We are passionate about creating a space where women can find answers in a supportive and safe environment, promoting equality in the gym, on screen, in research and in prizes, as well as sinking our teeth into the best ways to optimise our health and training. We believe that our training should work with our unique and dynamic bodies, building on our strengths to help us grow and evolve in our field.

    Strongher is a women's only gym, an inclusive place that discards the stereotype of what gym's are and creates its own definition of the word. Where ALL women feel welcome and the game isn't about being bigger and better but about having a great experience and becoming strongher in the process.

    #8 Domestic Violence in Russia

    #8 Domestic Violence in Russia

    Domestic Violence has risen across the world this year as a consequence of COVID and the impact it has had on families and communities. Financial insecurity, restricted movement and the mental health crisis are some of the major issues that feed this problem. We were keen to have this conversation and start understanding how, in countries like Russia, domestic violence is common and seen as something that the family needs to fix, leaving victims with nowhere to turn if things go sour. We had the pleasure of chatting to Julia Wiebe, Russian born and now living in Norway, she is a BJJ athlete, Mathematician and Geophysicist PhD.  Check out our other episodes and please subscribe, comment and share! Follow us on instagram @womenwhofight.co.ukand facebook /womenwhofight.co.ukWebsite www.womenwhofight.co.ukHosts: Women Who Fight aka Shanti & MarinaSound Editor and Song Writer: Will Grant - instagram.com/willgrant_music
