Wednesday, December 9

I feel like I've written this blog post a few times before, but I think it's something worth sharing and it seems like more and more main stream media outlets are catching on. More women are lifting weights than ever and are views are changing on what is considered the "ideal" body type. In fact, there is no ideal body type because more and more women are focused on what their bodies can do rather than what they look like. Oh, and for the third day in a row I'll say thank you to CrossFit. From The Guardian: ‘Strong is beautiful’: the unstoppable rise of Crossfit

From CBS News: Women weightlifters challenge stereotypes: "It's cool to be strong"
