When I started going to the gym I was always really intimiated to try new things, particularly with lifting. After learning to love it with Crossfit Wall Street, I've been going to Strength For All in Brooklyn and really loving being part of a gym that is open and welcoming to people of all body types, fitness backgrounds, and lived experiences.
Uplifted! is benefiting the work of Women's Strength Coalition, which increases access to fitness and movement through advocacy, education, and scholarships.
I plan to lift 525 lbs, so my goal is to raise $525 (one dollar for each pound I plan to lift).
