“I want to show people that working out can be freeing,” Watson said. “It can be enjoyable. It doesn’t have to be something that you have to do all the time. It doesn’t have to be oppressive and I think a lot of people just need to be freed from that image or that idea, ‘If I can lift five pounds more, if I can lose five pounds more, then I’m going to be better,’ because it’s a never-ending cycle.”

She also wants other women to find success in the weight room.

Watson was intimidated the first time she stepped into a weight room, a place usually dominated by men.

“It was hard for a girl, because psychologically, you’re like, ‘I don’t want to gain any weight, whether it’s muscle or not,’” Watson said. “And a lot of girls and even a lot of people [in] society look down on girls with a lot of muscle and personally, I can be biased. I think soft muscle is beautiful.”
