Women need to stand together to celebrate what's beautiful in all of us. Are you with me?
Under Armour has recently launched the third round of their What's Beautiful campaign and I'm happy to be one of many FitFluential Ambassadors (like Alexis) who were asked to be part of a campaign spread the word.
I had a hard time picking my goal at first. I went for a 4:15 marathon initially, but I wanted something I could accomplish in the 8 weeks of the campaign. So I thought, "What would make me feel tough and accomplished?" Push-ups! I want to be able to do a lot of push-ups.
I'm going to make mini-goals along the way and do 100 push-ups without rest in just 7 short weeks.
I also wanted to form a team to share my fitness passion. Ladies STRONG IS SEXY! Lean muscles look good on. And how do you get them? By lifting heavy. I hate the stigma that lifting heavy weight bulks you up.Team Fit2Flex and I encourage you to pick up a dumbbell heavier than you usually use. Then in 4 weeks go up once more. I know you will see and feel that change. That's beautiful.
Besides the inspiration and power behind this campaign there are prizes. Under Armour will pick winner's each week to win a swag bag and at the end of the 8 week for lucky ladies will be sent to Costa Rica. How do you say "pick me" in Spanish?
