Ainsley Proffit- Alpine D

September 19, 2018 2 Comments

My name is Ainsley Proffit, I was recently named to the US Ski Team and I am raising money to offset the costs of the 2018-2019 ski season. Currently the US Ski Team gets zero government funding to help guide athletes to the Olympics, so I am asking for your support to help me continue my race career.

I am from St. Louis, Missouri. I started skiing through public NASTAR races, and then found out about a ski team located in St. Louis called Hidden Valley. I joined the team when I was eight, and trained there every day until I was 12. The Hidden Valley Ski Team introduced me to racing and our family would travel to WIJARA and USSA Races throughout Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and Iowa. Competition stakes started to get higher, so I looked for training facilities out West. There, I could challenge myself by training and racing at a higher intensity on the large mountains compared to my little hill at home. Since making the move west to train and compete during the winter, I was named to the Rocky Mountain All-Star Team, the West Elite Team and ultimately now to the US Ski Team. I now spend the race season in Lake Tahoe, California training with Sugar Bowl Academy during the winter months.

Last season I started racing the FIS circuit. At the FIS level, you are competing against people of all ages and become ranked internationally. I claimed my first win at Snowbird, Utah in the Slalom event back in January. As I continued into the season, racing just got better and better. Soon enough Nationals arrived, and it was my turn to compete head to head with the best of the United States. I earned 10th in Slalom, 13th in Alpine Combined, and 14th in Super G. By the end of the 2017-2018 ski season I earned a Top 5 World Ranking for Slalom, and a top 5 in all disciplines in the USA for my age.

This year I have goals of achieving even more success and hope to earn a place competing at the World JR Championships. Training and competing at the international level this season will present many challenges, and your support will greatly help me build success and reach new levels of competition.

Thank you for your time and support, donations directly fund my training, travel and competition expenses. Please follow my progress this season on Facebook @ainsleymproffit and Instagram @ainsley_proffit for continued updates.

Want to be Instagram cool?

If you are like me, you have trawled Instagram, thinking “how do these darn people get so famous”?

Imagine: it is the wee hours of the morning and you told yourself you’d go for a run today.

You spring up to check your phone.

Make your way to Instagram.

Youare surprised at what is waiting for you: Over 738 likes on a single one of your pictures! There, you see a a huge amount of likes on your pictures—over 652 on a single photo alone.

You hop out of your bed, meander to the kitchen. You want a drink, so you place the kettle on for some coffee, and check Instagram again.

Presto! Another 87 likes.

Buzz—a message pops into your inbox from a follower. They are asking you for advice on how you manage your food, and are congratulating you on your third month of hitting the gym.

As you read it, you begin to grin. It is a amazingly sweet-looking person, and they love your posts.

As you begin to respond, your phone buzzes again.

Oops, another ping. But you can’t hit them back—you’ve got to hit the gym.
Listen, ainsley_proffit, most people just are not in control of their life. Seriously, they can’t even get themselves to have a balanced brekky, much less hit the gym.

My job is to take people from Instagram nobody to Insta-celebrity. (It sounds ridiculous, but results do not lie.)

Imagine if you could raise your popularity by 100%, or 1000%?

Truth is, it’s not the most complicated thing in the world to get more. As an example, all the old pros use our website.

In just minutes after posting, you have your images piled with likes.

With this you’ve a big chance to be featured in the “Top Post” section.

This is all great, but you’ve really got to put in the work to make it happen. OK, you got me, it is not real work.
1. Click
2. Enter in your Instagram username.
3. The 3 pictures you posted last will receive 10 – 15 likes. Just like that.

Being a everyday name on that page will increase your growth 10x, easy. But if you want the fame, you’ve got to reach for it. Are you ready?

Chow for now.
