“We strive to establish a new paradigm in fitness & wellbeing that celebrates the unique identity of women”


The best practices for training & fitness have been developed over the years primarily based on male athlete research.
We aspire to shift this paradigm by building a comprehensive playbook that enhances the long term wellbeing of active women and to reach out to over 100,000 female athletes & coaches through our workshops, knowledge resources, access to experts and research.
