POWERFUL FEMALE STORIES THAT SHOW US THE STRENGTH IN WE.

OUR RYKÄ TRIBE HAS NEVER BEEN FIERCER. This season, we’re shining a light on two incredible women who not only inspire us with their fitness prowess, but, like us, are also big believers in women supporting women, body positivity, and equal opportunity.

OUR MADE FOR WOMEN FIT IS NOT JUST A MANTRA BUT A WAY OF LIFE THAT UNITES US. AND TRIBERS CHLOE BELLE AND RYANN TORRERO ARE LIVING IT TO THEIR CORE.

“THERE IS NO ONE LIKE YOU. WHEN WE CONSTANTLY COMPARE OURSELVES TO OTHERS, WE SOMETIMES LOSE TRACK OF THE FACT THAT THERE IS NOBODY ELSE LIKE US, AND THAT’S SO EMPOWERING.”

For Chloe, strength and empowerment comes from embracing your true self and listening to your body. Her lifelong passion for Latin dance and the intense pressure she felt to “look a certain way” led to a struggle with an eating disorder and other health issues.

It wasn’t until she committed to embracing her body and healing her relationship with food, exercise, and herself that she was able to jumpstart her modeling career. Now an advocate for body positivity, Chloe stresses the importance of expressing your true self, unapologetically, and hopes to one day start her own Latin dance fitness class.

“LATELY, I’VE BEEN EXPLORING BEING IN THE ‘UNCOMFORT’ ZONE, DOING THINGS I NORMALLY WOULDN’T DO, LIKE NEW WORKOUTS AND EXPERIENCES. IT’S REALLY MOTIVATING.”

“AS A WOMAN, I THINK YOU NEED TO KNOW WHO YOU ARE AND CONTINUE TO PURSUE THAT IN SPITE OF THE OBSTACLES. THAT FEARLESSNESS, THAT FEROCIOUSNESS, THAT TENACITY, IS WHAT MAKES THINGS CHANGE IN TODAY’S WORLD.”

Model. Athlete. Mentor. Ryann Torrero, a professional women’s soccer player and goalie for the Chilean women’s national team, is in fierce pursuit of her dream to become an Olympic athlete (she’s currently in the qualifying stages for the 2020 games). As a woman in sports, she’s also a serious advocate for equal opportunity for women.

Her dream was almost cut short after a serious car accident removed her from the game for two years. But she bounced back stronger than ever, balancing her modeling career, her soccer career, and one of her biggest inspirations: the young girls that she coaches. Ryann hopes to blaze a trail for those young girls to follow their dreams, just like the women before her.

“FITNESS IS PART OF WHO I AM. RUNNING, LIFTING, YOGA, PILATES, FOR ME IT COMES EASY AND NATURAL. BUT I THINK THE MOST ENCOURAGING STATEMENT YOU CAN MAKE IS THAT IT’S OK NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU CAN DO, AS LONG AS YOU CAN DO SOMETHING AND PRIORITIZE YOURSELF A LITTLE BIT.”
