Our Charity Miles Champion this week is Sarah Easley. She is proof that the power of a positive community can change your life. See how the Tone it Up team and the Charity Miles community literally transformed her.
There is no greater cause than raising money to help others and the fact that we can improve our own health at the same time! Amazing! I am so happy Karena and Katrina dedicated the Fall Challenge to charity and even happier than they introduced me to the Charity Miles app.
I’ve been a Tone It Up girl for 18 months now. When I started my TIU journey, I was looking to get in shape for my wedding day. I had no idea that this community would completely change my life.
I couldn’t even run a mile without feeling like I was going to pass out, so I started small. I walked a little each day. I also followed the toning exercises on the Tone It Up website. I wanted this to be a lifestyle change and not the next “fad” thing I did.
With the power of the TIU community behind me, constant daily inspiration, and motivation through Instagram, I was able to shed 25 pounds by my wedding day. I never felt more beautiful than I did on that day. After my wedding I made a commitment to continue on my fitness journey.
I signed up for my first 5k and cried as I crossed the finish line because not only 6 months prior to that, I couldn’t even run a mile. Then I signed up for an 8k, a 10k, and this past July, completed my first half marathon.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about this community. It has completely changed my life and I will be forever grateful. My hope for these next weeks of the Charity Challenge is to raise as much much as I can through your exceptional app so, I can change the life of others. Thank you for all that you do on behalf of me and the entire Tone It Up Community.
