Crusade – what a powerful word, movement, mission, whatever you may call it – that word packs some heat!
What follows is a heartfelt message from VFit Studio owner and founder, Rachele Jaegers:
This word represents a calling that was so electrically delivered to me from the universe over the past few weeks.
I eagerly invite you to click play on the message above and listen to my 10 minute call to action. I personally invite YOU to join this #CRUSADE we are on at VFit.
I simply cannot keep quiet any longer – there are some truths that must be brought to light now more importantly than ever as we shift back into a new season of life.
Please do not be so rushed to get back to “normal” that you find yourself in a place where your health and well being takes a back seat.
We have a duty to come out of this pandemic with the drive and dedication to take control of our physical and mental well being.
#CRUSADE – Coming out a year of a pandemic I feel rocked to my core to use our voice, our team, our passion to make a positive impact on the culture of health care.
I invite you to take a second to read out loud this powerful quote. Heck, stick it on a post it on your mirror like so many of us have done. This quote sums up about your personal ability to take control of your health:
“I make my health and well being a priority.”
We are more fired up than ever to empower the world that self care is not selfish, it is critical care.
We must stand together motivated, united and with the common value system that each one of us have so much control over our own health and well being.
You can not pass the power that you hold over your own health and well being to anyone else.
If this past year has taught us anything, it’s that self care is critical care – and it takes WORK to maintain.
As a collective we fear that so many have given up in their quest to put in the WORK to take care of their mind, body and spirit.
Yes it takes WORK to live a healthy lifestyle- a lot of work. But it’s the most important work that you will ever be charged with doing.
Don’t you teach your kids that anything worthwhile takes hard work, resilience and diligence. These very lessons are also the core of “health care”.
You can outsource much of your life, but getting in exercise – as our trainers like to continually remind and thank our members about – is NOT one of them.
You are in charge of your own workouts.
You are in charge of your own food.
You are in charge of what you allow into your mind, who you choose to engage with, what you watch on TV.
You are in charge of prioritizing sleep. You are in charge of what you feed your body.
You are in charge of so much more than we are at times left to believe.
So today we stand together at VFit ready to take on this #CRUSADE and we need as many to stand up and speak up.
DO NOT feel shamed for sharing your sweaty selfies, DO NOT worry what other’s think when you get excited and passionate about your fit fam. DO NOT downplay just how much effort and self respect goes into taking care of yourself.
To live to your fullest purpose and potential, it is not merely an option to take care of yourself, it is critical and needs to be a non-negotiable priority in your life.
It is never too late to take control of your own personal health and change that narrative in your head if you are not currently make YOU a priority.
You are deserving of taking control of your health and well being, please don’t discount the power that you my friend hold so much of!
This is our mission and our own personal crusade this season here at VFit and we can’t wait to see who rallies to the mission.
