I am elated to announce that I haven been chosen to be a FitFluential Ambassador! Yes, me I was chosen (that was for me, because I am still having a hard time believing it!)!
If you are not familiar with FitFluential, it is a community of influencers with all different backgrounds and levels of fitness. The influencers connect with audiences in regards to food, fitness, health and wellness. FitFluential Ambassadors are passionate about inspiring other through their own healthy lifestyle.
When I applied for the ambassadorship, I really figured I would be chosen. I had read that 40-50% of all first time applicants were turned down so I was ready to receive that email. You can imagine my surprise when I opened the email and it stated I had been selected to be an ambassador! I won’t lie, I teared up! Not all that different from the other times I had found out I had been chosen to be an ambassador. However, this one is slightly different for me and I am not sure why.
As part of the application process I had to write an “essay” as to why I wanted to be a FitFluential Ambassador. I thought I would share with you what I wrote:
I want to be a FitFluential Ambassador for so many reasons! But there is one that really stands out to me. It wasn’t all that long ago that fitness wasn’t even a word in my vocabulary. However, in 2012 I made a commitment to myself to make a lifestyle change that included eating healthy and adding fitness in. That is when I discovered several FitFluential Ambassadors, and through watching them I was inspired to not only add fitness, I ended up falling love with fitness.
I envied those ambassadors that were runners. I wasn’t a runner but I so wanted to be one. After watching them on social media, I got up enough confidence to give it a try. And that was the beginning of an amazing love affair that has not only grown but has challenge me to open my eyes up to new actives I never thought I could do. After running five half marathons, I have challenged myself to complete my first triathlon and could be more scared & excited at the same time but I know that I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for those ambassadors that inspired me to give running a try.
That is my number one reason for wanting to be a FitFluential Ambassador, the ability to inspire others to be active like I was inspired! FitFluential is amazing platform and I truly believe that we would make amazing partners. I want nothing more than to inspire others like I was inspired to create a happy, healthy, fit life!
So, I hope that I can inspire others like the FitFluential Ambassador inspired me!
