Meet the #PSPfit Volunteers! | Plus Size Fitness

April 28 2014 | CeCe Olisa

Today is the first official day of #PSPfit bootcamp! (The next cycle will be in the fall, pre register here) Some of my bootcamp babes from previous cycles noticed how overwhelmed I’ve been and were kind enough to offer to help out with #PSPfit.

These girls are kind, inspiring and I’d like for you to meet them:

Amy 1

Amy: United Kingdom/Boston, MA 

Hey, I’m Amy! I’m based in Boston, but am originally from the UK (where I will be for half of this round of bootcamp)!

I spend my free time doing fun stuff with my friends, usually involving nice dinners and wine! I’ve done 2 rounds of #PSPfit now, and I honestly love it.

I am so excited to be involved in this round, but not so excited about giving up wine for a month – you will see my posts about this in the private facebook group!

Looking forward to meeting you all as we get started! 🙂

 

 

bw12-13Johara: Boston, MA 

An attorney, an educator, world traveler, bibliophile, art-lover and admirer of all things beautiful. I’m forever loyal to my NY roots, but now I reside in the Boston-area and am loving it. I blog as a means to express myself through my clothes, share what moves me at Luvin’ My Curves. I hosted a #PSPfit meet up in Boston in January and I can’t wait to do it again for Cycle 3!

Colleen: Philadelphia, PA 

Although the average American women is 5’4” you don’t see many models in the fashion industry to represent that. I’ve set out to change that. I’m breaking barriers one gig at a time as a petite plus model.

On my blog, shortcurvyfierce.com, I share her journey. I also founded a charity fashion show, Curvy Closets!

Can’t wait for Cycle 3 to begin!

 

Malia

Malia: New Jersery 
I’m a Jersey Girl, a Licensed Physical Therapist Assistant and recently started to take the time for ME (I just ran my first half marathon!)
The #PSPfit Bootcamp is about support, encouragement, advice and more importantly the perfect time for you to know that you are not alone and that your curves deserve to be healthy curves!
I’m passionate about #PSPfit because I can see first hand what it has done for me and those around me! I want to be healthy to be good examples to my patients, to keep living and enjoying the time with my family and friends and most importantly so I can be the best I can for me! Can’t wait to meet all of you! I’m here for all the support you may need!

Aubrey: Philadelphia, PA 

Hi, I’m Aubrey! I’m a Philly gal that is known for her contagious laugh and big smile.  I’m currently making the transition from law into full time nonprofit work focusing on education issues.  I’m passionate about educational equity, finding new plus size clothing options, and scoring the best happy hour deals (after, #PSPfit of course!).

Tanyah: Binghamton, NY (#PSPfit Admin Team)

I am a native Floridian, some would say a Southern Gal,  living in Binghamton, NY– for now!

I grew-up understanding that the greatest difference amongst people was not how they looked but rather what they believed and how they acted on these beliefs.

I wholeheartedly believe that “to whom much is given, much is required” and that “service is the rent we pay for a space on this earth”.  I have had a passion for service for as long as I can remember.  This passion for service leads me in all that I do.

 

DSC02109Amanda: Toronto, Canada (#PSPfit Cheer Squad)
I recently moved from Ottawa back to my home city of Toronto, Canada. Not quite sure what the future holds, but I’m always on the look-out for a good bike path and a cup of tea!
I’m eager to take on new experiences and see #PSPfit as important to creating a space for honest conversations about our bodies, connecting with like minded women, and empowerment. During Cycle II, I participated while on a solo-adventure across Europe. I was motivated by my #PSPfit lifestyle to eat clean and be active while traveling!
 I look forward to getting to know you on Twitter (@amandasartori_) and Instagram (@amandasartori07)!

Miranda: Long Island, NY (#PSPfit Cheer Squad)

Hello, everyone! I’m Miranda and I’ve been on board with PSPfit since the very beginning.  I have lived in New York for 2 and 1/2 years now, but I am still a Kentucky girl at heart!

In true southern-belle fashion…I am crazy about my family, my boyfriend, country music, spending as much time as possible outdoors and playing with my (adorable) dog, Jackson.  I am passionate about cooking and learning new, healthy recipes that taste great.  I also love to dance.  I regularly take Zumba and Hip Hop dance classes, my favorite form of exercise.

 
I LOVE being a part of the #PSPfit Cheer Squad.  I have met so many wonderful women and have gained so much inspiration from this group.  CeCe’s vision for #PSPfit and Abra’s incredible wisdom have literally changed my life.  I have broken an addiction to diet soda.  I eat more vegetables for breakfast now than I used to eat in an entire day.  I exercise regularly, and most importantly… I have learned that when you approach this journey from a place of self-love instead of from a place of deprivation, you will be so much more successful and also happier in the process!   
 
I am here to support you in any way you need it!  Don’t hesitate to reach out to me.

Brianne: New York, NY (#PSPfit Cheer Squad)

My name is Brianne. I’m originally from South Dakota, but have been in NYC for twelve years. I’ve been on board with ‪#‎PSPfit‬ since Cycle 1.

I’ve met some incredible women and made life long friends. I’ve gained an arsenal of information and recipes that have made such a difference in my life!

I’m a big advocate for what CeCe and the #PSPfit team are doing. And since I can’t keep Abra sitting on a shelf in my kitchen, her amazing recipes and tips will have to do! 

Welcome to all the newbies! Welcome back all the varsity crew! I’m a proud member of the Cheer Squad and am here to help in any way I can! I can be found on Twitter: Sngbird, Instagram: BriMaiSD, and Pinterest: BriMaiSD

P.S. In all the food, DON’T FORGET YOUR WATER!

    Howdy Partner. You look like the type of guy who needs to have a little fun. You can have all kinds of fun at http://camgirl.pw/ That’s the most exciting site on the internet. You’ll never experience a dull moment there. Go ahead, give it a try. Just remember to be on your best behavior. Cowboys can be rowdy. Try not to drink too much time at the saloon before heading on over there.
