The Gift of Your Body

Love Your Body

I started using the Peloton app this year after we invested in a bike. The workouts are great — variety, challenging, not just spin! — but that’s not why I keep coming back to the app. One particular instructor, Jess Sims, has helped me change my perspective about my body … and yours, even if that sounds strange. Sims’s catchphrase is “You Get To” — you have the privilege of working out that day. You have the privilege of time with your body. No matter what you look like, no matter your ability or what you think you’re capable of, you get to. No one else has the gift of your body, just you. That way of thinking goes beyond exercise and fits into every aspect of life.
