Smart Fit Girls: The Heroes We Wished We Had 

As young girls, most of us battled with our own demons surrounding food, body image and community. In out adult years, most of us take step to rectify these broken relationships, but sometimes it takes years and we never are truly fixed. Chrissy Chard and Kellie Walters saw this scenario and asked the obvious question: Can we prevent young girls from ever having to go through what we all wish we didn’t? In today’s episode, we sit down with the two founders of Smart Fit Girls to discuss how SFG began, their own personal journeys and what is on the horizon for this incredible organization. By the end of this interview, you will agree with us that Chrissy and Kellie are the heroes we wished we had.
