Sweat Pink [& yoga day 12]

[t gellenbeck]

I recently became a Sweat Pink ambassador through Fit Approach.    Unknown

A running friend asked me the other day, ‘What does that even mean?’  I laughed and explained it was just a way of inspiring and helping others to live healthy lives.  Their motto is…

“Sweat Pink Ambassadors live the Fit Approach mission every day: they sweat hard, play hard, and inspire those around them to achieve their best selves.”

Here are my beliefs that align with SWEAT PINK’s philosophy…

  • I believe in helping others begin or continue their journey to a healthy lifestyle through exercise, clean food [with the occasional glass of wine, coffee or bite of chocolate :] and a positive FIT attitude
  • I believe that strong is the new skinny
  • I believe in overall fitness and although I’m a runner at heart, I know that cross training [biking, hiking, yoga, strength training] is important too.  I am eager to learn about new fitness and foodie ideas, connect with other FIT minded people and share what I learn with others… YOU!
  • I believe in the color pink!  Whether you’re trying to look good or support breast cancer… pink is a great color 🙂

Fit Approach is a community for fitness minded _____________ [ <—- insert your choice term there ~ professionals, enthusiasts, bloggers].  So check it out sometime!

My first few days as an ambassador began the FIT Approach 10 day Instagram challenge.

Yoga Challenge – Day 12

We had our group run this AM so yoga for today is just some light stretching and poses [mountain, runner’s lunge, forward fold].  This counts, right?

For some good resources including videos on yoga for runners, visit Runner’s World Yoga Center.  And don’t forget your day #12 yoga pose from #independencearmy; Buja Pidasana or shoulder pressing posture.  We will keep working on this one…
