My wife has been competitively bodybuilding for two years, and I am about to enter my first contest. However, I have been struggling with the question of modesty and humility.
Obviously, contest posing requires much of the body be revealed. The scanty posing suits are not intended to be sexually arousing but rather to allow judges to evaluate muscularity and symmetry. My wife and I have always worked out but this seemed a worthy goal to see if we could compete at 40-plus years of age. The intent is not to get attention per se (although obviously there has to be some ego involved) but to challenge ourselves against others who also eat healthy and work out. We are natural lifters (no drugs or supplements, just working out and food). Finally, through training both of us have been able to not only assist others in eating/living healthy but also (and more importantly) to evangelize.
Given that our intent is not to lead others into impurity but actually to use the opportunity to share our faith in a rather unique way, would there be a Church teaching that we are violating or in danger of doing so?
