Women are awesome.
In fact, we think it’s about time people start recognizing just how awesome women are. So, Smart Fit Chicks is starting a new weekly post via social media titled #womenwednesday. We’ll start by highlighting some inspiring, kick-ass women in our lives. But, as time goes on, we’d love for you all to submit stories about those women who motivate/inspire/empower you! So who will be our FIRST EVER #womenwednesday highlight? The one, and only, Ms. Kryssy Johnsrud.
Kryssy Johnsrud’s (aka TRX and spin master!) Story:
“Never a failure, always a lesson” ~Rhianna (and probably someone else equally important, but that’s how I know this quote). Well actually, I only know this quote because of my sister’s collarbone artwork. Albeit simple, this statement is powerful. Many people are unable to rise above their failures. My sister is not one of them.
Despite what has probably been one of the most challenging years in her life, Kryssy “re-created” herself. Tossing the bad and keeping the good, my sister is now the best version of herself. Kryssy is happy and healthy. She’s been a rockstar at work, she has built a new social network (which is a much healthier one, might I add), AND she is now a gym goer/exerciser/lover of all things active. A huge shoutout to Bean and Sara Harrah at Urban Flex (urbanflexfitness.com) for playing such a huge part of my sister’s transformation. Also, I secretly love that Kryssy exercises now because that means I now have someone else I can buy cute workout clothes for.
To say I’m proud of Kryssy would be an understatement. She has always been inspiring to me….I’m just glad she is starting to see herself in the same light that her friends and family have seen her in for years. Thank you for being a source of inspiration to me and for being our first ever, #womenwednesday star!
