Ladies ONLY Strength and Conditioning Program


Started in Kansas City as a vision.

We train to become strong in our body. We train to become strong so that we may be powerful in our presence. We train because we are strong. 


We practice flexibility for out health and our mind. If we generate flexibility in the gym, we learn to be flexible in all aspects of out life.


Building balance creates harmony between flexibility and strength. We work on agility and balance so we can continue to build strength through our power. 


We promote a positive body image because we are here for us. We want to feel good so that we can look good!

As Co-Owner of Welcome Mat NOLA and Strength and Conditioning coach, I first envisioned GEMS as "FEMALE ONLY" workout group in my  gym basement. I wanted to cultivate a space that allowed for women to work out and not deal with any added stress or distractions of a conventional gym. Too many times, I would find myself either bored on a elliptical, overwhelmed by group classes that were high strung, or fighting grown men for a spot on the squat bar. I really just wanted to work out, feel good, and leave the gym feeling accomplished. So, after looking for the perfect program and perfect class, I gave up, and started my own. 

The GEMS program is dedicated to improving strength, power, agility, balance, and flexibility.
