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. In the SFG program, Kesem was able to work through a variety of workouts to build strength in areas and muscle groups she didn’t really think about before.
With Strong Feels Good, Kesem has finally found the workout classes she was looking for. Her favorite? The HIIT workouts, and the variety of the workouts keep her from feeling bored. With her strength...

I personally wish I found deadlifts sooner...for the longest time I was always ONLY squatting...which lead to my body being SUPER Quad dominate, later this turned into an imbalance that would lead to me tearing my ACL…
(Reminder I am going over the classic deadlift there are other types of deadlifts you can do)
I personally LOVE push-ups! You don’t need any equipment to do them and it’s a great way to test your strength! NOT to mention by just changing your arm positioning in a slight way you can work different muscle groups!
But push-ups aren’t as easy as they look! So in this article & video we will go through EVERYTHING that you need to do/know in order to perfect them!
Robin is from Rhode Island, and pre-pandemic worked as a stage manager, but with theater being shut down, her side-job of coaching gymnastics is now her full time job. When the quarantine started, Robin wasn’t in the best place: she had put on some weight from stress and wasn’t feeling comfortable with her body. She started with my free STRONG FEELS GOOD Challenge and segued into many of my other programs before finally settling on the SFG Membership.
Being able to see her progress throughout the many strength tests she has done has been one of her favorite parts because it has helped her truly see her progress and analyze her numbers. Robin’s had a couple nagging injuries but she’s really learned how to listen to her body, perfect her form even if it means doing an exercise modification, and know when it’s time to rest for her injuries to recover. Robin also loves the community and the support, connections, and friendships she has been able to create...
“A year ago, I don’t even think I knew what a plank was. That just shows you how bad I was with working out. If you had said I would be where I am today, I would say no effing way!”
Our Warrior of the Week is Chelsea! Chelsea hails from Washington DC and works for an environmental non-profit.
Chelsea had NEVER worked out before joining my program. Between her long work days and her struggles with anxiety, she never had the time or the confidence to work out. Covid created the perfect situation for her to start working out in the comfort of her own living room, but even then, it took her a long time to find the confidence to turn on her camera on the Zoom workouts.
Going to a gym can be super intimidating, especially if you’re a beginner. Chelsea is competitive by nature, but realizing that the only person she’s competing with is herself, and in the Strong Feels Good program, nobody is competing against her, but rather, supporting her and...
Today’s WARRIOR OF THE WEEK is the AMAZING Betsy! Betsy is originally from Minnesota but has lived in EGYPT for nearly 20 years, working as a foreign correspondent and writing her very first novel (how COOL is that!?). STRONG FEELS GOOD is a worldwide movement, people!
Betsy lived an active lifestyle (as a marathon runner and mountain climbing in the Himalayas… talk about incredible!) but as her activity decreased while she started writing her book. She saw Angela on American Ninja Warrior and was inspired to get healthy and get back in shape, so she signed up for the Core Revolution program, and when that was over she found herself saying YES, YES, YES to each of Angela’s programs until the creation of the SFG membership.
Betsy’s favorite part of SFG is the variety of the programming, and that once everything comes together and it starts working and her body is working the way she wants it to, she feels accomplished and like she’s leveled up. The...
