Happy Wednesday Squadies! I hope you are all enjoying your August so far! Today we are bringing you an extra dose of motivation with our AUGUST SUPER SQUADIE ANNOUNCEMENT! This month’s super squadie is a LEAN MOM & MACHINE! She is:
Jen has been a part of the squad since May 2020 and is about to start her 3RD 30 DAY CHALLENGE! WOAH! Since joining back in May, Jen has been so leansiprational to myself and the squad! As a stay at home mom of 4 kids ALL under the age of 10, it is safe to say, Jen is always kept busy with something to do! Once stuck in quarantine, Jen was in need of something NEW! As a cardio junkie, she typically had trouble sticking with programs like ours which include strength training, but she decided to DIVE IN and get going with a new fitness routine. Not only was she able to stick to the 30-day challenge, but she also ENJOYED it and has NEVER MISSED A DAY so far!
We are SO glad Jen decided to join the 30-day challenge! Since the beginning of her journey, this lean mom has been super active in the 30-day challenge slack group! She is ALWAYS posting her sweaty selfies and being super open and honest about how her workout for the day was. Her honesty is super motivating and helps push everyone to keep going! Not only has she motivated others, but through her sheer dedication and commitment, she was able to build momentum to keep her going each and every day! She feels stronger and more confident than ever!
Thank you for being such a HUGE source of motivation for myself and the squad! We are super proud of all the progress you have made thus far and look forward to having you on for another 30-day challenge!
