In 2011, Artemis’ love for kettlebells and strength training drove her to open her own hardstyle kettlebell and training gym in Boston, Massachusetts, Iron Body Studios, with her husband, fellow StrongFirst Instructor and Athletic Trainer, Eric Gahan.
In addition, after she completed the Iron Maiden Challenge in 2014 (she was the ninth woman in the world to complete the Iron Maiden Challenge between StrongFirst and the RKC and the lightest and smallest woman to date as of July 25, 2014 to complete The Challenge), Artemis created her own women’s strength workshop, I Am Not Afraid To Lift®. Her mission was to educate women about the importance of strength training, about how to strength train properly, and to help them to feel empowered and build a strong mindset through strength training.
NOW Artemis coaches Fitness Professionals, through 1:1 Business Coaching and Mentorship programs, how to transition online and/or build their online coaching businesses to $100k and beyond.
