Kristen Louelle is a breath of fresh air. The Zeno Gym chief branding officer and 2021 Swim Search finalist recently posted about her approach to fitness on her Instagram account. She shared her philosophy that what matters is how you feel—go ahead, dance on the treadmill like she does in her video post—and offered a list of reminders for her followers. Let’s count them down. Here are Louelle’s eight things not to worry about on your fitness journey.
