I'm a FFB Ambassador! Now what does that mean...
What is Fit For Broadway?
“Fit for Broadway’s mission is to inspire wellness as a way of life for performers. The code of performance is showing up fully — physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. We believe everyone should play the lead in their life. We strive to create a community of examples where everyone can learn and grow as a collective.”
What does it mean to be an ambassador?
“To encourage wellness as a way of life!” Connecting with other artists all around the world and supporting them in their endeavors!
How has it helped me?
FFB is MOTIVATING: You know when you’re working out at the gym…but your music is on shuffle…so the beat keeps changing between songs…so it kinda throws you off your workout rhythm? That’s why I changed to podcasts! ;) FFB has a podcast! It completely changed my mindset at the gym. Instead of thinking “I’m at the gym to change these things” I started thinking “I’m at the gym because I’m working on these things and thinking about my goals.”
FFB is INSPIRING: Do you ever think of Broadway and think the performers are so amazing and you forget that they’re real people and you feel like you’ll never make it? (hello, run-on sentence) It HAPPENS. FFB has a section on their website called “Features” of interviews with performers! It’s a great reminder that we’re all human… :)
FFB is INFORMATIVE: I got a HUGE wakeup call with FFB and I am so glad I did. I had no idea how important it was to actually treat your body like a temple until I started working professionally. It’s one thing in college to push your body through tech week running on coffee alone to perform for 1 weekend. It’s another knowing how to pace yourself for an 8 or 10 show week. Knowing how much sleep actually benefits you, what foods make your voice sound a lil funky the next day, etc.
Broadway inspires me to BE...
My healthiest and best self.
Unapologetically me in auditions!
Always working on something creative.
Tuned in to how I'm treating myself.
Aware of putting my physical and mental needs first.
Supportive of other artists.
What to expect from me:
FFB will be sending out ways to get involved further. Although they’re in NYC and I’m in FL, I’m going to do everything I can to be involved through the power of social media!
As a peer: “Find your inner spotlight” Need a gym buddy? Scared of trying a new class? Have you been auditioning? Not feeling motivated? Is your inner voice being a pest this week? Anything you need, let’s get together. Because 9 times out of 10…I’m needing the same thing! Let’s get coffee and lift each other up!
