Girls Who Powerlift! It's who we are and we're proud of it! The truth is that not everyone gets it. Not everyone gets why we love powerlifting. It gives us big "manly" muscles, callused hands and scraped up shins. Not everyone gets why we compete. We have to wear a singlet, use math to calculate our Wilks and water load. Even other powerlifters don't get us. We like to get our nails done, do our makeup before a meet and we appreciate our womanly curves and a good squat booty. But ya know what? We don't care! We are strong, we are beautiful and we will one by one take down every naysayer and uplift every other woman on the platform because that's who we are!
Girls Who Powerlift is a community of women who aren't afraid to be strong. And don't let our feminine ways fool you, we can still grind out a deadlift and eat all the doughnuts.
My pledge to you is to always be true to Powerlifters! This is not for the girls running miles upon miles on a treadmill just to leave the gym when they're done. This is not for the girls who wear gloves to lift weights. This IS for the girls who POWERLIFT! Who leave blood, sweat and tears into each and every lift and who do it with pride.
