Growing up, we were heavily involved in sports, becoming national and international competitive athletes. It brought so much to our lives, including learning about teamwork and time management, how to be a good teammate, how to win, how to lose, and brought us a love for health and fitness into our adult lives. It taught us how to have a positive attitude and to get up and play for the betterment of ourselves and our future selves every day.
We were lucky to grow up in a household that was very supportive of our sport careers and dreams. But not every girl is given this gift. In such, we want to help ensure every girl receives this gift one way or another. The work we do with our FIT Girls events, social media, newsletter and media relations all has the goal to inspire young girls to be involved in sports and fitness, and feel confident and empowered to live a healthy life.
We do that by bringing inspiring, positive, female sport role models to the forefront. We offer inspiration through our social media every day. We put on events for girls to try new sports, learn how to be more confident, and feel empowered and inspired. We create materials for parents and girls to help them grow and feel proud of themselves daily.
