“Now I’m strong. I’ve never been strong before. I feel it, I know it, and it’s a completely different state of mind.”
Maria is originally from Slovakia but currently lives in Luxembourg. She has been pretty active since her 20s, participating in sports, going to the gym, and doing classes. She started working with a personal trainer before covid hit and then she was unable to continue. She found Angela’s pull-up program and felt inspired to join and get her pull-up. She also got the Core Revolution program and was blown away by how effective it was, and just how wrong her technique was before.
With the strict lockdown rules in Luxembourg, the mindset portion of Strong Feels Good was life-changing, and now truly tries to get the best out of each day.

This week’s Warrior of the Week is Meghan! Meghan is the TRUE definition of a warrior, so grab those tissues when you listen to her story (especially the end)! Meghan first stumbled upon my programs when she was rehabbing a torn ACL, and if you know anything about me, I tore my ACL TWICE, and you know what my physical therapist told me? I needed a stronger core. So Meghan decided to join my Core Revolution program to work on strengthening her core to help heal her ACL. She realized how weak she was, and couldn’t even do a v-in. Now? She can do several v-ins. When recovering from her injury, she couldn’t jog, and now she can. She can do push-ups on her toes.
The Strong Feels Good program has really helped her stay committed and to really put herself and her health first. When Meghan...

This week’s WARRIOR OF THE WEEK is Kesem! Kesem lives in Tampa, Florida and found Angela through Women’s Health’s instagram workouts.
Prior to covid, she felt like when she went to the gym, she was just doing the same thing over and over again and had a hard time finding a class that she really liked. She was bored, and felt like she was lacking the structure she needed, especially to recover from a knee injury. She found the community she was looking for in Strong Feels Good.
