Strong Women Saturday

At the Female Fitness Academy we are constantly amazed by all of the STRONG WOMEN who cross our paths. We want to recognise and celebrate the achievements of strong women all around the world who inspire other women to challenge themselves and achieve their dreams. We will be featuring an inspiring Strong Women every Saturday and sharing their story.

A Strong Woman is so much more than being able to lift a heavy weight. She respects herself. She is humble, She is balanced. She is determined. She is brave. She loves.
