Looking for my 2020 POPFLEX POWERGIRLS!

By | Contests | 6 Comments

Hey guys!

We’re on the hunt for this year’s POPFLEX Powergirls and I really really want you to apply!! I’m sooo excited that submissions are officially OPEN and I get to meet this year’s group of amazing women who will represent POPFLEX so soon!

Wait, what’s a POWERGIRL?

POWERGIRLS are ambassadors and role models for POPFLEX, my activewear brand. This special group includes girls who have overcome obstacles and challenges in life, and have TRANSFORMED those struggles into their own personal superpower. POWERGIRLS are strong and resilient, but they also radiate positivity and inspiration to everyone they come in contact with. If you’re chosen as a POWERGIRL, you’ll rep everything behind the POPFLEX vibe.

What are the perks of being a POWERGIRL?

Hmmm where do I start because there are SO MANY!

First of all, every POWERGIRL gets their activewear closet sponsored for 1 whole year by POPFLEX!


This group is so special to me, so they get everything. You’ll get sports bras, leggings, yoga mats, fit planners – everything you need to stay motivated all year long. I looove to pamper the POWERGIRLS, and TRUST ME when I say I will hook you up – I HOOK YOU UP. Then you’ll take pics, and we’re gonna feature you rocking your outfits on the POPFLEX Instagram and website

ALSO – I’m taking all of the POWERGIRLS on an exclusive, all expenses-paid retreat! We will LIVE. IT. UP. Seriously, last year’s retreat was more amazing than I could have ever imagined and I know this year is going to be even better! We’ll bond, we’ll eat healthy food prepped by our very own private chef, we’ll work out and we’ll do fun photoshoots in absolutely GORGEOUS locations. Here’s a little taste of how amazing last year’s retreat was:

LOOK AT THIS PLACE! We went to Big Bear, CA last year. Where will we go this year!?

Umm… cutest cabin EVER.

Have you ever seen a cozier spot for Pilates?!

My heart almost bursted the moment I met all the POWERGIRLS in person.

Healthy meals, thanks to our private chef! Vegan options, paleo options, Whole30 options, gluten free options, dairy free options…I mean…the food was HEAVEN.

That face you make when you get FREE CLOTHES!

New clothes + magical backdrops = AMAZING photoshoots!

“I Don’t Sweat, I Sparkle” Insta...

Hey guys!

I can’t think of a single time when I feel more like a goddess than after a really tough workout that I just CRUSHEDDD. You know that on top of the world feeling? That euphoria? That post workout high? That GLOW. You know what I’m talking about.

I mean yeah I’m all sweaty but let’s be honest, sweat = little beads of accomplishment!

“I don’t sweat, I sparkle.”

I always think of this quote when I’m looking in the mirror after a tough workout – because it’s sooo true! But the post-workout sparkle isn’t all about that physical, sweaty glow. It’s about the inspiration that sparks inside us after we GET IT during a workout. You know the feeling. That feeling that you can seriously conquer anything… like BRING IT ON, WORLD! That sparkle is where it’s at. I love it. I LIVE FOR IT.

The idea of “I don’t sweat, I sparkle” actually inspired my first ever Instagram AR filter, called “Post-Workout Sparkle!” I really wanted to create a filter that would match the amazing mood that we feel post-workout. That’s when I feel the most beautiful, even if I’m dripping in sweat. Actually…the sweat gives an added bonus of a natural, dewy glow – and who doesn’t want that?! The Post-Workout Sparkle filter mimics that glow, brightening your face with a touch of sparkle. You have to try it!

Just go on my Instagram @blogilates and click on the 3rd grey icon from the left. You can only see it if you’re on mobile. It’s the icon with the face and sparkles. That’s where you’ll find my filter!

Make sure to save it so you can constantly use it!

With this filter, we can remind ourselves any time of day that we are total goddesses and that we’re unstoppable!

Have you tried it yet?! I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE!

Kinda loving this whole Instagram AR filter thing. Any ideas for the next AR filter design?! I wanna make more!
