"Fitness isn't about winning athletic contests or having the buffest of bodies," says Janiss Garza, editor-in-chief of the popular fitness web site All Spirit Fitness (http://www.allspiritfitness.com). "Fitness is about achieving health and well being. When we read about everyday people who get fit - sometimes accomplishing it in the face of substantial obstacles - we're inspired to pursue a healthier lifestyle ourselves."
This is why All Spirit Fitness is searching for people who want to talk about their fitness successes. "I want our readers to know that we support their efforts at healthy living," says Ms. Garza. "All Spirit Fitness is about attaining your own personal best, not about beating out your competition." Here are some examples of the type of success stories All Spirit Fitness wants: a 75-pound weight loss that inspires someone become a personal trainer; somebody overcoming asthma and running a 5K; a 65-year-old woman who gets in shape and motivates her kids and grandkids to start exercise programs. "These are the people we should look up to," asserts Ms. Garza. "The sports pros and Olympians have their place, but they're out of our league. We want to hear from our own league to find realistic role models."
Ms. Garza plans to pick 3 to 4 people a year to profile in All Spirit Fitness. Those chosen will be interviewed and featured on the All Spirit Fitness homepage and in the biweekly newsletter.
