I have some AMAZING news to share with you! I’ve been bursting at the seams to let you know that I was contacted by Fit Approach, a San Francisco-based health and fitness company that holds bootcamps, fitness events, and so much more. As they say on their website:
Fit Approach: a healthy community we’re building, one pair of pink shoelaces at a time.”
I have long-admired the philosophy of healthy living that Fit Approach subscribes to, and have been showing the link love on my blog for a year. I also follow them on Twitter (@fitapproach), liked them on Facebook, and am pining away for their pins on Pinterest. The thing that really drew me in was the girl-power attitude that they show in everything they do – down to their pink shoelaces.
Anyway, back to my excitement. Out of the blue last week when I was having a rather tough day, I got an email from Fit Approach telling me how much they loved my blog and that they would love for me to become a Sweat Pink Ambassador! I can’t tell you how much that email made my day. Not just because of their compliments about my perseverance and never give up attitude, but because they saw something in me that they thought would add to their community. That I, a plus-sized, morbidly obese woman, could offer something that their active, fitness-enthusiast readers would want to read. I saw limits falling away and boundaries being broken. I was (and am!!) thrilled!
Who are Sweat Pink™ ambassadors?
- Enthusiastic health nuts who love sweating and eating well, but can also appreciate the finer things in life (chocolate, cheese, wine…)
- Natural leaders. They motivate those around them to achieve their best, and set an example of healthy, positive living. They set up running clubs for their friends, and organize gym dates early in the morning or after work. They get their co-workers to try yoga, and to order fruit instead of donuts for meetings.
- Passionate. Whether they go gaga for green smoothies or tear up the floor every day at Zumba, there’s something about living well that really gets them going, and their enthusiasm is infectious.
- Curious. Always looking out for the latest fitness or foodie craze, eager to learn, connect, share, and discover.
That sounds like me, doesn’t it? At least the me that I try each day to be! As a Sweat Pink Ambassador, I get to make an impact on a community that strives to show how much fun fitness can be. Not only am I going to be a contributor to their site, with all of the exposure that that offers, but they also provide tons of swag.
Pink shoelaces for EVERYONE!!!
Seriously, I have tons of pink shoelaces to giveaway. I’ll happily pay to send them to you, as long as you commit to take one photo of yourself out and about, being active and wearing the pink laces (shoe shots are fine for those who want to remain anonymous). I’ll collect a bunch of photos and add them to a bi-monthly blog post I’ll call #SweatPink Saturday. If you’d like a pair of pink laces, just email me your mailing address and I’ll send them out to you before the end of the week.
You know you want some pink laces so that your shoes can look as snazzy as mine do in this shot.
So, who’s going to show their #sweatpink love?
