About Coach Joelle,

From the age of 17, Joelle started teaching aerobics, spinning etc. It was only when she discovered CrossFit 10 years ago and introduced to these lifts that she realized she loved to lift heavy. It became her therapy and only wished she had something like this when she was young and was constantly bullied throughout her years in school. Joelle created this specialized class in a safe environment for girls to combat insecurities, anxiety and ultimately to empower them. Welcome to GRL PWR!!!
