Women’s Strength Coalition founder, Shannon Wagner – Episode 61

Most people complain about situations or circumstance, but very few of those people actually take action to make change and our guest today is doing just that. Shannon Wagner is the founder of Women’s Strength Coalition (WSC), a nonprofit organization committed to creating communities through increased access to strength training, a powerlifter and an all around amazing woman. She found her peace through iron and is making strides to help all women, regardless of gender identity, orientation and race, experience that same freedom.
