No one is stronger than the women in our lives. Some of us come to the gym to get stronger. We squat, we deadlift, and we press because we know it will get us closer to that goal. But strength is so much more than the weight you load on a barbell. Strength is courage, inspiration, discipline, and hard work. Strength means approaching life with an #EffortOverEverything mentality.
At Iron Roots Strong, that is the strength we look to build. On this International Women’s Day, we want to highlight the women in our community that embody that strength inside and outside the four walls of our gym.
Meet some of our amazing members that are making waves!
