Mia wanted to help people understand that exercising is about taking care of yourself, and not for your body to look a certain way.  Knowing that this can have such a positive impact on your mental health, she wanted to help others start or continue their fitness journey.  She created the Your Why Has Weight campaign where people can honor their reason for working out, whatever that may be.
