StrongHER EMPOWERS ST LOUIS WOMEN THROUGH FUNCTIONAL FITNESS AND STRENGTH TRAINING
Have weights, will travel!
Katy Ferguson, Gillyon Alexander and Juli Eikmann from StrongHER are redefining what fitness looks like in St Louis by offering workouts that fit every lifestyle and budget and offering them different times and places that work for all types of women.
We visited StrongHer at one of their regular Saturday morning group classes at Oak Tree Park that is specifically designed for women of all fitness levels. It was beautiful to see such a diverse group of women coming together to have this fun but functional fitness community in the great outdoors.
“Gill and Katy made me feel welcome, as did their members, challenged me while coaching form and offering tips to modify, and helped me exceed my own expectations. If you do one thing for yourself, take one of their classes. It’s good for your mind, body, and soul. Even with the burpees.” ~Megan
Through offering group classes, after school specials for teachers, staff and community, corporate classes, personal training and small group training. it is important for Katy, Gillyon and Juli to be able to meet women right where they are and organically fit fitness and healthy lifestyle into their busy lives.
