I know I talk about these Tone It Up ladies a lot, but lets be real - what better girls to have a Girl Crush on than these two? They are literally the epitome of the perfect Girl Crush aka amazing role models for young women aka girl power! They started their own company, ToneItUp.com, and it continues to grow. It's been a success because they put in a lot of hard work and late nights into it. They also focus on what their followers want, such as the new Perfect Fit protein powder they just released. I haven't tried it, but I hear its delicious and affordable! Note to self: Get on that!
Karena and Katrina moved to California and randomly met after seeing each other all over the place - the gym, the grocery store, the coffee shop, etc. They instantly connected as they have tons in common including fitness and cats! No really - they love cats! See!
|How can you not love these "crazy cat ladies"?!|
Yes, I took the time to make this! No, I am not ashamed!
While I've never met these girls (though some of my Twitter friends have), their personalities shine through in their blog posts and YouTube videos. They seem like truly genuine, happy girls. Plus, with all of their success (partnerships with Oakley and SELF Magazine to name a couple) they still seem grounded and unfazed - just very grateful.
My favorite thing about them though is that they motivate and inspire women daily. Their blog, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest pages are full of positive words and images. I've never heard them say a negative comment ever! They also promote a healthy female body image. They encourage their followers to eat lean, clean, and green and to workout in the mornings because it kick starts one's metabolism. Karena and Katrina just want us all to be happy and healthy beach babes!
I can't wait to see what the future has in store for these two! I saw a secret tweet that mentioned some VERY exciting news for them this year. For some reason they haven't mentioned it yet, so I don't want to spill the beans. But, it's big and awesome and I cannot wait!
Is there anyone that I've left out of my Girl Crush series that you think needs mentioning? Let me know in the comments below!
