The Lebanese woman is a handful and truly a bunch of distinctive features that, truth be told, get her spotted as Lebanese whenever abroad. At least that what foreigners have said about us. Beautiful, yes, but also smart, well-articulated, funny, elegant, self-confident, tasteful, nurturing, and caring of her family and friends.
With all that, adding the household responsibilities that are culturally on the mothers, she manages to also find time to be self-caring.
While fitness was not really an important part of our previous generations, it is very much now. It has actually become far more than a trend with our Lebanese women.
The wave for health and fitness lifestyle is sweeping through our homes, and these top 5 fitness promoters, who have taken Instagram by a storm, are the tip of the iceberg.
#1 Baraa El-Sabbagh
Baraa radiates positivity and makes you think twice if you’re really living up to your full fitness potential. She is a certified dietician, author, and personal trainer.
Baraa captures her viewers to not look at dieting and weight training as a frustrating chore but more along the lines of a lifestyle change. The food that she incorporates in her diets is always well-balanced.
She manages to relate to her viewers who may not always have time to go to a gym; so she creates ways to bring the gym to them at home!
She's gone even further to uplift her fellow women to a higher level of health. She has made available to them cookbooks of her own creation for healthy and easy cooked meals. They can be found in various bookstores across Lebanon.
