Tuff Girl Fitness is a private strength and conditioning facility where women come to become more. In an industry that promotes losing, we want you to gain. We want you to gain strength, power, confidence, self-esteem, body love and appreciation. We want you to realize your potential for greatness, and discover how awesome you are.

We are weekend warriors, athletes, mothers, and students, all with one common desire: to give all we have, be our best, and live greatly. We use dumbbells, kettlebells, barbells, TRX, jump ropes, weighted sleds, and many other tools to help you see what you are truly capable of. 

What we do in our gym goes way beyond getting fit and strong. We help people see how amazing they are and discover their awesomeness. This awesomeness trickles over into the daily lives of the women we coach and they leave our doors to accomplish incredible things.

What are you capable of? Come find out during a complimentary week of training. You can try our group strength and conditioning classes, our Kettlebell Strong program and FMA Performance, our powerlifting/barbell program. One week on us. 

Come as you are, leave a little bit better.

Trusting the process, trusting the program, doing the hard work day in and out, it pays off! I have watched as this Tuff Girl did the work even when she was frustrated with the plan, and today she is better and stronger than ever! Margaret we are SOOO proud of you! 💪❤️🙌 #tuffgirlstrong #trusttheprocess #Repost @gohaw with @repostapp. ・・・ Just about 6 months ago I started the Kettlebell Strong program @tuffgirlstrong. 6 months ago I was dead swinging a 16kg bell 10x in 10minutes. It was hard work and I really struggled with it. But I stuck with it, I did some reading, listened to podcasts and most importantly listened to everything my amazing coaches told me. Today I swung a 22kg bell 100x in 10 minutes. It's amazing to look back at this program and see how much stronger I am!
