Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- The American Council on Exercise has recruited a local personal trainer and fitness expert to help inspire people around the country to live a healthy lifestyle.

Shana Verstegen is a 6-time world champion Lady Lumberjack and participates in unique sports like log rolling and fitness competitions. She's now traveling the country helping to raise awareness about the positive impacts of being healthy. Shana's mother was diagnosed with Huntington's Disease when she was 16 years old and since then she has worked to combat disease and obesity with healthy exercise.

Her log rolling and Lady Lumberjack fitness techniques have been featured on ESPN, ABC Wide World of Sports and the Outdoor Life Network. Her goal with the American Council on Exercise campaign is to inspire everyone around her.

"I love seeing people join and get to experience such a cool sport. I like to see people go through the same phases I did, maybe they're not super athletic, but it's a fun and unique sports and they just have a good time," said Verstegen.

The American Council on Exercise encourages viewers to share weight loss and health goals on social media with the hash tag #GetInspired.
