Christen Harper leads a wellness-focused lifestyle, and the SI Swimsuit model is ready to help her fans do the same. The three-time brand star and friend Elizabeth Turner have teamed up to create Planted, an app designed to “support your mind, body and soul.”

Harper participated in a panel discussion at SI Swimsuit’s “Be You Women’s Empowerment Series,” presented by Maybelline, at the University of Cincinnati on Sept. 21, where she teased her new project, which is now accepting waitlist registration prior to launch. 

“The app is definitely a holistic approach to wellness,” Harper explains. “I just felt like there needed to be a space where women can feel supported in all aspects of your life, whether it’s mental health or fitness.”

This isn’t the first time the besties are teaming up on a business venture: earlier this spring, the reigning co-Rookie of the Year launched a collection of swimsuits with Turner’s company, B Swim. In addition to emotional well-being resources and workouts, Planted will offer one-on-one coaching.

“It really starts with feeling good from the inside out and that’s where we felt, you know, people just wanted extra help and people were asking us kind of what we were doing to make ourselves feel good and it felt like there was a space for that,” Harper adds. “And so we’re putting this out to just support people in their daily [lives], whether it’s a recipe or just something to make themselves feel better every day and we're excited.”
