This thing began as a love for chili, especially on those colder days. What was once just a small effort for change has evolved into a lasting movement to foster more than ourselves by supporting our community. 2019 is looking to be a great year for SouLift Fitness, the Chili Cook-off, and especially the Beaver County Humane Society! Based on our success the last couple of years, our goal this time is to raise $3000!
Life is generally better with a solid teammate. In gym or life, having a partner who inspires you, motivates you, pushes you to do your best even when you aren’t “feeling it” that day, a constant spotter who helps you get that last rep out even when you’re still shaking from that last set.
This month SouLift Celebrates training and life partners Kristin and Todd Clayton.
SouLift Celebrates: Jessie Črnjarič
Jessie can be quiet but her presence fills the room. She doesn’t need to say much but you know she’s there.
When we first met she was shy. Her active lifestyle has always kept her reasonably fit but she knew that building strength would help her be able to do even more with more ease. As her strength grows, so does her capability to do more of the things she loves.
Jessie is the mother of 2 boys, owner of Foster Design Studio and is the in-house photographer and a creative consultant for SouLift Fitness.

At SouLift Fitness it all starts with the consultation. We meet, get to know you a little bit, learn about your life and goals and work together for a plan for success.
When we met Elizabeth there was already fire inside of her. Her consistent work ethic and ambition is contagious. She is driven to succeed in life and business.
Elizabeth emulates everything that SouLift stands for and we are PROUD to call her one of us.
Elizabeth, we salute you.
Just for a minute consider something…
Consider who you want to be on March 2nd.
If you were at the very top of your health and well-being, what would you feel like? What would your family members and friends say about you? How much energy would you have?
So fast-forward and paint yourself a picture: What do you look like on March 2nd?
That’s what the Whole Life Challenge will do for you when you join our team and make a commitment to replace a few bad habits with good habits. You can learn more about it here.
Once you've checked it out, you can join our team here: TEAM SOULIFT. For six weeks, starting on January 20th and Ending March 2nd, we’ll work on all the areas of our well-being—like nutrition, mobility, and exercise, for starters.
The Whole Life Challenge is basically a game that challenges us to “try on” a whole life of health and fitness for six weeks. As a team, we can win points and lose points (hopefully we’ll win more than we lose). And the prize is … Well, it’s who you are on March 2nd.
I hope you’ll watch the videos and join my team. In fact, I WANT you on my team!
