  • Nicole Roggow ‘Capurso’ - Her story of choices, change and priorities

    "I used to be the exerciser who monitored everything that went into my mouth, how much I slept, and how much I trained. Now, my life includes a husband, a house, two businesses, two dogs- all things that are more important than my training schedule. Because of that I can influence and help a lot more people."

  • Good vibes only. That gift is rare. Here is the story of Quiana Welch.


    “I want people to think outside of the box. Stop being afraid of getting out there and doing things like oly lifting and trying something new. I know people like to see themselves represented. If I can be THAT person and to show others that they can do these things too, I will be. You don’t see a lot of people like myself walking around [in this space]. Because of that, people begin to think they are unwelcomed or they aren’t allowed to do certain things.”
