Hi, I'm Meg. I make videos for my #strongstrongfriends.
I'm an ISSA Certified Personal Trainer, USA Powerlifting Club Coach, and Nationally competitive powerlifter.
I help lifters from beginner to advanced get comfortable with a barbell, and build strength and muscles with powerlifting style training. My channel is full of videos that explore what it means to be a strength athlete, and what it means to use strength in every day life, or other avenues of athletics or fitness. Join me in my series playlists when I Train Like a Pro, Train Like a Fitspo, or catch a quick lifting tip or fitness advice with 5 minute Friday.

You can find my coaching team here: www.strongstrongfriends.com
and learn more about the services we offer, or hear testimonials from our clients.
