About Shannon Kim Wagner

Shannon Kim Wagner is a Strength and Conditioning Specialist and founder of the Women’s Strength Coalition.

She created the WSC with a firm belief that there are three fundamental elements necessary to creating real social change.

People need to feel safe and strong in their own bodies. People need to feel supported and understood by their communities. People need to be educated on the lived experiences of others in order to instill compassion, and an obligation for action.

Further, the demonstrable link between strength training and mental health spurs her drive to make lifting more accessible to all people, regardless of gender, sexuality, or income level.

Shannon’s organization is changing the intersection between strength training and social outreach.
