Under Armour: What's Beautiful ~ Redefining The Female Athlete!

Fitness Challenges are something that many of us love to take part in as...

It strengthens our motivation to get up and go!

They also have a way of...

Inspiring us to move (off from wherever we be sitting) and start exercising, but above all...

Open our eyes to...

What we're really capable of achieving if we put our minds to it! (While enjoying it at the same time!)

Fitness challenges are also FUn because...

They allows us to push ourselves towards things we may have thought impossible to reach!

I mean...

99.9% of the challenges and goals I've given myself I never thought imaginable to attain...

That is...

Until I decided to turn my lifestyle around into one that incorporated Health and Fitness! (And started believing in what I can do as opposed to what I can't do!)

Throughout the past 2 1/2 years of my healthy living journey...

I've been able to discover a whole side of me I never knew existed!


That being...

My physical side! (Thank you SuperFit for showing me there is life beyond the couch and coffee shops lol!)

This side up! ;)


Having had the incredible and continuous support in helping me reach my goals as well as...

The motivation I received along the way...


That it itself...

Pushed me to reach even greater heights and overall...

Believe in myself and what I'm truly capable of accomplishing! (Then and now!)

These are two inspiring and motivating ladies!
Where my goal and I came face to face.
Running my very first half-marathon!
I never thought I'd run, let alone run in a race, but I did!
Never say never!


Setting goals, I believe (and through my own experience)...

Have a way of bringing people together! (I don't think the many great friendships I've built and made along the way would be where they are today if it wasn't for this new lifestyle!)

Whether your goals be small or larger in scale...

Doing something for the good of your body and mind is always a good amazing thing!

Let's just say...

Each and every goal and challenge I've given myself or taken on has made me stronger as a person (both inside and out) and, for that reason alone...

You can believe I won't stop exploring this side of me I've only just discovered!

Which brings me to this...

If you've been wanting to set a goal for yourself, are looking for that extra push or motivation to get you going, or perhaps you've wanting to take part in a challenge...

Under Amour has an awesome contest going on through their What's Beautiful campaign!

If you haven't yet heard of it...

The Under Armour What's Beautiful program is set out to redefine the female athlete (female person who likes, loves or wants to start exercising) by...

Encouraging women to share their fitness journeys (no matter if they're just starting out or not!) by documenting how they got there from start to finish! (Via photos and videos!)

Sound cool eh?

Well, it is!

By joining the Under Armour What's Beautiful program...

You will have to chance win free apparel (woOp!) and above all...

Receive motivation and support from Under Armour along the way as well as from women who are setting out to define #whatsbeautiful to them!

All you need to do is...

  1. Set a goal or a challenge for yourself (be it to run, try yoga, do a weekly spin class, train with weights, exercise more often, etc...)
  2. Crush it! (While of course being mindFUl of your own limits!); and
  3. Complete some FUn challenges! (Which they will post once you join in!)

And if that isn't enough...

Under Armour will select 10 winners who've documented the most motivating and monumental journeys to fitness, and from there...

Be flown to Clearwater, Florida, in early 2013 for an ultimate fitness getaway!

Where exactly?

At the Under Armour Women's Camp Sweat! (This is where some of the Top Athletes from around the world come to train at! And did I mention you also get to take advantage of  their luxurious spa treatments?! Yep!)

If this is something you'd like to take part in (and maybe it's the push you've been looking for!)...

Sign up and join the What's Beautiful community that is growing bigger and bigger every day!

As for me and my journey...

I will continue to live the life in health and fitness I have chosen to follow...

One day and one drip of sweat at a time!

There's no denying...

It's been a beautiFUl experience thus far!

I joined the What's Beautiful campaign when it was first launched back in May but have kind of fallen off. Seeing all these posts has started me thinking about getting back into it. I do love what Under Armour is doing and the incredible women who have come together.

    1. It's really motivating to say the least! #whatsbeautiful is all these women coming together and redefining the Female Athlete! So very inspiring!

  14. The UA challenge sounds like a great opportunity/ push to truly follow through with those goals we all have for ourselves but push off until tomorrow... I'd love to participate! The past couple of weeks I've been incorporating *a lot* more weight related routines into my workouts and have already felt an improvement :D I'd love to stick with it!

    P.S. Your pictures are fabulously fun!
