Starting early April, we will be joining forces to offer a FREE community of information, support, and education to all WOMEN in the health and fitness industry.
The current online space is full of female fitness "influencers" giving you random advice, little value, and selling you on ideals that, we believe, do not serve us well as women in the industry. We want our collective passionate voices to drown out these “influencers” and celebrate the “educators”. We want to elevate you so we can elevate us all!
If you are sick of watching women sell their bodies and not their minds this group is for you.
If you are tired of marketing giants that target women with ridiculous equipment, like booty bands and hip thrusters, and low quality workouts focused on what you look like and not how well you can move, this group is for you.
If you are sick of seeing men move quicker up the ranks in all avenues of fitness, coaching, education, and business, this group is for you.
If you are looking to make positive change in your clients lives through educated programming and purposeful principles, this group is for you.
If you are seeking out a community of women looking to elevate the industry, this group is for you.
Join us over the next 8 weeks as we pour into you EVERYTHING we have, and create a supportive community that changes the health and fitness game for every woman in the industry.
