Spectrum Fitness strengthens girl empowerment in Minot

By  | 

MINOT, N.D. - Spectrum Fitness in Minot is taking strength to a new level.

Girl power is more than just two powerful words for the women of Spectrum Fitness.

"Teenage and preteen girls in Minot just need something to do that involves healthy body, mind and soul," said Christy Miller, Spectrum Fitness women's fitness specialist.

That's why Christy Miller started the center's first Tween & Teen Girls Empowerment Workshop.

"A lot of adults don't realize that kids, as young as ten years old, deal with a lot of stress on a daily basis at school. So we definitely want to continue to this program so that girls in the community that feel like they have no place to go to learn healthy living have a place to go," said Miller.

"I loved the idea from the very first. There is a lot of pressure in today's world, especially with the social media and the pressures of social media, that girls have to be perfect all the time. And they don't," said Rachelle Sian, Specturm Fitness.

The group of girls said they were all about hula hooping and aerial yoga, but for some it meant much more.

"It makes me feel comfortable and it makes me feel like I can do more, and it just relaxes me," said Leah Walter, workshop participant.

"I have a lot of anxiety so it brings me down a lot so we're trying to build strength and tell each other that we know that we're strong and beautiful and we don't want to bring each other down," said Cali Wilson, workshop participant.

Using strength for the mind, body and soul to embody "girl power."

Spectrum Fitness owners say they plan to hold these workshops every month. The next one will take place Dec. 22.
