This is where you roll your eyes and utter, “what a cliché,” and believe me, as a writer (and a supporter of originality) I’m not oblivious to that fact. But as I reflect back on the journey of STRONG and see how far our little magazine has come, I can’t get that tired expression out of my head.
These last few months have been nothing short of a whirlwind of profound experiences as the STRONG team and I have worked to bring you what we hope has the potential of one day becoming a leader in fitness publications. Probably the most memorable of those experiences was when we took our newborn magazine down to Vegas for the biggest event in fitness, the Olympia Weekend, and threw it into the mayhem.
We were met with an overwhelming response from supporters that relate to our vision: athletes, trainers, models, advertisers, and most importantly, you, our future readership. We were humbled by the overwhelming enthusiasm for the STRONG movement.
