Meg Boggs and the Difference Between Being an Athlete and Being Healthy

#MegBoggs #Thor #LifeOverLooks

Meg Boggs is a popular instagram influencer and powerlifter. She recently posted on her IG account this picture that showed her contrast with another popular fitness influencer Tara LeFarrara. Her wording went on to say that both bodies are worthy of a fitness journey which I completely agree with as I personally feel that Tara is a bit too lean to also be seen as healthy, but the convolution of athleticism and health is a very misguided one. Just because someone is an athlete does not mean the person is in any way healthy. Athletes can be healthy, but being one does not normally mean they are as athletes push their bodies in a physically extreme way to produce a directed type of performance. Most athletes are actually not all that healthy due to the demands of their sport. For instance strongman Thor recently retired to focus more on his long term health.

These types of notions are the same ones that lead people to believe they can be 300 pounds and healthy.
