I’m such a cliché I literally feel sick. Sometimes I think I could only be described as a gym bunny, a Muscle Mary or any other silly name. One thing to defend myself (if I had to) is that I truly feel happier now than ever before I started working out on a regular basis.

The gym and the whole process of developing muscles boosted my self-confidence. I’m relatively happy with myself now and it’s very reassuring to think of my body as the one thing I can have a bit of control on. On top of it, I get a lot more attention and compliments now than 5 or 6 years ago.

I particularly love the feeling in the muscles after the work out. It’s the best start of the day. The icing on the cake is that I get to shower and share a sauna session with a few hunks.
