We believe when women feel strong, confident, and empowered in their lives and bodies, 
we can change the world.

About GGS

In 2011, a group of seven women came together. We were all passionate about helping women get stronger, and we wanted to share that passion with other women. So we created Girls Gone Strong (GGS).

Unlike other fitness media at the time, GGS encouraged women to get stronger—physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Our idea took off. Industry leaders championed our work. Women from all over the world joined our community. And the GGS movement was born.

Since that time, GGS has stayed relentlessly dedicated to improving the health and fitness industry for women.

Today, we’re driven by a set of core beliefs that help us fulfill our mission of creating evidence-based, body positive health, fitness, nutrition, and pregnancy education for women and the professionals who work with them.

These are the core beliefs that drive our mission forward:

  • We believe there’s no “right” way to have a body, and that strength comes in all shapes, sizes, ages, races, and ability levels.
  • We believe women should have the space to make their own decisions about their lives and bodies — the way they look, the way they feel, and the way they perform.
  • We also believe women are enough just as they are, and their worth isn’t defined by the number on the scale or the barbell.
  • We believe women’s health is so much more than just squats and protein, and that racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, and classism are women’s health issues.
  • We believe women deserve solutions for often overlooked topics like menopause, pelvic health, pregnancy, PCOS, Hashimotos, body image, and disordered eating struggles.
  • We believe we’re better together — so we work with our interdisciplinary team of RDs, OB/GYNs, pelvic health physios, university researchers, psychologists, pre- and postnatal fitness experts, doulas, midwives, and more to develop our curriculum.

Finally, we believe when coaches have the right knowledge and skills they can make a huge impact in the lives of women.

And we know the education and coaching certifications we’ve created will help you empower women to feel stronger, healthier, and more confident in their lives and bodies.

Making a Difference

We’re committed to creating a better world for women everywhere.

How We Can Change the World Together

We know coaches have the power to create a better world for women — if they’re equipped with the right knowledge and skills.

That’s why we do the work we do here at GGS: To educate health and fitness professionals, and to coach women to improve their strength and confidence from the inside out.

Because we envision a world where women feel strong, confident, and empowered in their lives and bodies. We know coaches have the power to bring that vision to life.

At GGS, we define a coach as anyone who uses their knowledge and skills to help someone else get from where they are now to where they want to be.

That’s why our students and grads include health and fitness professionals, strength and nutrition coaches, physios, fitness enthusiasts, doctors, registered dietitians, nurses, doulas…

… even parents and people looking to switch careers.
