Today’s guest is Grace Gallagher, an entrepreneur, lover of all things fitness, and a new mom to a baby boy. Grace is a former athlete having swam and played soccer all growing up to swimming throughout high school and college. Once she entered the corporate world, fitness took a back seat until she and her husband relocated to Charlotte from Chicago. Knowing nobody, she turned back to fitness as a way to seek personal connections in her new city. When she could find no central resource for highlighting all of the diverse fitness offerings in Charlotte, she began creating one through her blog. After visiting and blogging about more than 100 different fitness studios throughout the city, she decided to create SweatNET. SweatNET is a community of fitness lovers, new comers to Charlotte and now 12 other cities, with 16 new cities coming on board in the next few months. SweatNET hosts events each month that are FREE to members, and they offer discounts at almost every fitness studio in town. Check them out at www.sweatnet.com
Now get ready for an incredible conversation with Grace, learn about her, and get some great advice about finding life, work, health balance by giving yourself grace and asking others for what you need.

Cel Thompson Smart, the host of the Be Amazing Podcast, wears many hats as a mom, wife, career woman, fitness professional, and community leader. Her life mantra of “Be Amazing,” through all these roles led her to creating the ‘Be Amazing’ fitness showcase and apparel line to celebrate women in fitness. She also created the Men in Bras runway show—both to raise money for those fighting breast cancer. Celia’s hope for these ventures is that they help other women across the world identify and celebrate what makes them uniquely amazing.
