Courtney Hope On Exercise
“When I was younger I would try to shrink myself,” Hope posted on Instagram. “I tried the I be as tiny as I could be, physically. Which never fit my personality or my heart. I was always thin because I was so active, but after a while, it became an obsession. I’m thankful I discovered being strong was more fun and fitting to who I am deep inside.
“Being fit, lean, and most importantly active is still a top priority, but I’ve loved seeing my body grow as I’ve challenged it to pushing more weight, removing limits and exploring new forms of fitness,” the athletic actress said, adding, “You’re meant to shine, not to dull your light.
“I’m thankful for the people around me who help me grow daily, including my trainer @alecpenix and my boyfriend @duelly [Chad Duell, Michael, General Hospital] who’ve helped me push my limits and aided in removing any unwanted and untrue stigmas,” Hope posted. “I’m so blessed to be in love with and continuing to study fitness and how the body works, and I can’t wait to keep exploring and growing throughout my life.”
She concluded her thoughts by asking her followers what obstacles are they overcoming? One poster, @brenairvin, wrote: “Beautiful as always@Courtneyhope love u keep doing what ur doing u&@duelly are a beautiful couple. Merry ChristmasGod bless y’all&stay safe.”
