Hi There!

I'm Chrissy King.
I'm a writer, speaker, fitness and strength coach, and a powerlifter with a passion for intersectional feminism and creating a diverse and inclusive fitness industry.

I spent the majority of my twenties focused on shrinking — my body, my voice, and my entire life in general. I obsessed about my weight and truly believed that my happiness lied on the other side of fat loss.

Strength training, powerlifting specifically, was one of the things that changed changed this narrative for me. It’s one of the reasons I’m so passionate about sharing my love of lifting with others because I know how much it did for me.

I finally realized that my body is not an object for consumption. I am not an ornament or decoration for the world, and I don’t have to conform cultural standards of beauty.

Lifting helped me stop obsessing over the scale and learn to appreciate my body. I stopped playing small, and I stepped into the magical power that all women have. I learned to #TakeUpSpace.

Now, I empower women to stop shrinking, develop strength in all areas of their lives, start taking up space, and use their energy to create their specific magic in the world.
