Meet the GirlCrewer #73 Evangeline Han
Last week we chatted with Yoga teacher, Karen Davies, and this week we’ve decided to stick with the healthy lifestyle theme but have given the globe a quick spin and have stuck a pin in Oklahoma. Evangeline Han, is a coach with Team High Voltage, and is all about helping others to achieve their health and lifestyle goals. Evangeline knows firsthand the difficulty that many of us face in getting started on that journey, so has made it her mission to make it easier for others. “Leading a healthy lifestyle is so important for me, and for years, I struggled with finding the best way to do it. I’d work out 2-3 hours every day, but I was in pain all the time. I couldn’t step out of my car, climb the stairs, or even squat, without grimacing. Every morning, I’d stand in the hot shower for 15 minutes of pain relief. Every evening, I’d sit in bed with ice packs on my legs and ankles.” While this pain was tiring, for Evangeline this wasn’t even the worst of it. With energy at an all time low, she soon hit a fitness plateau and all her hard work wasn’t yielding the results she’d expected. Instead of letting this get to her, she changed her mind set and her approach by joining a fitness accountability team. “The past two months has been nothing short of amazing. Losing weight has never been my goal. Instead, I’ve always wanted to be lean and toned. Since joining Team High Voltage, with the tools, support, and accountability of my teammates, I’ve lost fat and gained muscle. But, the most important part is that I am now confident with myself. I have amazing positive energy every day. I’m eating clean and leading a healthy lifestyle.” Clearly this has paid off, as Evangeline is now a coach and helping others to achieve their health and lifestyle goals, be they girl bosses or busy mums, or both. “My job is fulfilling because my main and biggest goal is to help people become healthy and fit. I am on a fitness journey as well, and that is helping, not hindering my coach life. So, reach out to me, and I would love to talk more with you about your goals and the opportunities that are available for you!” We’ve all had that time in our lives when we wished we were healthier, and more active, and we all know how tough that can be. Having someone like Evangeline fight your corner can make your journey a little easier, so if you’re based in Oklahoma make sure you get in touch with this fantastic lady.
1. What is the best thing about your role?
I get to help people every day and talk about the topics I’m most passionate about – clean eating, fitness, and a healthy lifestyle! I also love that I am equipped with the tools to help others find the right fitness program. My team consists of amazing girl bosses who are crushing their fitness and business goals and their confidence and support is so inspiring for me!
2. What did you find most challenging about it?
I love my job so much, and whenever someone used to ask me about it, I would practically word vomit every good thing I can think of about my job. I’ve gotten better at not doing that, but I still get very excited when I have the opportunity to share with someone how awesome helping people is.
3. What is your proudest work related achievement to date?
My team emphasizes personal development a lot. Working on personally developing my mental strength and myself is part of what I get to do, and I’m proud to say that as a result, I am now a more confident and positive person.
4. What would be your one tip to others who want to get involved in this industry?
Find a team that will provide support, accountability, and help propel you towards achieving your goals.
5. What would be your motto in life, and in work?
Give my best in everything. When I do so, I feel satisfied that I have done well, no matter the results.
6. What’s your favourite thing about being in GirlCrew?
I love how GirlCrew is a community of women who gather together for girl time and fun! There is just something so incredibly inspiring and empowering when a group of women gather together.
