CHEERFIT AMBASSADOR FEATURE: KAYLEIGH LUND
The CHEERFIT ambassador community is filled with leaders and motivators who all share a passion for fitness, love for cheering and drive to help inspire others.
Our ambassadors share with us their personal stories and obstacles they overcome along the way. We have an amazing community of athletes who fuel their passion and determination with the CHEERFIT lifestyle.
This week, we meet Kayleigh, an all-star cheerleader who opened up to the CHEERFIT community about her battle with Cystic Fibrosis and how she doesn’t let that define her life! We are so proud to present to you our ‘Ambassador of the Week Feature’ with Kayleigh Lund!
SHARE YOUR STORY WITH US. . .
I was born with Cystic Fibrosis also known as CF. This is a lung disease and there is currently no cure. Cheerleading and exercise is the main reason I am healthy to this day and my doctors will tell you that.
I do have to take a couple of breathing treatments every day, but that is better than hospital stays. I want to show the world not to let life’s setbacks keep you from what you love to do.
You have to over come it!
I have my days where I do not want to do my treatments, but I know you have to get through pain to get to the good – just like exercising!
I am so lucky to have found cheer at such an early age to keep me healthy! I want to be able to spread this to the world you can do anything you put your mind to!
I now have my full on the floor and working on speciality passes. I am also on three cheer teams, highest being a Senior level 4!
– CHEERFIT Ambassador Kayleigh Lund
