Girls Gone Strong

Girls Gone Strong is the world's best resource for women’s health, wellness, nutrition, training, and lifestyle information. But more than that, we are a force to be reckoned with that’s fighting back against the multi-billion dollar weight loss industry and mainstream media who try to convince us to be LESS instead of MORE. …who try to box us into a cookie-cutter look, style, size, and shape. …who put women on blast picking apart their every body part, fashion, and lifestyle choice. …who say strong women look like men. …whose sole purpose is to convince us that we are too short, too tall, too fat, too thin, too strong, too weak, too emotional, too bitchy, too aggressive, too manly, too feminine, too slutty, too prudish, too loud, too big, too different, too basic, too smart, too dumb… We believe in autonomy, in providing great information to help you reach your personal goals (whatever they may be), in sisterhood, and in shining brightly so that we may give our sisters permission to shine brightly, too. We believe that there’s no one “right” way to have a body, and we love to display fit, strong, and beautiful women of all shapes, sizes, ages, ability levels, and athletic backgrounds on our site. The women in our Advisory Board are all world-class experts in their respective fields who have come together for one common purpose — to provide evidence-based, body-positive information to women, and use a united voice to fight back against the fluff and the fear-mongering the mainstream media uses to prey on your insecurities and sell you something you don’t need. Instead, we pride ourselves on offering real-life solutions to help you reach your goals in a realistic and compassionate way. We understand that women want to change their bodies — the way they look, the way they feel, the way they perform — but we also believe you must understand that you are enough as you are right this moment.

How To See More Results In Less Time

You need to suffer to see results.
If you're not exhausting yourself it won't work.
Go hard or go home.
Do more.
Work harder.
Work out longer.
No days off.

^^If any of these sound familiar, trust us. We get it. Many of us have been stuck in the "do more" trap thinking that training MORE was the key to getting the body and health I wanted.

The truth? Doing less can actually deliver so much more.
Thanks to Molly Galbraith for the article.

4 Tips For Managing Stress Effectively:

1. Learn to relax. Whenever you feel yourself getting worked up about anything, especially if you cannot control it, stop and take 10 deep breaths into your belly, and make sure they last at least 10-15 seconds each.

When you are done you will be more relaxed and focused, and hopefully have more perspective on the situation. You can also turn the ringer off on your phone, and remove social media alerts from your phone as well. Those constant distractions keep us primed and ready to go all day long.
