FREAKY FRIDAY IV: STRONGWOMEN. GIRLS IN FULL PERFORMANCE

BREAKING THE TABOOS ABOUT WOMEN’S BODY AND TRAINING

There are endless messages about women empowerment, female choice and sorority, however, under the acclaimed flag of equality, we use to forget that, surprise!, men and women are NOT the same.

We are not talking about the indisputable need of equality in salaries, rights or opportunities, we are talking about the overwhelming differentiation established by hormones, pelvic soils and menstruations; key points in the daily physical functioning of a woman. Why we use to don’t take them into consideration in the sports practice? Is not the time to finally start to talk about them? Last Freaky Friday was about Strongwomen, about how to be a woman, train and optimize performance (without dying of frustration in the attempt). For this purpose, some experts, coaches and athletes (all women) came to Fittest Freakest to share their knowledge and, with the personal experiences of the 25 attending girls, helped us to break taboos, answer doubts and learn about the specific challenges of women in sports. Here it is the recap of this vibrating event which culminated with lots of potos, natural juices KM0 by BéBo and a big wave of feminine energy! Thanks to all the girls that made it happen.
