#009 Ivy Knight: The Brainchild Behind "Girls Who Powerlift"

I don’t think there is a female powerlifter out there that hasn’t heard of “Girls Who Powerlift”. From the infamous Peach Gang shorts to their striking “Defiant” t-shirts, Ivy Knight has carved her way into the female community and apparel world of powerlifting.  Ivy and GWP are more than just a brand, they are a small community of powerlifting trailblazers.

Like so many of us, Ivy was a woman who found powerlifting on accident, but that discovery soon became a passion. With a push from her husband who had the vision of what GWP could become, Ivy slowly grew the page into a legitimate business that would very quickly, take over their lives. Business was booming and many days finished burning the midnight oil. Finding herself at a crossroads, what does one do when the “real job” gets in the way of your “hobby”? I bet not what you think. Ivy surprises us with a story that she has NEVER shared with the public. She recounts how that pivotal moment in her life led her to where she is at now, succeeding. #DivineIntervention

  • RUM meet and how it all began
  • Deciding to stay in her job or leave her job? Or something else??
