About Size Strong
After going through my own personal transformation and working in fitness for several years, I feel like there is a need for more emphasis on who we are and who we can become from the INSIDE out.
Size Strong is a community and resource for those who are passionate about fitness, health, and wellness. My aim is to be a positive and trustworthy resource for information about how to be your best, strongest, and healthiest self. Size Strong is about becoming your best self, not just looking it. Size Strong is about getting the tools, motivation, and support you need to learn how to live a wholly healthy life. It’s my belief that fitness is not a destination, it’s a journey. That fitness is not about how you look – it’s about how you FEEL and what you (as a whole person) can DO. I Am Size Strong and I encourage you to be too!
