Happy National Compliment Day!
January 24 is National Compliment Day. While it's easy to recognize the physical beauty of others, the currency of "looks" is not nearly as valuable as the fabric of a person. Miss Fit Academy is not just a hollow fitness studio where you come to sweat out that cookie from earlier. It's a family. Miss Fit Academy's family of students is formed by ladies from all backgrounds and all walks of life. These women are just as (if not more) beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside. They work every day to better themselves through fitness, discipline and artistic expression.
It's too easy to recognize that someone curled their hair or nailed their cat eye. We must empower, encourage and engage with one another. This National Compliment day, let's focus on uplifting each other by recognizing how awesome our fellow ladies are from the inside out rather than the outside in.... but how? Don't worry, we've got you covered.
