February 25 at 6 pm: Celebrate Black History Month with Sweat Lit X aSweatLife

Happy Black History Month! Join Sweat Lit X aSweatLife on February 25th for a total body workout with Afrobeat/Caribbean inspired music. Build strength, have fun and sweat with Master Trainer and aSweatLife Ambassador Kaylla Spinks.

Black History Month has been around in the United States since 1976, and after last summer’s Black Lives Matter protests and the murder of George Floyd, we’re being more thoughtful than ever in how we’re called to commemorate the month (and how we act and learn the other eleven months of the year).

That’s especially important to us as leaders and creators in wellness. aSweatLife is a woman-led organization with a renewed focus on inclusivity within the fitness, health, and wellness industries. As an organization that has always valued diversity, we realize we can do more. In 2020, the Better with Friends Committee was born – compiled of aSweatLife ambassadors who are inspired to integrate diversity in health and fitness.

About Kelly Matkovich

Kelly fell in love with the aSweatLife family when she became an ambassador in 2016. Through goal-setting and the exposure to trying new things, she made some pretty big career goals for herself. In 2017, she quit her full time job as a Director of Meetings and events for a Women’s Cancer Association to pursue the crazy world of entrepreneurship/contract work/working multiple jobs and a career in fitness. During this time, she got her NASM personal training certificate and became a group fitness instructor while also earning certifications in yoga sculpt and health coaching. She traveled around the world executing large conferences and started a wellness events company within the hospitality industry. Through this very exciting but very bumpy new career path, she always had aSweatLife ambassadors there to support her along the way. Now, as the Senior Director of Communities, her focus is to grow with this amazing group of ambassadors and inspire them to reach their BHAGS through uniquely crafted experiences, events and community.
