Why is hill running a perfect life metaphor?

Life has its ups and downs. Same as the running. And when everyone wants to make life comfortable and pleasant, we are fast to forget that the struggle and the hardship have its values too.

Downhill running is easy and fast. But only for some time. Then your knees start hurting, you got bored, and you wish for the change.

Going uphill is different. It's hard for the muscles and heavy for the lungs. Your heart pumps the blood frantically, and your vision slowly shrinks. But you carry on, regardless, because you know that on the top you will feel great! The harder, the longer the struggle, more rewarding experience and the bigger sense of achievement. Don't be afraid mountains, run them!

It was completely opposite. I've quickly realised that the tempo was far too fast. My peacemaker was simply too strong. But it was too late for me.
From 3km I've struggled all the way to the finish line, cursing and looking for t…

Dear Fitness ProPlease explain me a few things because I'm very confused.

First of all, in your posts, you often preach that the body image isn't important, that it's not the six pack but the everyday movement practice is what counts. I totally agree!
Yet, to my horror, your Instagram is full of half naked, posing in front of the mirror selfies?!
Secondly, you have been saying that it's important to eat healthy, well-balanced diet. You are 100% right.
Yet again, every Sunday you post a picture of dozen plastic containers full of chicken breasts and broccoli?!
And lastly, my question.
Has someone hacked your social media account or you are simply full of shit?!

PS.
And the functional movement?! Don't get me started. There is nothing functional in sticking out the butt of yours!
