March 1st kicks off National Women’s History Month, a time to celebrate the vital role of women in American history. Today, it’s impossible to imagine the world without female doctors, athletes or personal trainers, but not too long ago, that was the norm.
In an industry once dominated by men, women throughout history have been changing the health and fitness space for years. Women like Jean Nidetch, the founder of Weight Watchers; Kathrine Switzer, the first woman to officially enter and run a marathon; or Lisa Lindahl, the creator of the sports bra, to name just a few.
Fitspot was co-founded by a pretty inspirational woman, and we work with hundreds of the top female personal trainers in the country. Which is why we’re proudly celebrating the women of Fitspot! Every week during the month of March, we’re going to showcase one of our fabulous lady trainers.
