Welcome to One Strong Southern Girl!
I’m here because I had a serious problem–I ❤ exercise–always have–but was frustrated with all the ‘exercisey’ stuff in the world. What’s best for me?? Which programs and equipment would take me to that happy place where exercise would transform my life?
I wanted ONE place I could go and find out about all the exercise programs, products and services on the market. I wanted someone to explain how each exercisey thing worked so I could decide if I should dive in with my time and money and give it a shot. AND—I needed all that information from a woman’s eyes.
You can see where this is going😉…I never found that place so I created it!
Welcome to One Strong Southern Girl!💐⭐❤💪
This is where I break down exercise programs, products and services that look promising. I try them out then report what I find to you–from a regular woman’s point of view.
Why am I doing this? Because with 100% conviction I believe that exercise can make every woman’s life better. And I want to help you feel amazing and beautiful and be the best badass you that there is!!
Exercise should never feel too complicated to try (or make you want to go eat a bag of chips instead of figuring out where to start).
✔My goal is to help simplify all the nuts and bolts that make up your exercise program so that exercise is a natural fit in your day and not something you ever dread.

The Best Beachbody Programs for Women...
The length of the routine, the personality of the instructor, how much equipment is required, etc. are all important to me, too.
But it’s how effective and fun a program is that keeps me going back to it.
It’s also important to mix things up frequently. Doing the same series or workouts over and over is not only boring but can lead to a fitness plateau (where you stop seeing results).
Variety is a vital component to an effective exercise program.
