How do you define beauty?

For us strong babes, beauty is found from within. More than the physical beauty that is fleeting, we love to admire the inner beauty in each and every one our sisters!

Last month we had our BEST event yet: Bold & Beautiful! We partnered with our gorgeous babes at Project Glow; your desired stop for the best lashes in the bay. What a gorgeous space Ashley (owner) has created. Once you walk in, you immediately feel all the #bossbabe vibes with super cute decor & quotes around the shop that promote women empowerment and beauty.

Before the workout, we talked about the unique confidence inside ourselves, a boldness that does not derive from external things around us but solely what is inside of us. While we promote inner beauty & strength, we still give ourselves permission to get glammed up and know it’s okay to exercise our outer beauty too!

We are so thankful that our friends & phenomenal makeup artists at Lancome came out to help us feel and look beautiful for our girls’ day! We had so much fun breaking a sweat, getting makeovers in between, trying out all our sponsored goodies, and overall getting stronger & better together. Strong Babes is a growing community of women of all shapes, sizes and backgrounds from all over the Bay Area.

STRONG BABES | My Birthday & Charity Workout

I strongly believe we were all created to do good and be a blessing to others. For the second time ever, I wanted to use my birthday to do just that. Two years ago, instead of a big dinner party or gifts from friends, I used my birthday to raise funds for an orphanage in India where the orphan percentage is among the highest in the world at 20 million. This year, I asked everyone to support Charity Water: a non profit organization that helps fund clean water access to third-world countries.

_DSC5328.jpg

My goal with Charity Water:

1. Help save the lives of many who would otherwise die from drinking unclean water

2. Enable women to spend more time raising their family, starting businesses, and getting an education (since it is women who are responsible for nearly 80% of water collection by hand and foot)

3. Raise awareness to the importance of clean water and how privileged we are to have access to something so simple and yet so vital.

Being a part of the Strong Babes community is all about empowering and uplifting each other while becoming the best versions of ourselves from the inside out. My only birthday wish was that we could extend this same message across the world, and I think we accomplished just that.

Last Saturday, we gathered together for not just one, but TWO workouts at Hint water HQ! The plan for two slots was so that more of us babes could attend since the last few events completely sold out. We started the party with photos, water tastings (Hint has SO many yummy flavors), & getting to know each other better. After the workout, we enjoyed coffee by High Brew Coffee & homemade cookies by me!

STRONG BABES | Stronger in 2019

Leah_-29.jpg

***Join us for our next Strong Babes Event: my birthday edition! Purchase tickets here. A portion of the proceeds will go to Charity Water (a worldwide organization providing clean water to those in need).***

Leah_-14.jpg

As I was preparing for this month’s event, now having done three consecutively since November, I began to ask myself what the purpose is. I mean… sure, we can gather for a workout, have fun and enjoy some clean treats afterwards. And THAT could very well be a good enough reason for anyone.

Leah_-4.jpg

When I first started this event series back in November, I initially just wanted to give access to those who wanted to workout with me but couldn’t do private training for whatever reason. I believe fitness should be accessible and feasible for anyone who wants it. But for me, because there is so much out there that already makes fitness accessible, I needed a deeper purpose for these events. Any of you can find another event or workout class in the Bay Area.

Leah_-21.jpg

So why choose Strong Babes?

Ultimately, the Strong Babes series is a safe community where anyone and everyone is welcome, where fitness becomes relatable, tangible and accessible. This is a community full of strong women, who also welcome their male cohorts (hey strong bros!), and a community that believes in their own worth and wants to use that confidence to empower those around them.

A strong babe is a woman who believes in her own worth and knows she is strong from the inside out. She is not intimidated by other’s looks, opinions, or capabilities because she believes in her own gifts and unique talent. She lets her light shine unapologetically; yet with humility. Her confidence is not found in proving to others what she can do, but in encouraging, uplifting and loving others around her. Her success serves a greater purpose but it starts from within: emotionally, mentally, spiritually and then physically.

H U M B L E D. That’s the word that comes to mind when someone asks me how I feel after having only my second event. Yes, it’s my name on it but I hardly feel like its mine. This event really belongs to everyone who came to Burpees & Brunch and made the event even possible. And of course all the glory to God. 

sb-31.jpg

***GET YOUR TICKET TO OUR NEXT EVENT HERE: #STRONGBABES: STRONGER IN 2019!***

Big thanks to NOIR LOUNGE and my dear friend Jess, owner and hostess with the mostest, for opening up their space for #STRONGBABES: Babes, Bros, Burpees & Brunch edition! 

sb-39.jpg
sb-59.jpg

It was incredible to see so many babes and bros contribute to a safe space for us to work on becoming stronger from the inside out. We started with a few opening words to get our mindset right before jumping into a HIIT style workout that lasted for about 30 minutes.

sb-82 (1).jpg

After we were coated in hard earned sweat, we continued the party with some awesome post workout treats!

Special thanks to…

  • LUNCH PAD for providing organic based sandwiches for carnivores and vegetarians alike

  • NOIR LOUNGE for an awesome winter-inspired salad

  • POP BOTTLE for delicious on-the-go, non dairy lattes to keep every strong babe and bro reenergized for the rest of the day!

And SO much gratitude for our swag bag sponsors:

We’re excited to continue this movement into the new year with our next event @athleta on Fillmore. You can reserve your spot here: #STRONGBABES: Stronger in 2019. We usually sell out in a week or less so I’d definitely sign up ASAP!

sb-7.jpg
sb-49.jpg
sb-110.jpg

So why the name STRONG BABES?

The #STRONGBABES movement started one morning while I was training two of my clients in a partner session. I was inspired by not only their physical strength gains made within a matter of weeks, but at their internal strength to push through all the challenges the workout put them through. I simply put the hashtag on my IG story when I recorded their workout and from there, the rest just unfolded. Being a strong babe is about recognizing your own strength from the inside out and believing that you ARE strong no matter your age, background, or fitness level. I am so thankful for every one of my #strongbabes and the ones who will join us in January! #STRONGBABES: Stronger in 2019 is about to be FIRE. I hope you’re ready :)

I’ve probably said it 100 times over now, but my heart is SO full from our first ever Strong Babes event. We had over 30 strong women (and a couple men) bring their confidence, inner strength and good vibes to make this event a fun and sweaty workout party! The theme for this event was all about the B double O-T-Y! I wanted my babes to leave with sore bums and newfound inner as well as outer total body strength (which I definitely think was accomplished). Thank you so much to every amazing human who joined us!
