Including exclusive women’s Strength and Elevate courses



Recent research shows that the average female who strength trains two to three times per week for two months will gain nearly two pounds of muscle while also losing 3.5lbs of fat1. In men, this extra muscle may result in bulk – but not in women, who typically have 10 to 30 times less of the hormones that cause hypertrophy, or increased muscle size. Instead of bulk, that 2 lbs of muscle for women most often translates into lean muscle gains that result in physical and mental health benefits: improved strength, lower body fat, improved athletic performance, and confidence.

It’s no surprise that the Wall Street Journal reported gyms increasingly scaling back machine-style equipment for more traditional free weights2 in large part due to a surge in women’s strength training.

Kingfisher Strength leads the local women’s strength training movement by including exclusive women’s Rise and Elevate courses, and carrying an optional line of 15kg regulation-grade barbells designed specifically for women’s competitive lifting. We also provide annual support for Barbells for Boobs, the foremost fitness organization for promoting breast cancer risk reduction, treatment, and survivorship. Whether you are a woman with limited experience lifting or you’re currently training for the next competition, we are here to support your strength training journey through science, practice, and culture.
