As a kid, Meg Squats was an athletic kid. She took part in numerous sports competitions, particularly in basketball and cross country.
However, her lifestyle and love of physical activity were affected when she started partying (which inevitably means eating junk food and drinking alcohol).

The first step towards your fitness journey:
After graduating from college, Meg found her body had been out of shape for so long, filled with junk and unhealthy food.
Her love for fitness began when she signed up for a half marathon with her mother. She started training for the marathon and her childhood love for fitness and exercise returned to her.
She took her next step in fitness when she made the New Years decision to try CrossFit. When she signed up for Crossfit, she was thrilled to find so much change in her body. And even the instructor and her friends saw their true abilities.
Another avenue for potential success opened up for her when she entered her first powerlifting competition, which was encouraged by her friends. At the age of 27 she took part in the Open New York State Show (2016). He performed excellently as it was her very first powerlifting competition. She managed to record the 1975 deadlift.
This victory gave her the confidence and motivation she needed to pursue a fitness career. As a result, she became a fitness trainer while watching powerlifting competitions with the same zeal.
Social media sensation:
With her goal of doing fitness coaching and inspiring every girl to get a barbell, she made her social media profiles. On these profiles, she shared pictures and videos of her training routines.
Given her amazing workouts and body, it didn't take her much time to make a name for herself in the fitness community, and therefore worldwide.
