It’s an absolute honor to announce that I have been selected as one of just a handful of Movemeant Foundation Ambassadors, where together, we’ll be combatting a host of social issues that plague girls today – everything from rising rates of physical inactivity to an unrealistic standard of beauty. As this issue is near and dear to my heart and own personal experience; I am so excited to join forces with this amazing organization to show girls how to love their bodies by empowering them through health and fitness!
Some of the hard facts:
Negative body image and physical inactivity have grown to near epidemic proportions in the past 20 years. As many as 60% of women in national studies report that they don’t like the way their bodies look. And there’s been a dramatic 32% increase in no reported physical activity among young women ages 18 – 39.
- 31% of high school girls say they would undergo surgery because they feel insecure about how they look
- Less than 3 in 10 high school students get 60 minutes of daily physical exercise
- 44% of teens indicated that they regularly skip meals as a tactic for controlling their weight
- 65% of teenage girls admit they are afraid of gaining weight
These facts are somewhat startling but there is hope through organizations like Movemeant Foundation that help change the way & create a brighter outlook for girls and women!
Stay tuned on some great events that I will be hosting in order to raise awareness and help change the way girls look and think about their bodies!
