We came. We networked. We Namaste’d.
The 2019 Mind, Body + Super Soul event, a private health and wellness mixer hosted by WAGS Redefined, took place just 15 minutes from Mercedes Benz Stadium (home of the Atlanta Falcons/Atlanta United) where the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams would face off the following day for Super Bowl 53. The purpose of the event was to: connect women in the WAGS community (wives and significant others of professional athletes/coaches), empower them through movement, and inspire conversations around total wellness and self love.

Yoga instructor Kymmi Cordovez and sports performance trainer Chelcie Scott lead the WAGS in a Hustle + Flow workout, which began with meditation and yoga, followed by strength training and cardio exercises.
The event was complimentary to WAGS Redefined members with a donation to Sporty Girls Inc., a nonprofit organization whose mission is to cultivate, enrich and challenge young, minority women to participate in swimming, soccer, tennis, golf, and lacrosse while developing and fostering lifestyle & academic skills. Sporty Girls was founded in 2006 by multimedia personality and former collegiate swimmer, Rashan Ali.
The afternoon event opened with dialogue about mental health and societal norms. Instructor Kymmi Cordovez encouraged WAGS to be open and share what they were really feeling in that moment, beyond the typical “I’m good.” Following a guided meditation, the ladies reflected for a second time, writing down any new thoughts. Several WAGS shared what they wrote following the meditation, speaking more freely about challenges, setbacks, and self love. The meditation circle was a real #Sisterhood moment!
Next, performance coach and trainer, Chelcie Scott, delivered a killer workout to the brave women in attendance. Scott, whose background is in Health & Human Physiology, challenged the body and mind with exercises such as: kettle bell swings, med ball slams, barbell lifts, and sprints! The ladies worked up a sweat and finished with a true sense of accomplishment!
Water was provided along with a healthy post-workout meal catered by Fit-N-Fuel Meals. Cute yet functional swag bags were gifted to attendees featuring: detox tea from Teami, a KIND bar, Rosewater and Lavender body wipes from Goodwipes, hair care by Rucker Roots, a portable vitamin/protein powder storage container by The Scoopie, self care stickers, and several discounts on partner brands! The event also featured a raffle giveaway with items such as:
