What inspires you?

Seeing athletes in our gym succeed at a movement they have been struggling with. Getting their first muscle up, stringing double unders, or completing tasks they did not think they could.

What could you do for Endurance if you became the Face of Endurance?

Majority of my wardrobe is wearing t-shirts. I would be a walking billboard here in Central Virginia. I love to compete. I had signed up for several competitions prior to this virus uprooting all our lives. My go to competition shirt is the Slammin Bars and Breaking PR's.

Several years ago, you helped a good friend and coach (Austin Bennett) get to the Granite Games. That same year you also went above and beyond brining me a new pair of Nano to a local competition here in Lynchburg. You have been amazing customer service and care about the community at large. I would like the opportunity to help grown your brand became you have helped me and people close to me so much.

What inspires you?

My son, husband and friends

What could you do for Endurance if you became the Face of Endurance?

I can let everyone know how amazing Endurance Apparel is. I do a lot of traveling (though not recently:() and can spread the word to shop small.

Why should we select you to be our Face of Endurance?

Health and wellness have always been a huge part of my life but it was hard for me to keep up with a consistent program. My husband dragged me to a CrossFit gym 7 years ago to try it out and after the first day I was hooked. I now have my L1 certificate as well as CrossFit Gymnastics and i99 Gymnastics certificates. I had my son 13 months ago and it was CrossFit and the desire to continue to improve and strengthen my body and mind that has made me even fitter than I was before I gave birth. Wearing athletic clothes all the time is a HUGE must and I love Fleo, Born Primitive, JUNK, Vull, and of course Endurance Apparel. I am fiercely loyal and dedicated once I believe and pursue in something and I have a solid following on Facebook and Instagram. I also want to say I really love you guys and everyone is always super nice when you come and visit my gym (Tidewater) and you always make me want to buy all the things :)

What inspires you?

People who push to reach their full potential and those that defeat all odds to get to where they want to go!

What could you do for Endurance if you became the Face of Endurance?

I want to see you guys grow. I want to see you succeed. That takes me getting your name out, sharing with my followers, sharing with everyone in my gym, sharing with all of my employees. I would work together with you as a team to grow through promotions, giveaways, and sharing how much you guys have been an amazing company to work with. Everyone should be using the gym candy store!

Why should we select you to be our Face of Endurance?

As I stated in my last answer, I want you to grow and succeed. Together I want to stop at nothing short to make that happen. I work extremely hard at anything I want and I'm very determined. I've already beat a lot of odds and I always encourage others to become bigger and better. It's not about being motivated, it's about discipline to unlock your full potential.

Meet Brittany White

What inspires you?

Movement, in all forms! The world is full of so many ways to move in creative ways.

What could you do for Endurance if you became the Face of Endurance?

I truly think that I could help women in our community realize THEY are strong, too. Fitness can be overwhelming and scary to those who just started their journey and I want to help every man and woman feel like enough to go after what makes them feel happy and strong.

Why should we select you to be our Face of Endurance?

I have a very well diverse background when it comes to fitness. I lost almost 40 pounds a few years ago and have since spent a good majority of my life trying to be the best I physically can. When the world isn't going crazy I like to compete in obstacle course races (and normal runs) across the country. I've participated in 3 Tough Mudders, 4 Spartan races (to include a trifecta), a Bonefrog series, and countless local runs. I've previously been an instructor for kickboxing, kayaking, and rope climbing and love teaching others how to be active. In my spare time I enjoy anything outdoors - hiking, paddle boarding, kayaking, snow skiing, golfing, camping... you name it. As a full-time working woman, I find that it can be challenging to find the balance in life and thoroughly enjoy helping others find their inner strength.

What inspires you?

I'm inspired every day by those who face personal adversity and still choose to keep moving forward and fight for what they want. It doesn't have to be the most grand moment of courage, but a simple choice that propels you in the right direction. I'm inspired by athletes who fight through an injury and don't give up, no matter how devastating. I'm inspired by struggling mom friends of mine who do everything in their power to give their children a good life. And I'm inspired by the person at the very bottom, who has the courage to try, no matter what anyone says about their decision. (Leaving a job, going for a run for the first time, or simply writing goals down each day.) It's so easy to give up when your head says things aren't worth it, but when someone leads with their heart, so many wonderful and rewarding things can happen.

What could you do for Endurance if you became the Face of Endurance?

If I became the Face of Endurance I could promote loads of gear through positive, motivational, and fun social content. Although I may not have the largest following just yet, it is growing and my social accounts have allowed me to create loads of local connections. (This community is so great!) During this difficult time, clients, friends, and even internet strangers are looking to me for fitness advice, and that includes gear recommendations! I would continue to encourage people to shop local and support small business!

Why should we select you to be our Face of Endurance?

I believe in supporting local businesses, and I LOVE THE ENDURANCE CREW! I wish I had known about Endurance much earlier in my training, and I would love I would love to help advertise for this awesome business to help spread the word to other locals who may be in the dark! As a trainer, I also believe in showing the fun side of fitness. Things don't have to be so serious all the time! I feel that I can contribute fitness content with a personal touch that people can identify with, and I can do all of this while promoting Endurance. Additionally, I love how Endurance gives back to the community, and I want to give back to a business that does so much good for others. I understand that the winner will be promoting products, but I'd also really love to promote and encourage others to participate in these community events for great causes!

What inspires you?

Growth. Just seeing where I am now & where I started 2 years ago mentally and physically through crossfit has been so eye opening. We all have hidden potential beneath everything if we’re willing to fight for it!

What could you do for Endurance if you became the Face of Endurance?

I can provide a positive and hard working attitude for the brand. The job is never done and I embody that with the work I put in everyday

Why should we select you to be our Face of Endurance?

I am a hard working, dedicated athlete. Not only to my performance, but for the success of others I coach as well. I work tirelessly to be the best version of myself for me and for others. And that includes mental and physical capabilities. I would use the same sense of dedication in my personal efforts as I would for this brand.
