The bias that exists for female athletes

Visit this awesome website Female Athlete

Often when I say I'm a fitness trainer or an athlete I can just see people guaging the circumference of my thighs or the area of my belly. Because according to them that is what makes an athlete. How about you step up and run six miles with me skinny boy or anorexic girl. Because athleticiscm is about skills and training. Not about how I look. I'm a woman. A curvy woman. Whether I dress like a lady or dress like a boy, I am a woman, an athlete. Whether I eat an apple or eat tiramisu, I am an athlete.
