Hey There! Welcome to Journey to Mobility
My name is Elaine. Journey to Mobility is a blog that I created to share with you what it’s like to train for flexibility when you know little about how to actually start. Don’t worry – I’ll be here as your guide.
On this blog you will find flexibility routines for beginners, stretches for muscle pain and healthy meal prep recipes that will make you feel like a chef!
Why I Started Journey to Mobility
Flexibility and mobility become more important as we age. I hope that Journey to Mobility will help you on your way to better movement (without pain!).
My Fitness Journey
When I started fitness in the Summer of 2013 – one of my goals was that I wanted to start something that I would never stop. Fitness is something that I have continued to do for myself and that’s the way I think it should be.
Growing up, I remember always being the one that was sick. I was 20 pounds underweight and I thought that that’s just the way my body was.
During my second year of university, I came across a pilates video on YouTube. I was back at home, it was around midnight but the feeling of excitement stuck with me that night. I told myself that I wanted to do this the very next morning. I’m thankful everyday that I did.
For the next 4 years, I did pilates, HIIT and weight lifting. This transitioned into my interest in nutrition, meal prepping and making healthier versions of food that I love eating. I was constantly learning, observing and challenging myself in new ways.
In 2017, I found myself going to the gym without a plan. It felt mindless and that was not the way I wanted to see fitness. I decided to try out pole for a month and it quickly took over my life :). I was excited again – but this time I was surrounded by people who were all on their own journeys. As I went to classes, I would see these women achieving their goals week after week and I couldn’t help but feel… amazed. This led me to explore flexibility which I’ve written about in this post, mobility and dance. All of which I was terrified to do but I knew that I was ready to start learning.
