CHEERFIT AMBASSADOR FEATURE: KLOEY & CHRISTY ARNETT
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.
In honor of Mother’s Day, we are featuring one of our awesome CHEERFIT mom and daughter duos! Presenting one of our very first CHEERFIT ambassadors, Christy Arnett and daughter Kloey in this week’s Ambassador of the Week feature!
CAN YOU SHARE WITH US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR JOURNEY AND HOW YOU GOT TO WHERE YOU ARE TODAY?
Christy – I started cheering in middle school through high school and then I cheered at The Ohio State Univeristy. During that time I also started coaching high school and all star cheerleading. Fitness and cheerleading have always been a part of my life and something that I have enjoyed. It was not only fun for me but I enjoyed having a positive impact on kids. All cheerleaders and coaches have struggles and I think that is the challenge of the sport and what makes us better is how we work through and overcome those struggles.
My daughter Kloey started taking gymnastics as soon as she could walk at 13 months old. From there it was in her blood to be a cheerleader (her dad and I both cheered at The Ohio State University and coached all star cheerleading together). Finally, at the age of 3 I let her tryout for a tiny team and she has loved every minute of it since. It’s hard learning new skills and routines at a young age plus dealing with “grown up” pressures of competing but as a mom/coach I really try to keep everything age appropriate for her.
We try to keep it positive and keep encourging her to be her own person and work through her own struggles at her own pace.
It’s really all about balance and having fun.

There’s so much more to being a cheerleader these days and we really care about the athlete.

BEING AN AMBASSADOR HELPED ME. . .
Kloey – get stronger and challenge me do something active everyday even if I am in the gym or not. I know others are counting on me and looking at me to help them get better too.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART ABOUT BEING A CHEERFIT AMBASSADOR?
Christy – I love being a part of something that encourages young athletes to better themselves not only during their season/training, but in life in general. Making these healthy changes a habit at a young age is going to stick with them as them grow into adults as well. The love of health, fitness and being the best person you can be will only keep spreading.
Kloey – I love working out and encouraging others to get healthier and stronger. Plus its fun that I get to workout with my mom.
WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO TELL OTHER PEOPLE WHO WANT TO BECOME A CHEERFIT AMBASSADOR?
Kloey – It’s a lot of fun and you get to meet a lot of new great people from all different places that love cheer and fitness too.
WHAT 3 THINGS ARE ALWAYS IN YOUR CHEER BAG?
Kloey – Always in my Rebel Dream Bag are my Cheer Shoes, Tissues and hairspray
Christy – Always in my Rebel Dream bag are chapstick, Rebel Charger and business cards
FAVORITE SONG TO JAM OUT TO DURING A SWEAT SESH:
All About That Base
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE EXERCISE?
Kloey – Burpees
Christy – I am also a Beachbody Coach and own Rock Star FIIT. I focus on quick workouts for busy moms and workouts that include moms and kids. It is great to get the whole family involved and Kloey and I have been doing these workouts since she’s been a baby. With 3 very busy kids, it’s hard to find the time to workout. All of my workouts are 30 minutes or less!
I was one of the very first CHEERFIT Ambassadors and now my daughter Kloey is one too. We are so excited to be on this journey together spreading the love of cheer and fitness and encouraging moms/daughtes/athletes to make themselves stronger.
