How you are inspiring women in fitness/sport?
I started really getting into fitness about 4 years ago and noticed that women in particular, including my friends, were very apprehensive to be in a gym for fear of standing out or looking stupid. Having gone through that initial 'imposter syndrome' myself I could really sympathize.
It wasn't until the beginning of this year that I was encouraged to put more of my workouts on social media and the response I had from women was amazing. Since then I have been involved in getting women feeling comfortable with fitness, speaking to girls about their training and goals, giving them workout ideas and meeting other like-minded women at fitness classes and wellness events.
I have also raised money for breast cancer research through charity races and encouraged other women to do the same, and am currently training for my first half-marathon in 3 weeks time for the cause. I believe getting women confident in themselves is the first step when looking at women in fitness and this is something I have really tried to advocate.
Why did you enter this competition?
Women in fitness is something I am really passionate about and I try to incorporate the movement into my day-to-day life. The competition was a perfect fit for my hobbies and Under Armour are a brand I wear a lot, they emulate empowerment which is a key message to women in fitness.
How you feel about winning?
I'm so happy to have won a campaign for something so close to my heart! I really can't believe it and will continue to incorporate the message of empowerment and confidence for women everywhere. I hope that this will motivate other women to get into fitness and to overcome any reservations they may have.
