CHEERFIT AMBASSADOR FEATURE: MORGAN ANTONAZZO
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 Morgan – a cheerleader who reminds us how powerful self confidence can be, and if you truly believe you can do something – you will! We are proud to share with you our ‘Ambassador of the Week Feature’ with Morgan Antonazzo!
CAN YOU SHARE WITH US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR JOURNEY AND HOW YOU GOT TO WHERE YOU ARE TODAY?
As a freshmen at 14 years old, I was pulled up on to Varsity cheer at my school. It was one of the most encouraging, most driving moment s of my entire life . I was surrounded by such amazing atheletes that it pushed me to better myself.
I had come from a pop warner team that had only done preperties to now doing one legs and 360s. It was a huge change. Being so it had its ups and downs, but my advice to all young girls is to push yourself. Never belittle yourself because you are one of the younger girls or let anyone stop you from reaching your full potential. Through all the injuries I faced my freshmen year, I came out of it as such a stronger person.
Though I was the youngest and wasn’t full of knowledge, I didn’t let anyone keep me from striving.
Being younger sometimes has its set backs, but I always pushed myself and never let anyone say “oh well, you can learn it next year” or “well you’re a freshmen, you can’t learn it” because at the end of the day I could do anything I wanted to. I think it’s super important for everyone to find that spark of confidence in themselves, to make sure you make it to your full potential, and to never let anyone stop you . . .
– CHEERFIT Ambassador Morgan Antonazzo
ARE YOU INVOLVED IN ANY VOLUNTEER OR NONPROFIT?
I am involved with my school’s United Nations. We help local organizations and especially around the holidays we make sure to make every family has a holiday to its full potential. I also sponsored a family at a rough time by making dinner for them! It was a family of 5 and it was a large meal, but I put in time and effort to make sure that they had food on the table at such a rough time.
I’m also a lifeguard at a nursing home. It’s a great environment being around elderly people. They are full of knowledge and have been in tons of situations before, therefore they always have great advice. I also guard so they can swim and enjoy themselves.
Some of my accomplishments include: maintaining my spot on varsity, pushing to get my backhandspring back after my neck injury freshmen year, getting my lifeguard certification, and helping my mom with her bow business.
HOW HAS BEING AN AMBASSADOR HELPED YOU?
Being an ambassador has helped me to become a stronger base and has encouraged me to start tumbling again.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART ABOUT BEING A CHEERFIT AMBASSADOR?
That I can share fitness with others, and teach them how important it is outside of cheer to work out! It helps tons when it comes to practice and getting new skills and stunting.
WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO TELL OTHERS WHO WANT TO BECOME A CHEERFIT AMBASSADOR?
I would say totally do it! It’s a fun easy way to share such a great company. I’ve talked to so many people and have gotten advice on specific things!
WHAT 3 THINGS ARE ALWAYS IN YOUR CHEER BAG?
My huge water bottle, chapstick and my good luck bows / tags.
FAVORITE SONG TO JAM OUT TO DURING A SWEAT SESH:
Child’s Play – Drake
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE EXERCISE?
Anything with your core!!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE?
“Lux in tenebris” meaning in Latin “light in darkness”. I always believe everything happens for a reason whether it be positive or negative, hence light in darkness.
FUN FACTS ABOUT ME:
I have ridden horses for 6 years! I’ve stopped because of my busy cheer schedule.
I am hoping to cheer in college! I love, love, love, down south and hope to go to college and live down there!!
I love CHEERFIT! And I love the fact I can do the workouts anywhere. I always do them at work during my breaks or when people aren’t swimming.
Thank you so much for sharing your story Morgan! That is one of our favorite quotes too – we also believe that everything really does happen for a reason and there is a bigger meaning behind all things that we might not see at first! We love how confident you are and the message you send to your fellow ambassadors, to keep up that confidence and go after what you want! We are proud to have you as a CHEERFIT Ambassador 🙂
