Smart Fit Girls (SFG)
The mission of Smart Fit Girls is to support and conduct non-partisan research, provide education, and programming to improve the physical, mental, and emotional health of adolescent girls. We do this by introducing girls to resistance training and having them participate in activities aimed at improving self-esteem and body image. Our vision is a world where every adolescent girl feels empowered to lead a healthy, active lifestyle. To date, we have served over 350 girls and with YOUR help, more girls can participate in our research-proven program.
Why we do it
We’ve been there and know what it’s like to be a young girl. We have also studied this extensively, and know that adolescent girls are at a disadvantage when it comes to their health and well-being. We want to do everything in our power to ensure that adolescent girls learn to love themselves by embracing their personal strengths.
I am a Smart Fit Girl. I am strong both physically and mentally. I respect my body and my mind. I love myself for who I am and every day I strive to be the best version of myself.
I am a Smart Fit Girl, and I encourage and empower all girls to be the same.

SFG and WSC Partnership
The partnership between SFG and WSC was only natural. The two organizations met when Shannon (the founder of WSC) interviewed Kellie and Chrissy (SFG co-founders) for a blog on the WSC website. After the first 10 minutes of the conversation, it was clear how much the two organizations had in common. Both SFG and WSC believed strongly in the empowerment of girls and women through strength training and not too shortly after the initial interview, the idea to host a fundraising powerlifting event came to fruition. As they say, the rest is history.
