Should I put "from living a priviledged life?


As I watched Emily help her mother out of the wheelchair, I realized her physical strength came from hard work rather than living a privileged life.

Living a privileged life does not tend to provide anyone with physical strength (unless, I suppose, one can afford an expensive gym membership or personal trainer and actually follows through with regular workouts).  I would delete it and end the sentence after hard work.
