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. 


Over the last 5 years of testing and reviewing 100’s of different home workout programs we’ve compiled a list of the ones that we love for (male and female) high school athletes (of any sport).

Let’s face it. The coaches and trainers of your teenagers have gotten really smart about the best ways to get your kids in top shape for whatever sport they’re playing. But they only have so much time with your athlete and it’s up to your kids to navigate the best workouts to do on their own that will get them at peak performance.

We love these 3 programs because they’re fun, taught by pro trainers and offer overall conditioning (rather than laser-focused training for the skills used in specific sports).

These programs can be used to supplement an athlete’s in-season workouts or used in the off-season to stay in shape.

All 3 of these programs are just one of the options found inside 2 different on-demand libraries. So, the good news is that if your high school athlete doesn’t like the program you signed up to try there are 100’s of other options to test out.

The final (obvious) benefit to signing up for any one of these on-demand libraries is that now everyone in your house can workout from home.

Let’s get started…
