I’m Mickie and I’m the owner of One Strong Southern Girl

You know how frustrating it is to sort through all the exercise products and services out there and try to figure out which ones are the perfect fit for you?  I can help with that!

I try out, try on, attempt, assess, analyze, investigate, taste, touch, put to the test, question, validate and examine fitness stuff and then share every last detail so I can help you find all the exercise things that will challenge and change you!

 Here’s (some of) what you’ll find on my site:

  • A realistic picture of what you can expect from some of the most popular exercise videos, equipment and services so you can make an informed decision about whether they’re right for you
  • Honest reviews and information about fun events like the Tough Mudder (from a woman’s point of view)
  • Detailed information about the best places to find beautiful, high-quality workout clothes
  • Exercise resources, tips and information to help you shape the perfect fitness routine that fits your life
  • Exercise video clips to help you perfect your form while giving you ideas of new moves to try out
