“I am a Smart Fit Girl. I am strong both physically and mentally. I respect my body and my mind. I love myself for who I am and everyday I strive to be the best version of myself. I am a Smart Fit Girl, and I encourage and empower all girls to be the same.”
In celebration of National Smart Fit Girls Day on November 23rd (the day SFG officially became a 501c3 registered non-profit) I asked Junior coach Phoebe Richey and SFG Lead Coach Leanna Carr about their experience with Smart Fit Girls and how it is changing their lives each and every day.
“I started working as a Coach for Smart Fit Girls earlier in the year,” Leanna . “I moved to Fort Collins a couple years ago where Chrissy Chard (co-founder) and I became friends. After hearing their vision/mission statement, I knew I had to be involved. It’s an incredible program.”
At the Fort Collins site, Smart Fit Girls meets two times a week for two-hour sessions. Each day they start the session with a journal entry that is relevant to the lesson they will be learning. For example: “When you hear the terms self-esteem and body image, what do you think about?” or “How do you think social media impacts the way you view yourselves and others?”
