After launching FIT & Flirty in August of 2018 I quickly realized I had a message to share with the fitness community and the world. More than anything I want women to stop obsessing over their dress size, the number on the scale or achieving a “perfect body”. I want to encourage every single lady to recognize that no matter where she is on her fitness journey, she is beautiful as is, powerful because of her uniqueness and should be celebrated (with champagne of course). I want women to see fitness as a tool to improve their lives and not as something they need to do to look a certain way or as a punishment for eating cake last night.
I knew without a doubt there were other like-minded women around the world that saw fitness for its health benefits, as a way to feel strong through having fun and NOT as a means to try and achieve what society says is a “perfect body” this year. I believe when you’re healthy, strong (body & mind) and happy you radiate in the eye of others, regardless if you’re a size 2 or size 16. It’s our energy that make us beautiful not our waist size.
They say “your vibe attracts your tribe…” so I decided to start an ambassador group to reach ladies that shared my love for fitness, champagne and living a balanced life. I have to say the last 5 months building this small tribe (we’re 18 girls now) has been the most rewarding part of my business. I am so blessed to have met every single one of them. Strong, independent, supportive women from across the world, all thriving in different careers, crushing it at life and making fitness fun. YES, you can have your fitness and champagne too!
Today I would like to introduce to you one of the newest additions to the FIT & Flirty ambassador team, Courtney Boehrer. This lady is a very special soul, with an infectious energy and passion for life. Here is her story….
Keep your Head Up, Keep your Heart Strong.
When I was a little girl growing up in Indiana, my heart failed me. While my friends were swimming, dancing and playing I was introduced to the seriousness of life all too soon. I remember the smells of the hospital, seeing my dad cry for the first time and watching the worry in my mother’s eye. I recall hearing my sister proclaim her dream to become a doctor (which she did!). I can still feel the pain of the tubes like it was yesterday, as they were inserted and removed from my chest. I can sense the fear I felt when I was wheeled into the operating room to have my chest cracked open to repair the holes in my heart.
Today, I have an 8-inch scar that runs down my sternum and I wear it proudly. As a member of the zipper club, it’s one of the many battle wounds I’ve endured in my life, and it’s a reminder to keep fighting, even when the most vital part of me starts to break.
Although I didn’t realize it at the time, I was keeping my head up, while making my heart strong.
I have a passion to inspire others through fitness coaching. My career mentorship as a Human Resources leader for over 15 years at a Fortune 100 company, and the blessing of parenthood as the momma of two beautiful little girls along side my high school sweetheart, Greg.
I fully embraced the spirit of these words because I have fought hard with the demons of an eating disorder in college and I’ve also struggled with anxiety and depression. Luckily, in my health and fitness community I’ve found STRENGTH. Every single day, I wake up with the desire to spread the message of being HEALTHY & STRONG.
Does this mean every day is perfect for me? Heck no! Does it mean I don’t have fun and enjoy amazing food and drinks? Heck no! I may or may not be obsessed with Champagne!!
God gave me a second chance and by no means will waste that priceless gift. I am proud to lead and continue to build my team #HEARTSTRONG every single day.
Let’s raise a glass to making the most of every single day. I am Coach Courtney and I am here for you every step of the way!
With Love, Courtney 🍾💪❤️
