i get asked allllll the time what a lululemon ambassador is & how i got the opportunity to be one.
talking my lovee for all things lululemon….
what is lululemon:
Founded by Chip Wilson in Vancouver, Canada in 1998, lululemon is a yoga-inspired, technical athletic apparel company for women and men. What started as a design studio by day and yoga studio by night soon became a standalone store in November of 2000 on West 4th Avenue in Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighbourhood.
Our vision for our store was to create more than a place where people could get gear to sweat in, we wanted to create a community hub where people could learn and discuss the physical aspects of healthy living, mindfulness and living a life of possibility. It was also important for us to create real relationships with our guests and understand what they were passionate about, how they liked to sweat and help them celebrate their goals. Today, we do this in our stores around the globe.
Our first designs were made for women to wear during yoga. Through plenty of feedback from our guests, ambassadors and elite athletes, we now design for yoga, running, cycling, training and most other sweaty pursuits for women and men. Not to mention, our designers are athletes and sweat-minded people, too.
OUR BEST LIFE
A constant that has never wavered is our desire to empower people to reach their full potential through providing the right tools and resources, and encouraging a culture of leadership, goal setting and personal responsibility. Our core values of quality, product, integrity, balance, entrepreneurship, greatness and fun are lived by our people every day and are at the heart of our unique company culture.
We live a life we love. We set our goals to align with our vision, and it’s why, so often, our one-year goals become today’s reality.

why i believe in the brand:
how can you not believe in a brand that believes in people becoming their best self? what i have seen from lululemon as a brand is pure dedication to inspire & cultivate community. i believe in lululemon because it defines #thesweatlife as a way of life for everyone. lululemon defines next level quality. i first fell in love with lululemon about 5 years ago when i was on my weightless journey. every time i walked into a lululemon store my experience was always heartfelt & enjoyable. lululemon’s gear is known for combining comfort with design. i also love that they have gear for your specific sweat. whether you are a runner, yogi, spinner, dancer… they have something for you! now that i am on the other side as an ambassador, i have grown to not only love the brand more, but to respect it. lululemon believes in the growth of their employees. personal development & goals are a big part of lululemon. what’s not to love??!
how i became an ambassador:
tbh, i’m still in shock! like what, is this real life? being a lululemon ambassador has been one of the biggest honors in my career. the reality is i don’t have the right answer to give you to this question! here is what i know i did. my main objective since day one as a leader has always been to stay true to who i am as a person, bring something unique to my city & have a strong presence in the community. before becoming an ambassador, i fell in love with the brand first. i fell in love with the clothing, the people & all things lululemon. if you are interested in becoming an ambassador, my best advice is to allow it to happen organically. in other words, show your true colors & be yourself. you have to have a true connection to what lululemon stands for & want it for all the right reasons. this is not something that happens overnight, it takes time. at the end of the day, they are looking for someone that embodies #thesweatlife through & through.
i will never forget may 24, 2017!!!
i was teaching my usual 5:30AM #dhftightaf class when all of the sudden i heard sirens going off like the studio was literally on fire. there was no fire, but it was about to get really LITTTTTTT. little did i know, i was about to be asked to be a lululemon ambassador. i remember trying to keep class going in order to stay professional for my clients. then out of nowhere alllllllll these amazing faces starting running up the stairs cheering!!! at that point, i knew what was happening! naturally, i started cryinggggggg. i was asked to be the ambassador for the houston galleria or better know as the #hogahustlers!!! i felt so many incredible emotions that day!!! what a moment in my life!!
what is being an ambassador:
as an ambassador i represent lululemon in the houston community, as well as the brand as a whole for a two year term! being an ambassador has allowed me to feel even more rooted in my foundation as a leader. in working with lululemon, i have had the opportunity to connect to some of the most inspiring individuals in my community. lululemon has pushed me to continue to reach for my goals & plan for my future. anytime i ever need support, lululemon is the first to help in any way they can. it’s been the best journey thus far & i look forward to continuing it! can i be an ambassador forever?!
