Yesterday was a really exciting day, because the VIVA400 Awards took place in Amsterdam. Aranka en Laura dressed up for the occasion and went to the College Hotel in Amsterdam. After nearly 39.000 votes were counted and the judges had given their final vote, it was finally time to announce the winners. So many inspiring women gathered together to raise their glass. The category 'Online', which we were nominated in, was the last one of the evening. But definitely not the least, because we FREAKING WON!!! Of course everyone says it, but we honestly did not expect to win. We had some truly great competitors like Yara Mitchels and Negin Mirsaleh.
This is why the VIVA Judges nominated #FITGIRLCODE:"Aranka and Christel, you have a great online community. Especially original, because you can find a lot about beauty, fashion and food on the internet but presenting a healthy lifestyle online is very innovative. We like the fact that #FITGIRLCODE shows a countermovement. You focus on a active and healthy lifestyle instead of the beauty ideal of just being thin. Real pure, natural and passionate women, that's where VIVA also stands for. #FITGIRLCODE connects likeminded people, not just trough website and webshop, but also offline, with sport challenges and your own sustainable sports brand and Jogha sportswear. In a very accessible way, you help women to feel comfortable in their own skin. They benefit from your knowledge. Keep going!"
Dear Fit Girls around the world, a special thanks to you! We couldn't have done it without you guys. Thank you so much for voting for us, but more importantly for inspiring us everyday. Let's make the world a happier and fitter place one Fit Girl at a time.
