Transcript for Angela Davis Helps Motivate People to Lose Weight and Gain Confidence
She's helped so many lose weight and gain confidence including two very special people and Cameron Mathison has her story. Reporter: New year, new you, right? But keeping that motivation going and sticking to a resolution is, let's face it, we could all use a little bit of help so we went in search of the most motivational instructor and, boy, did we find one. Come on, y'all. Reporter: Meet Angela Davis. She's the soulcycle guru to the stars, Vanessa Hudgens, David Beckham. Even Oprah Winfrey rode into her 60th birthday with Angela at the helm. I just had the best workout ever at soulcycle. Here we go. Reporter: Why do you think so many celebrities are drawn to you and your workouts. There's no judgment. There's no limitations. What I love about soulcycle is it's a community. Reporter: It's her commitment to community that makes Angela's classes so special with a unique approach to change you from the inside out. Angela has changed my life. She's a world class motivator. Reporter: Her followers call her workouts a spiritual movement. It is telling you can do it. You can't stop. We won't stop. I want you to know that dream that you have for yourself is not unreachable. Reporter: For years she's been a life saving inspiration to people who need it most. Through urban fitness 911, a program that helps kids pedal towards a healthier life. We're taking kids from the inner city, the hood and giving them experiences they would never ever get. Reporter: Teenagers Ronnie and shaveon not only lost 160 pounds collectively through soulcycle, but because of Angela, they say they have a whole new lease on life. I have high self-esteem. I believe in myself. Everything I want to do in life is possible. What do you think about you? Reporter: A spiritual journey. I had to try. For "Good morning America," Cameron Mathison, ABC news, los Angeles. Thank you, Cameron. We are so happy to have Angela motivating us here this morning. And you, boy, to see you in action, but I have to tell you, those two young people, Ronnie and shaveon, they are just -- they're incredible. They are incredible. They are incredible. They're from urban fitness 911 and they have changed us. They have literally changed us. They have led to you wanting to do more. Soul scholarships. Soul sclipgss. What are those? A program we're rolling out in February and give over 100 soul scholarships to underserved teenagers. What soul scholarships does is we are going to mentor, we're going to give classes, we're going to teach these kids how to eat healthy and be healthy and let them know they have a right to their best life and coach them to that. And it's not just -- this is what I am so happy I heard you're working on a book. Yes. I'm so glad because it starts from within. It has to. It has to and it has -- and you've given this to these young people. Help everyone starting out in the new year. They're motivated like Sara and everyone here is motivated. So great what you're doing. Angela Davis, give us some of those tips that you have. Where does it begin, writing it down. Write it down. You have to visualize what is your dream, what is your goal and then write it down and put it where you can see it so if you put a sticky on your computer, on the console in your car, on your mirror, write it down. See it. You have to see it before you see it in order to receive it. Oh. Then when you see it, say it. You are who you say you are. You got to say it. That better be in the book. Okay, and then it's all about making choices. Absolutely. So we make choices every day. We make choices all day and by the end of the day those choices will have made us. So if you made a bad choice, you're right around the corner to make another choice. Make good choices. Okay, you know what, I'm looking at your face. You guys are smiling. If you're not having fun, if you're not enjoying what you're doing, you're not going to do it. You're not going to do it. Find joy in movement and at soulcycle we pride ourselves in typing joy in movement. You have to love it to continue to do it. Find your way. Find your way. Unfortunately we can't have a big class like this all the time but it is about community, it's not going it alone. Absolutely. Absolutely. I love the saying teamwork makes the dream work so find your community, find your village, find your tribe. At soulcycle another thing we pride ourselves on is the community. Riding as a pack, a family, a tribe, a village. Find your village. Find your community. What is it about this lady right here, this woman right here? Thank you. Thank you for what you do. Sara, everyone, and, again, wait a minute, guys. I want to make sure everybody hears this. They have committed to giving 100 scholarships but if today's cycle Thon is a success and it's going to be, soulcycle will double the scholarships for next year so keep on going.
