CULTURE and FITNESS

What does “Redefine Health and Fitness” mean to you?

I see health and fitness more of a mental holistic way. It’s more for stress management and to help me cope with the tension of life in a healthier and more balanced way.

Chest, Back or Leg day and a fundamental exercise in your fitness program? 

Legs are very important and cardio. Need to get that cardio in every day. I live in LA so a run at Runyon is a must for me. 

 

Do you have a thotty gym story you can share with us?

I’m pretty boring at the gym when it comes to cruising and stay to myself, but maybe there are some mysterious steam sessions that have happened. 😉

How has your relationship with health and fitness evolved and what advice would you have for LGBTQI+ youth on how to not fall victim to the superficial pressures of social media?

I think for me yoga and meditation have been the biggest components in my life right now. I need to have more patience with myself and my body in order to love what’s on the inside first and [then] the rest will fall into place for me.

 

Not “if I was”… I AM the thirst trap. 😉

Finish this sentence: If I was a thirst trap…? 

Not “if I was”… I AM the thirst trap. 😉

How do you believe the queer community can be pioneers in making wellness more accessible for disadvantaged social groups? 

By showing up for yourself no matter what condition you are in. We’ve all been handed something different in our life and we need to be mindful of that and be ok with all our scars and go forth with more confidence.
