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:
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.

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.
