Find out who I am

I have been exercising myself for years. I started gymnastics as a child and regularly went to the BBB or the aerobics. 

I have always had an urge to be active. Walking, jogging, skiing, rollerblading, skating, boxing, Thai boxing, karate, judo,... I wanted to learn everything. 

I started strength training in 2018. I noticed how much satisfaction I got from getting stronger and it helped me feel better mentally. 

In 2017 I was diagnosed with autism and ADD (attention deficit disorder). In the beginning I was very curious about how I could incorporate this into my life without it having a negative impact on my daily functioning. Sports helped me with that. Sports became a new focus, an outlet through which I could express negative thoughts. It has helped me towards a more positive mindset and image.

In addition, exercising has also helped me to gain more control over my eating disorder. By focusing on getting stronger instead of losing weight or building muscle, I have come to accept myself for who I am. Getting stronger has helped me recognize the power of my own body.
