Put Me In Coach … I\’m Ready To Play!

Guts? Glory? Fun?

Oh yeah! I’ve got ’em all and I’m ready to take on the challenge!

4all apparel by jofit, a tennis, golf and fitness apparel company that specializes in creating high quality performance attire designed by women athletes for women athletes, is offering TEN (!) bloggers the fantastic opportunity to join the Team 4all roster!

Now this is a team that I would LOVE to join!

4all apparel is a SEXY line of athletic wear that helps you to look and feel your best while you work to be your best. The clothing is comfortable and flattering too! As part of my application, they want to know all about me, so I’m throwing my hat into the ring and hoping I get picked….

My Hat!

I’m Janice, the self appointed Fitness Cheerleader and I’m a mom of 3 beautiful princesses:

Brooke (3), Amber (2 months) and Sierra (5)

I strive to be a positive role model for my girls and for everyone else I meet. I encourage everyone to TRY – I strongly believe you can achieve what you believe! Want to run a marathon – go ahead – do it! Who cares if you have to walk half of it, JUST DO IT!


This year I’m gaining power over the post-partum depression that has crippled me for the past five years – how? By taking time to CHOOSE ME! Fruits, veggies and EXERCISE are all proven to play a vital role in mental health and this year I’m beating up my personal inner demons by taking time for myself.

Forget the scale – weight doesn’t matter, it’s your smile that makes you beautiful, and this year I’m working on doing what it takes to make me smile and to encourage everyone else to stop and think about what makes them smile. So I’ve set some running goals, because running is my happy pill, and have already registered for all of these races:

  • April – Harry’s Spring Run-Off 8K
  • May – Mississauga Marathon 10K with my pals Tina and Roz (Roz is making the trip all the way from the other side of the world aka-Australia, to run with me so I better get to that starting line injury free!)
  • End of May – Toronto Women’s Half-Marathon
  • Mid-October – Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Half-Marathon

Sure this means I have to start back at square one… I just had a baby after all, but I can do it – and if I can do it, so can you!

Ready for a cold training run!

I feel that I’d be a GREAT fit for Team 4all because I have determination and passion – fitness is an integral part of my life, just ask my kids about their favourite game with mommy… Fitness Class! Oh… and I’m a golfer too – even though I really get my money’s worth out of a round – I get to hit the ball over 12o times when I play!

I could use your help, dear readers!

I want to be on the Team 4all Roster, and I need your support. Could you all take a moment and leave your support for me? You can do this by doing any of the following:

  1. Leaving a comment saying why I’d be a good fit for Team 4all
  2. Liking 4all on Facebook and sharing on their wall why I’d be a good fit
  3. Follow @4allbyjofit and Tweet:
  4. Hey @4allbyjofit! Pick Janice – the Fitness Cheerleader (@fitcheerldr) for Team4all, she’s an excellent role model! http://goo.gl/fb/aG4HI

    Well, if I didn’t support you, I wouldn’t be a very good mother now would I? Of course you have my support, not just because you’re my daughter but because I think you would be perfect for it! You are an inspiration to all your followers!
