Strong Women - Lifting Each Other Up

How many strong women do you know in your life?  I know quite a few, but I want to focus on one woman in particular for this blog post.  Debbie; she is my friend and my coach and she inspires me to be a better and healthier me.  

We met a few years ago when I joined a local CrossFit box.  She was one of the coaches and I loved her style of coaching and we became friends.  Last year, she opened up her own gym out of her garage and of course we followed.  Under her coaching, I have accomplished things that I never thought I could ever do.  It's not always easy, and it's sometimes painful, but we all keep going back because we know that she has our best interests at heart and she really wants us to become the strong women that she knows we can be.  She's one of the most dedicated and disciplined women that I know and I wish that I could be more like her.  She's worked hard to get where she is and in the shape that she's in and her hard work is paying off.  This last weekend she competed in the NLI competition in Orange County and we went to watch.  She came in 1st place and I was so happy for her that she was rewarded for all of her hard work.  Of course I took my camera along with me because as photographers, that's what we do!  

I hope these images inspire you to try new things, get in better shape, don't be afraid to try!  Let's become strong women, inside and out, and let's lift each other up and encourage each other to be the best women that we can be.
