Who dat?

You probably already know who Emily Schromm is: she’s a CrossFitter, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Youtuber, podcaster, and even an ex-MTV reality show star.

Two years ago she flaunted some serious entrepreneurial skills by creating and launching the Empack, a backpack specifically designed to be used for weight training. She even raised over $140,000 with the Empack’s kickstarter.

Yeah, the girl stays BU-SY, and she’s got something else on the horizon, her first gym.

The space.

Introducing Platform Strength in Denver, CO. There will be five trainers running group classes just like at your traditional CrossFit box, but there will also be personal training. The facility will be open 24/7 with lots of space for Olympic lifting platforms and functional fitness equipment.

“I just feel like I never would have put something in the world if it already existed,” Schromm said.

Keep me posted!

Platform Strength is tentatively set to open this June, and their online programming will be available May 1st. You can join the mailing list or follow them on Insta to stay in the loop about the gym’s progress.
