SIZE DOESN'T DETERMINE THE FITNESS LEVEL

Meet Nadia Aboulhosn, who’s on the cover of the April 2016 issue of Women’s Running.

Although she’s often described as a plus-size model, Aboulhosn  doesn’t use that term to describe herself because she believes it creates a binary where one type of body is considered “normal” or “standard,” and anyone who is bigger than that is considered not normal.
“It’s because society sees fit people as being smaller … People don’t think my body type is healthy,” Aboulhosn said.
But Aboulhosn wants people to know that you can’t tell how fit or active someone is simply by their size.
“We originally selected Nadia for our feature on fitness/fashion influencers, but we loved her energy so much, we knew we had to put her front and center on our cover,”Women’s Running Editor-in-Chief Jessica Sebor said.

This is not the first time Women’s Running has featured a plus-size cover model, but I am always happy to see bigger women included in the mix. 

But regardless of terminology, it’s not that common for fitness magazines to feature a diversity of bodies. I know from experience that being thin doesn't mean the person is more active or healthier. Heck ! I am bigger than many women in my gym but they can't keep up with me. So go and be proud of who you are.
