"Goals change people"
My name is “Gigi” Boyd and I am CEO of Lady Lifters. I started my fitness journey in 2014 after I found myself overweight, low-self esteem, and with health issues. Basically, hating my life. I decided enough was enough. Weighing at a total of 280lbs, I put the pedal to the metal and in 1 year lost 100lbs. Choosing discipline and staying committed to my goals was not an easy task with the challenges I faced and continuously face to this day. That's why I tell you this, “Goals change people”. When I stopped making goals that revolved around everyone else and starting focusing on what my purpose was, my life changed drastically. In putting my goals and life first, I became more confident, inspired, and giving. Most importantly, I became a better role model for my children by showing them how to truly love yourself. They are my number one supporters and they are there every step of the way!
I started as the girl that was afraid to go to the gym and work out in front of other. Then, I owned almost every gym membership in the Delaware. (no joke) I began to surround myself with like-minded people. I laughed, I cried, I loved, I failed, I got back up, but I kept pushing through the doubts and fears. Mostly, fears that were projected onto me from people that were supposed to be supportive of me. I broke free of who I was “supposed” to be and became who I wanted to be.
Today, I am the owner of a fitness gym, ISSA certified, strong woman, and fit mom. That girl who was afraid to workout in front of others, she's dead. Out of the ashes like a Phoenix, rose Gigi. Here I am, and I am not looking back.
I know what it feels like to be at rock bottom. That is why I was inspired to create Lady Lifters and help other women transform their lives for the best. Fitness will create a positive rippling effect throughout your entire life, like it did for me. Since our grand opening on October 1st, 2016, Lady Lifters has proudly supported many women in their own transformations. Our vision is to impact women on a massive scale, uplifting and bringing value to women everywhere.
