In honor of Veteran’s Day, this week’s Badass Chick is Erin Mahoney, Air Force veteran and creator of Girl Power Go!
Erin noticed how crucial it is to teach girls at a young age about the value of self esteem and being kind to one another. So, she created the Girl Power Go program, which consists of 4, 6 and 8 week sessions. Each session is made up of of a life lesson, an activity and a fitness class. She teaches the girls about empowering one another, about doing the right thing, and about acting in a way that lets you feel good in your gut. Erin has brought her program to communities all throughout Massachusetts: she goes into schools, parks & recreation programs, Girl Scout troops — you name it, Erin can make it happen. Erin’s simple goal is to keep self esteem high for these young girls.
Erin is also an author, a fitness instructor and overall badass. She conducts GPG workshops all throughout the year, and one-off workshops, too! Her work is a labor of love and is certainly well worth fighting for!
