I'm Mickie. Co-founder and CEO of One Strong Southern Girl. Our team is here for you. We want you to remember us because we helped changed your life. 


Sometimes every day feels like a Monday when it comes to exercising.  Or, even worse, the Monday after you return to work from the best vacation ever.  (*thumbs down and sad face emoji’s*)

(It’s a fact that Monday’s are like a giant bucket of cow patties dropped on your new shirt and perfect hair day–not exactly something to get excited about.)

 If exercise is something you dread you’re not going to do it.

I can help you with that.

I’ll tell you which fitness videos are fun, boring, complicated, too long, too short, or require too much equipment.  

I’ll tell you how many calories I burn and exactly what information you’ll want to know (or be reminded of) before you hit play.

I can help you get excited about your next workout.

Let me tell you all the tools you’ll need and what exercises to expect so you can focus on form and having fun.

Here’s how my exercise video reviews and fitness tips can make your workouts easier (and better…and more like a Friday than a Monday):

#1 The Plan

You plan out vacations, meals, your weekends, and every second of your kids’ lives.  Why should your workout schedule be any less important?

It’s impossible to remember what equipment you need for every workout video you own.

Unfortunately, most of us are too tired to put much thought into our workout by the time we get to it every day.

You wish you could remember all the details about equipment, length, and difficulty of all those exercise videos you own but who can keep up with that minutia when you can barely remember who has piano at 5 and gymnastics at 6?

Let me give you all the information you need to use those exercise videos you have at home.

During lunch or before bed you can pull up my site and read through the detailed summaries of the videos you have access to and plan out exactly what your next workout (at home) will be.

I’ll give you of all the information you need for each exercise video: equipment used, time required, how much space you need, and how challenging the workout is/is not.

All you have to do is write it on your calendar, pick your outfit, and show up.

You’re welcome:-)

#2 The Selection

We all get excited about fitness when we buy new shoes, tights, or workout tools.  (PRO Tip-Purchase whatever keeps you motivated to work out.)

It’s easy to decide what pattern we like on a pair of running tights but it can be hard trying to decide which video(s) to invest in.

Who hasn’t bought an exercise video (or entire series) only to discover that you really need ankle weights, a chin-up bar, or fancy tubing (which you don’t have) to execute the workout?  It’s frustrating.

Investigate which individual videos or entire series of videos you’re thinking about buying by pulling them up on my site.

I’ll tell you what equipment you’ll need, how long every workout on the video is, and just how hard (or easy) it is.

I can help you make a smart purchase that will ultimately lead you to a more effective exercise routine.

#3 The Individual

So many great videos out there seem to be for men!

I’ll tell you how I (a woman) modify every workout so it’s effective for me, too.

Tip-Women can do all of those workouts marketed to men.  (Body Beast is one of my favorite workouts.)

I don’t have that equipment!

I’ll tell you what equipment is a must for each video, as well as what you can use as an adequate substitution/modification.

I’m not that strong!

I’ll tell you exactly what weights I use and how many reps I do for every exercise in every review so you’ll have a reference point for yourself.

Print the post out or pull it up on your phone when you’re doing the program and let my information be a starting point as you’re figuring out what works for your body.
