As a part of Fitfluential, I am taking part in Under Armour’s What’s Beautiful 3.0. It’s a community of female athletes who create profiles saying what their recent short term goals are they would like to accomplish. There are groups you can join depending on what your goals are. There are so many. Some focus on being strong everyday, pregnant athletes, yoga enthusiasts, or just simply moving everyday. You complete challenges based on your goals. I’ve only been doing it for a week and I’m already amazed at how much support these women give each other. Now to me that’s inspiring and BEAUTIFUL!
Under Armour is also giving away many swag bags and a trip to Costa Rica. So fun. I really like that there is an app for iPhone and Android devices. I can upload my challenges anytime.
Beauty to me means giving your all in everything you do. If it doesn’t make you happy, it’s not worth it. As far as working out goes, I run, I lift weights and practice yoga because I love it so much. No one forces me to do it. It has become a huge part of my life. I wouldn’t recommend those type of workouts to someone who doesn’t enjoy it. But if they did want to start exercising, I would recommend something based on what they like. It could be swimming, walking or a dance class. As long as your body is moving and you are having fun, you are becoming healthier.
We need to redefine beauty. As women, we need to encourage each other more and stop the comparisons. If you stay positive and keep pushing to be a better person, I think the negativity will just bypass you. That’s why I’m really excited for this. I’ve done a few challenges and I already see the support. My main goal is to complete a 5k in 25 minutes. If you read yesterday’s race recap, I’m actually much closer to that goal than I thought I’d be.
It’s simple to sign up and create your profile. Let me know if you do here in the comments so I can follow you and cheer you on too! I love that Under Armour is focusing on what women can do and not on what we look like.
