud of that.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Being a plus-size athlete, for some people, is a complete oxymoron. They believe because I don’t have a traditionally ‘athletic’ body type, that it should diminish all of my achievements in the athletic community. I’ve been told to my face that I don’t deserve to be leading other people in fitness classes because I’m ugly, I’m fat, I’m stupid, I’m dark — all things that have no actual bearing on my skill as a teacher, so it turns out the joke’s on them. As for what I’m still working towards? Well, Beyoncé: My pole is ready, I can dance on beat, and I’ve got really sparkly booty shorts. Call me!”

So excited, we bought an air fryer yesterday! I kept hearing about them and feel like it will be just like my Nutribullet, and get used every day! Now to learn how long things take to cook! . . . #bettinas_wellness_journey #weightlossjourney #doingthisforme #workingonmeforme #bestlifeproject #betterforit #findyourstrong #fitnessgoals #fitnessmotivation #gymmotivation #iwill #motivation #positivemood #plussize #plussizefitness #obesetofit #iamenough #getitdone #gettingitdone #airfryer #healthyappliances #cooking

I wasn’t going to post this because it might seem a) boastful and b) like I’m virtue signalling. But I’m SO PROUD after years of apologising for my body and heckles about my weight to have finally said the exact right thing in the exact right moment. We aren’t sorry anymore. We aren’t sorry to take up as much space as we need. We aren’t here for you to look at. 💪💪💪💪 . . #effyourbeautystandards #fatgirl #fatpositive #plussizefitness

Getting back on track after going a little crazy last night. I’m feel like I sweated out all the alcohol and sugar I took in. The stretching felt so good today!! #backontrack #weightlossjourney #weightloss #fitness #fitnessjourney #plussizeworkout #plussizefitnessjourney #plussizefitness #stretching #

What are your "trying very hard" activities? For me it's the elliptical, bicep curls, and walking up early to go without 😬 . . . . #weightlossjourney #weightloss #plussizefitness #healthylifestyle #fitness #babyyoda #meme #themandalorian #starwars

Day 7! . Tomorrow is weigh-in day and I’m super duper scared. I know I’ve been in beast mode all week with working out and my food consumption has been on fleek so, theoretically, I HAVE to have a loss. . But, what if I don’t? . Although I try not to live by the scale, I know I’m going to be incredibly discouraged if I don’t have a loss. . But, tomorrow, we’ll see. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Sunday’s are big days for me. I usually grocery shop, meal prep, clean my apartment, do all of my 🧺 , and spend the rest of the day at my 👵🏼 house hanging out with my family. Because I don’t usually get much downtime Saturdays are always my big day of relaxation 😴 . BUT last night I set my alarm, I got up early this morning, and headed out to 🦵🏼 🥊 . Afterwards I decided to stop at my favorite place in the world, TraderJoe’s, and started my meal prep for the week. . Splitting up tasks across ✌🏼 days is going to help me relax a little on both days and still get up and moving. I’m already appreciating this new schedule! . . . . . @ilovekickboxing_columbus_oh #PlusSize #PlusSizeFitness #FitnessMotivation #Kickboxing #Boxing #GetUp

Joining @goldsgymsocal 12 week 2020 challenge! This will be a good motivator for me along with the @beachbody Morning Meltdown workouts. I feel like a snowman ⛄️ and I just want the fat to melt away but I know I gotta put in the work and stay disciplined. I know weight isn’t everything but I weighed in at 231 this morning and that’s what I weighed at the end of 2018 ugh what is wrong with meeeee 😔 I am so excited to move into my own place the first weekend of the year ❄️ I will have my own kitchen and be able to cook and meal prep. Renting a room is hard I’m not used to it so I haven’t been cooking and just eating out or buying already prepared meals. But I’m going back to Freshly meals this week which will be good I got a Black Friday discount 😏 on the bright side I am proud of myself for continuing to move my body and maintaining an active lifestyle and gym gains. Gotta remember how far I have come! . . . #weightlossstruggle #weightlossjourney #fat #workoutroutine #teambeachbody #goldsgym #snowman #plussize #plussizefitness #plussizefitnessjourney

June 5 —> December 5 #progresspic ••• Progress since moving to NYC! ••• Haven’t been as consistent with my diet or activity as I want to be, but even small changes can lead to results. I’ve been a bit frustrated since the scale hasn’t been moving the past few months, but this is proof that the hard work has been worth it! ••• Been learning over the past few months how to forgive myself for sometimes eating the wrong things or eating too much and occasionally missing workouts. I’ve realized that perfection is impossible, but occasional missteps are not enough to ruin my progress and not a reason to give up on the journey. Here’s to continuing to find balance in living a healthy life! ••• #motivation #fitness #inspiration #gym #workout #fit #fitnessmotivation #bodybuilding #life #health #fitfam #goals #healthy #mindset #sport #gymlife #muscle #nycfit #nyfit #phillyfit #hiit #healthymindset #selfcare #fitnessjourney #plussizefitness #plussize #bodypositivity #bodypositive #weightlossjourney
