I have been thinking of this subject a lot lately. According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, to empower means "to give power to (someone); to promote the self-actualization or influence of."

In my daily life, I see women who don't know how to stand in the power of their own selves. I see women who don't realize they even have power. They feel insecure about their bodies and their minds. They don't realize they have a voice, let alone use that voice.

I claim that StrongGirl Revolution "empowers women through strength training," but what does that really mean? I guess showing someone she is strong and can lift heavy shit or do a pull up is giving her the power of physical strength and confidence, but I want to do more than that. I want us as women to take back our bodies, our minds, our individuality, our voices. I want us to be strong in all aspects of our lives.

This is something I have believed in pretty much my entire life. This is something I feel even stronger about now that I have a teenage daughter and a teenage son.

As a fitness professional, I tend to write about those things related to exercise. I think as a woman and as an owner of a company named StrongGirl Revolution, I need to broaden my writing. I need to incorporate real issues affecting women. I need to dispel myths. I need to tell my story.

These blog writings will still have information on weight lifting, exercise, and health, but I will also include writings to really help empower women in all aspects of their lives, not just in the weight room.

I look forward to expanding my voice and hopefully helping you find yours.
