Step-Ups: Not As Simple As They Look

While it may sometimes be challenging to see immediately how some resistance exercises translate in real life, it certainly isn’t the case with step-ups. After all, we do some on an everyday basis simply climbing up stairs, don’t we? Yes. And no. Step-ups seem like a really simple exercise, but there are a couple of […]

All You Need to Know About the Barbell Bench Press

In the list of exercises that can make someone feel powerful while seeming a little intimidating to those not familiar with them, the barbell bench press is certainly in one of the top positions! Do you have questions about the barbell bench press? Not sure of the benefits or of how to perform the exercise? […]

How to Create Meaningful Connection and Build Trust With Person-Focused Coaching

As a health or fitness professional, you may be familiar with the “client-centered” approach to coaching, where the client is the authority on their own lives, and the coach works with the client to build their dignity, autonomy, self-determination, self-efficacy, and self-expertise. At Girls Gone Strong, we are of course completely on board with empowering […]

4 Ways Becoming a Certified Pre- & Postnatal Coach Will Change Your Career

This month marks my 14th year of being deeply involved in the health and fitness industry. From the very beginning, I was committed to seeking out the absolute best training and nutrition information available. Not only did I read everything I could get my hands on, but I constantly spent time learning from super smart […]

Me Too

As women, it’s sadly unsurprising to learn that another woman we know has experienced sexual harassment, assault or violence — after all, most of us have. Sharing our stories can be as comforting as it is horrifying: while it helps to know that we are not alone, thinking about how widespread these experiences are can […]

A Travel Strength Circuit (For When You Have No Space At All)

If your holidays look anything like mine, you’re visiting family or friends, the house where you’re staying is full of people, and while you might be lucky enough to snag a bed in which to sleep, that’s basically all the space you have to yourself. You may also have great intentions about exercising regularly during […]

Dealing with Grief and Loss

Life is hard sometimes. Like, really, really hard. Almost everyone I know is dealing with something really hard right now: natural disaster, cancer, infant loss, systemic racism, chronic pain, caring for sick parents, divorce, depression, homophobia, transphobia, anxiety, job loss, seizures, major surgery, bankruptcy… the list could go on. All super difficult, complicated, and really […]

Is Being Really Lean Really Worth It?

Asking whether or not being really lean is really worth it — in the fitness industry, no less — might seem like an odd thing to consider, particularly to people for whom “fitness” and “leanness” are almost interchangeable. At the very least, the quest to be “more fit” is often synonymous with “getting leaner,” and in […]

“I came to the gym Monday a different trainer.”

One of the best parts of my job is getting feedback from women like you about the work we do at GGS. I recently spoke at a large conference in Chicago, and just a few days later, this message popped up on our Facebook feed. “… it forever changed my view on many things and […]

Why I’ve Only Worked Out Six Times In Two Months

Yesterday was only the sixth or seventh time I’ve strength trained in the last eight weeks. Yes, that’s less than once a week over the past two months. I’ve done some walking here and there, but I’d be lying if I told you I’ve been moving my body regularly. In fact, this is literally the […]
