"I love anything that keeps me moving", I love this!

Angella has made an amazing transformation. Her story highlights the importance of moving your body and ensuring you find time for yourself every day. Not only for herself but to be to ensure she is a great role model for her kids.

August 2016 she decided it was time to make a change and now she loves inspiring others to get moving as well. If you are looking for a bit of inspiration to start your active journey please read Angella's story and motivation.

Age:

What is your ACTIVE?
I love anything that keeps me moving but if I had to pick one....definitely spin.

How did you find your ACTIVE?
I slowly began getting active after I lost 60lbs. I sourced different avenues to find people like myself that were losing weight, needed to start moving but were still also overweight. I joined a couple of low impact classes at our local rec center and went from there.

What do you love about your ACTIVE?
I love being able to keep up with our kids and motivating other people to get moving.

What surprises have you experienced through your ACTIVE journey?
Everyday is a new surprise. I love pushing myself to see what I can do and I love inspiring people to know they can do the same.

What were the challenges getting started?
None. I was motivated to get healthy and nothing was stopping me this time.

How do you keep yourself motivated?
I make sure that I have time for me everyday. Working out and being active makes me happy and once I knew my happiness also mattered, the time was easy to make. I may not always be motivated but I’m constant and to me, that’s what matters.

If you could share one piece of inspiration to those finding their ACTIVE and staying motivated, what would it be?
Find what makes you happy and do it.

How has your ACTIVE changed over the years?
In my younger years I was extremely active, then life, then babies, then excuses. Once I stopped with the excuses and got back to being active, I feel like a new me.

Words of wisdom to share:
Be your own cheerleader.

BollySoul Dance! Moving your body can be in any form and that is the best thing about finding your active and being an everyday adventurer.

I love Saniya zest for all things dance and how teaching has allowed her to grow, learn new things, and step outside her comfort zone. In Saniya's words "dance is about making people smile and bringing them together in movement."

This is a motivating read about putting yourself out there, asking for help and how moving your body and having the courage to follow your dreams can lead to finding your happy place.

Finding motivation wasn't easy for Alyssa, but she kept persisting until she found what was right for her. Everyone's active is different and it is all about finding your bliss and what is the right fit for you. 

I love Alyssa's story and motivation and how she has grown to love moving her body. Being an everyday adventurer starts with leaving your comfort zone and #FindingYourActive.
