Sometimes our lives are affected by things we can’t control. Periods of anxiety or depression. The loss of a loved one. A worldwide pandemic. When things start to go awry, it can be hard to stay on track, but the mark of an athlete is to stay strong in the face of adversity.
Law graduate and face behind LiveFitElle on Instagram, Elle Edwards, spoke to us about how fitness helped her navigate the challenges of low self-confidence, university and Covid-19, proving that whatever life throws at us, progress never stops.
Hey Elle, you’ve racked up quite the following on your Instagram, LiveFitElle, thanks to your super fun approach to fitness, but how would you describe yourself?
I would describe myself as fun, hardworking and determined. I am extremely loyal and caring – no matter the struggle, I never give up! I always put everything into what I’m doing, but never take life too seriously and like to have fun with what I do. Working out provides me with a safe space where I can clear my mind and get in the zone to smash my business goals.
What is your earliest memory of fitness or sport?
My earliest memory of staying active was definitely dancing. I started dancing when I was about five years old and did it until I turned 18. I also did a lot of skiing and water sports growing up.
