Also known as National Lover’s Day, Valentine’s Day is seen as the most superficially romantic day of the year. For those who don’t have a significant other in their life, celebrating this day may seem pointless. However, Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be exclusively celebrated by couples. This holiday can also be a celebration of yourself. Instead of focusing on a significant other, focus on loving yourself and your selfies.
As a lover of fitness, taking workout selfies sometimes seem like a must. In the fitness community, after-workout selfies practically come with the territory. On this Valentine’s Day, while you are focused on self-love and taking care of your body, stop and capture the moment by taking a selfie. This will help give you a boost of confidence throughout your workout. Taking a selfie doesn’t have to be considered vain either. Many fitness gurus take fitness selfies as a form of education for their followers. While you are loving your selfie, share it on social media to educate and motivate your peers through your personal workout regimens.
A few fitness rock stars that love their selfies:
