Despite the reputation that its a “guy” thing, strength training is an absolute must for any female that wants to build a strong, powerful, lean physique. The feeling of empowerment that comes from successfully completing a lift. The feeling of pride and determination that comes from consistently training and finding a routine.

Functional Training for the Female Physique

Despite the reputation that its a “guy” thing, strength training is an absolute must for any female that wants to build a strong, powerful, lean physique. The feeling of empowerment that comes from successfully completing a lift. The feeling of pride and determination that comes from consistently training and finding a routine. The feeling of satisfaction when you begin to see the physical changes from your hard work!

This is what its all about!

Over the past 2 months I have been working behind the scenes to build the message, brand and framework for something I am so passionate about.

So what is Barbell Babes Brigade?!

Barbell Babes Brigade was created as a holistic training service that incorporates training methods to educate and empower woman to embrace strength and conditioning training. I believe there is a lack of understanding and education in regards to the amazing benefits of strength training for the female body. We are bombarded with so much information about training and nutrition that it is no surprise that we can often get confused, sceptical and possibly apprehensive about lifting weights.

Strength training is such an important part of an overall fitness program. Sensible resistance training involves precise controlled movements for each muscle group. The ability to reduce body fat, increase overall strength, prevent injury, increase bone density, increase lean muscle mass and burn more calories more efficiently are some of the reasons why strength training trumps all!

Despite the evidence out there as to the amazing benefits of strength training, the misconception and stigma associated with lifting weights and bulky appearances is still very evident for most females. Having met and spoken with numerous females about their goals there are common threads that come up in conversation;

Things like:

  • I'm unsure if I am doing it right
  • I've been doing body pump for a while now
  • I'm scared I'll hurt myself
  • I just to tone

I hear females become frustrated, pissed off and often upset about not getting the results they desire. Along with my love and passion for strength training this is where my idea and vision grew to create Barbell Babes Brigade!


Barbell Babes has been my precious little baby and she is getting ready to launch! The Babes project is not just a rebrand. It is a full adoption of the approach that strength training trumps all! My clients have been adopting and embracing strength training for years now. The real physical changes that they have obtained were achieved by embracing strength training. Don't get me wrong, many of them initially held the same thoughts as indicated above but they were excited to learn. One thing that I always say to my clients is that “Knowledge is power”. Educating yourself is such a powerful thing. Educate yourself to train smarter. Educate yourself to fuel your goals. Educate yourself to live a balanced, active, sustainable life.

I am taking this knowledge and guaranteed results and incorporating these principles into small group sessions. Programmed training blocks for progression in strength will reflect to changes in physique. Focus on the numbers and the rest will follow. This is the foundation of a lean "toned" physique. It is nothing new, this knowledge has been around for decades. I am endeavoring to cut through all the bullshit in the industry and bring it back to the basics. You can't mess with the foundations. Fads and fitness crazes will come and go but the old faithful barbell will always remain!

Train smarter! Educate yourself and enjoy what you do!

I am excited to be able to share more of my vision and dream with you over the coming months!
