This Week's #fitphytWOW is...
Dahlia Seif from Egypt
Why we love her... This fit mama is full of positive energy! Dahlia took part in our #fitphytaroundtheworld campaign a few months ago, and it was an absolute treat following her posts as she journeyed across the world in her fitphyt leggings! From Moscow to Munich, this professional traveler explored cities we could only dream of visiting!
When Dahlia isn't trotting around the globe, you can find her working a sweat in the gym, or at home spending time with her gorgeous family. We love having Dahlia as part of our fitphyt family, and we are so inspired by her kind and passionate heart!
Each week, we celebrate a special lady from our community through the #fitphytwow initiative. We launched the fitphyt Woman of the Week to show some love to all of the supermoms, fashionista's, fitness queens and boss ladies who inspire others to live their best life - their hero life!
Here are some of the amazing ladies we've featured since our initiative launched, and we hope to see you on here, too! If you know of any lady who deserves some recognition (and a little love), you can nominate her by emailing our team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Read more on these ladies in our IG posts. Just search for #fitphyt wow ;)

Why we love her... We adore @sunnyphan42 for many reasons, one being her determined attitude! Sunny believes that life is more colorful when you have a healthy and positive mindset, and we couldn't agree more!
What started with a "yearning to wear pretty summer dresses" has turned into a complete lifestyle change for this incredible girl, who lost 20kg and gained a ton in self-respect. She says, "As silly as it sounds, my goal was to wear beautiful clothes. I love fashion but I could never find my size in Vietnam. I had to wear clothes from the men’s section. Now, fitness is my biggest passion because it motivates me to be the best version of myself, in all aspects!"
We love Sunny's story as it shows that your goals can be life-changing and have enormous impact, even if they may seem "silly" at the start. We sat down with Sunny to hear her full story. Have a read, we know this one will inspire you!
