Some of the biggest names in fitness came together for an inspiring International Women’s Day event at Hero Training Clubs in Manchester this month. 

Lucy Davis, a former GB swimmer and fitness influencer with a massive 587k followers on Instagram alone, hosted the event at the boutique gym in the city centre. 

The Someday is Today event featured fitness classes, panel talks, networking and food and drink, all geared towards celebrating and empowering strong women. 

Lucy brought together women from across the fitness industry to showcase that women can build strong bodies without ever feeling intimidated in the gym. 

Speakers at the panel talks included TikTok fitness sensation Natalee B Fitness (whose videos show why no one should feel self-conscious in the gym), Gymshark athlete and Shreddy trainer Oyinda Okunowo, and nutritionist Dr Emilia Thompson. 


They were also joined by Farah Fonseca, who’s been named England’s Strongest Woman three times, best-selling food author Lucy Lord, and disabled bodybuilder Taylor Crisp.

Then those who attended took part in two of Hero’s industry-leading fitness classes, either spin and conditioning, or boxing and yoga, taught by some of Manchester’s best female instructors, encouraging people to step out of their comfort zone.
