Success Stories

“It was definitely one of the best experiences in my life because it completely changed me for the best.”

Shayna | WAC 2022 + Summit Sisters 2023

“It was a great experience. I’m so grateful that I was able to participate. Before Wellfit Girls, I wasn’t making the best decisions and I was getting myself into trouble. Now I am more assertive. If I know someone is making a decision and it’s not in my best interest, I can say no and stay on the right track.

Dallise | Summit Sisters 2020, 2021

As a participant in Summit Sisters I learned so much about myself and made many strong connections with the other girls. I was challenged to be the best version of myself every session whether it was fitness or leadership. The Summit Sisters program is truly transformative.

Summit Sisters taught me that I need to continue my journey of finding myself along with living for myself rather than living for the other people in my life. It’s taught me to let myself feel my emotions rather than just holding them in and hoping they go away. It has also given me a community that no matter how lost I feel in life I can always come back and be welcomed with open arms. Wellfit Girls has become a home and the girls and leaders from all programs and years have become a part of my family.

Andrea | Summit Sisters 2018, 2020, 2021

Wellfit Girls pushed me outside of my comfort zone. I never knew what to expect every time we would meet and it always made me nervous. Pushing through these anxious feelings and trying something new really motivated me. I am now eager to take any opportunity thrown at me.

Ashley | Summit Sisters 2019

“One thing I apply every day is the concept of keeping off the masks that hide my true self from the world. When I let go of the negative energy I can spread positivity and be a leader.”

Helena | Wellfit Girls 2017

“This program has definitely impacted me in such a positive way. When I started out I couldn’t even run a mile without stopping, but through hard work and dedication, I can now run five miles without stopping. This is hands down one of the greatest experiences.”

Lily | Wellfit Girls 2017

“As a result of Wellfit Girls I no longer feel pressured to have everyone like me, which has allowed me to be more peaceful. I am happy with myself, my personality, my identity and who I am.”

Avorie | Wellfit Girls 2017

“Before Wellfit Girls, I didn’t have much confidence in myself and my capabilities. Through this program I learned that with hard work I can reach any goal no matter how challenging or what anyone says.”

Zya | Wellfit Girls 2017

“My confidence has skyrocketed. Once I reached the summit I realized that I am physically capable of doing anything. I want to make a difference in my community and in this world and Wellfit Girls has given me the confidence to pursue that dream.”

Jerrica | Wellfit Girls 2017

“Wellfit Girls Program has allowed me to ‘find myself.’ I have become more confident, more motivated, more willing to work and volunteer and more open to talking to people (strangers and friends alike). Not only this, but my fitness level has increased greatly. I actually enjoy working out and find myself more inclined to make healthier choices. Being in Peru helped me become more humble and caring towards others. I am now very appreciative of what I have and what I’ve achieved. I am able to make friends easier and relate to more people by sharing my experience with them.”

Ashley | Wellfit Girls 2016

“No words can describe how much I love this program! I was a shy girl who didn’t love herself, but this program taught me to be a strong leader who loves everything about myself. My goal is now to go all around the world and help get kids medication. It was all because of this program! As I was going up the mountain I left behind fear and letting people define me. Once I reached the summit I felt like I can do anything. Now I can make a difference in this world.”

Isabel | Wellfit Girls 2016

“My experience with Wellfit Girls really did change my life. I made so many new friends and experienced so many things that really impacted me positively. I found that the greatest take away I had was through the service, and learning about healthy and efficient ways to interact and communicate with the people around me. I really enjoyed Wellfit Girls and really have only great things to say about it. I know that my family and friends have seen positive changes in my behavior, attitude, and general lifestyle over the past months too. Once a Wellfit girl, always a Wellfit girl!”

Katie | Wellfit Girls 2016

“This experience has given me a whole new outlook on life. I am more aware of my surroundings including people, cultures, environments, and behaviors. I have learned to appreciate what I have and that my true passion is helping those less fortunate. I am more accepting of other cultures and backgrounds and am interested in learning more about them. I now know that I can do anything I set my mind to and that goals are more meaningful when accomplished with the group. The trek up the mountain has shown me that I am strong enough to get through anything I want. I want to continue to stay active in this program because I want other teen girls to be able to experience this once in a lifetime chance just like I did.”

Rachel | Wellfit Girls 2016

““Wellfit Girls was a great experience for me. It helped me open up and come out of my comfort zone. This program has helped me to improve my confidence and speak up more. I learned a lot about myself and made many great friends in this program. Climbing the mountain showed me that with dedication and hard work, I can accomplish anything.”

Gina | Wellfit Girls 2016

“This experience has changed me for the better because it introduced me to amazing girls from all walks of life, and introduced me to the importance of volunteering and helping others. From now on, I want to help people and volunteer my time to others not as fortunate because its always important to be grateful.”

 Trixie | Wellfit Girls 2015

“As I stood on the peak of the mountain and threw the rock over the edge I let go of who and what was holding me back from reaching my full potential as a leader and a friend. I couldn’t have made it through the journey without the love and support of all my Wellfit sisters.”

Kristen | Wellfit Girls 2015

“This has been the best program I have been a part of and I would love to come back next year and mentor the girls and maybe even eventually to become a leader for Wellfit Girls!”

Natalie | Wellfit Girls 2015

“The most significant impact the trek and hike up Machu Picchu had on me was once we were on the top of Machu Picchu Mountain after the long 3 day hike and the almost impossible endless flight of rock stairs up Machu Picchu, I realized I can do anything… anything I wanted bad enough and worked hard for, I can do it.”
