As I countdown to 40 and reflect on what it means to be Fit, it’s not about a number on scale, the year on your birth certificate or a look. For me, it is about freeing my mind to live a lifestyle where I make choices that support my overall health instead of working against it.
With that in mind, last night I hosted a pre-birthday celebration at SoulBeat Spin and Barre Studio in Audubon, PA. This was an active fitness party where my guests had the option of taking a 45 minute rhythmic spin class or a ballet inspired barre class. I themed the party “I don’t sweat, I sparkle”, so along with 35 of some of the strongest woman in my circle we sparkled our way through. We stepped out of our comfort zone and it was truly AWESOME! After we pushed ourselves in the barre and spin classes we enjoyed food and drinks while laughing the night away.
For some this was a start to their fit journey, others have been on the journey but this was the first time taking a barre or spin class. No matter day 1 or day 100 we were all in it together. It warmed my heart how everyone came together for the common good, to celebrate me, but left having given back to themselves as well! Last night showed me that as women, no matter the color, ethnicity, size or shape we can come together, encourage one another and hold each other up on our journey.
I’m truly blessed to be surrounded by these women and am encouraged by the strength they show in their daily living.
It’s not too late to join in the “try something new challenge”, there are 10 days left to propel yourself out of your comfort zone, why not take the leap!
