Ladies Who Shred Superfit Hero Sponsored Community


Amy Cullen, Ladies Who Shred

Amy is building a community called "Ladies Who Shred" encouraging all types of women to get into adventure sports and the outdoors. Historically and stereotypically, there's a specific view of what women should look like in order to do these things, and Ladies Who Shred are shredding those notions. Ladies Who Shred is for all ages, body shapes, body sizes, body types, ethnicities, and economic means. It's about raising awareness and supporting women already shredding and those who want to get into it. They foster growth and support through peer-to-peer education and confidence-building. Amy herself is a self-proclaimed "unlikely adventurer" and proof that women are capable of so much more than the media tells/sells us. The goal is to change the world and redefine what it means to be a shredder, and in particular, a Lady Shredder!
