My Badass Pink Sandbag
Welcome to STRONG GIRL REVOLUTION! I am so excited to be launching my first website. Well, not really my first website. I tried to create one a couple of years ago, but it was a flop. I didn't really have much of a vision or direction for it. Now I do have a vision and I want to share it with all of you!
Let me tell you how STRONG GIRL REVOLUTION came to be.
I have a pink sandbag and it is BADASS! The exercises performed with the sandbag really challenge every part of your body with every movement. BADASS!
Several of the guys at the gym laugh at my pink sandbag and refuse to even touch it, as if it has cooties. If it were a black sandbag, they would have no trouble using it, but it's pink.
That got me thinking....
I was never a girlie girl. I was the weight-lifting, head-banging, hippie-dippie type of chick. I never liked the color pink. That was too girlie.
But what is "girlie" and why is it a bad thing? I'm a girl. I like to get dressed in pretty clothes, do my hair, wear make-up. I like to go to the theater, to a ballet, to the museum. Does that make me girlie?
I also like the feel of heavy weights in my hand, the sound of rock music blaring in my ears. Heck, I am obsessed with The Walking Dead! I would LOVE to be a zombie on the show.
I thought it was about time we redefine "girlie". After all, we women endure 9 months of pregnancy and all of the morning sickness, foot swelling and rib kicking that comes with it, only to endure hours of labor to birth the baby. We take care of our children, our husbands, sometimes our parents, and our homes. Some of us do all of that while working at full-time jobs!
Women are STRONG! We aren't wimpie, like the word "girlie" seems to denote.
Now the one aspect most of us women have traditionally neglected is our physical strength. Most women think that lifting heavy weights will make us bulky. They tend to find their fitness in hours of cardio and will only lift low weights. This formula usually gets women nowhere.
STRONG GIRL REVOLUTION is created to debunk the bulky myth. STRONG GIRL REVOLUTION is here to show women that STRONG is the new sexy.
Now this website is still a work-in-progress. I have a ton of ideas that are going to take time to create. I plan to be able to let you pay for the bootcamps through this website, as well as purchase STRONG GIRL REVOLUTION apparel. I will be adding more pictures, more events, and even videos. I even have a huge project in the works that I will tell you about when I am closer to launching. Click over here every now and again to see what is happening!
Also, please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, ideas, etc. I would love to hear from you!
Let's get this STRONG GIRL REVOLUTION started!
