Prepare yourself for this heartfelt message alongside my unapologetically sweaty pic 💁🏻 Growing up I was never very coordinated or athletic. I saw exercise and a means to being skinny. I was embarrassed to try new things because I thought I would get judged for struggling so I just didn't try.
My new found love for movement made me realize that sweating and heavy breathing means I am trying my hardest and pushing myself. I realized that exercise isn't just to maintain my weight, it's to empower me to live the life I want. So when @ramen_turtle1 wants to climb to the highest view point, I don't even hesitate to race him to the top. Or when @laurenb_sf wants to ride bikes to the restaurant instead of driving, I jump right on and start pedaling. It sounds simple, but these are things that I never imagined myself being capable of.
The @movemeant foundation provides the tools necessary for girls and women to build these positive relationships with fitness and, most importantly, with themselves. I am proud to be a part of this organization and the #DaretoBare events because it provides hundreds of girls with role models and programs that I wish I had growing up.
As #DareToBareNYC approaches I hope that you will join me on October 1st in shedding my shirt and sweating it out in just my sports bra. At this #bodypositive fitness festival, we will be raising funds to provide life-changing health and fitness programs for women and girls. The line-up includes some of New York's trendiest fitness studios and space is super limited, so mark your calendars for Monday, 7/31 at NoonEST to register or sign up for pre-sale alerts at the link in my profile.
If you have any questions or want to get involved please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly. #girlpower #fitnessisfemale 🗣💪🏼☀️👯🦄
