Playing sports growing up introduced me to the fitness lifestyle - teaching me how to lift. I decided to keep achieving my goals from there.

Meet MADDI RICKSHAM
"Hey guys!! My name is Maddi Ricksham and I am from Elk River, Minnesota. I started lifting in High School because I wanted to get stronger and healthier. I also started my Instagram Fitness page at that same time to help encourage others (especially women) to start lifting and focus on getting stronger, rather than just wanting to be 'skinny.' My goal is to help inspire and motivate others to want to better themselves every single day."
Q&A with MADDI RICKSHAM
WHAT GOT YOU INTO THE FITNESS LIFESTYLE
Who are your Heroes and why
Someone that is huge role model to me is Andy Frisella. Listening to his podcasts, he is very motivating and he also inspires me to have the mindset to better myself every day.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE YOU LIVE BY
"The best investment you can ever make is in your own health." I love this quote because I believe that taking care of your own health is the best thing you can do for yourself.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE EXERCISE OF ALL TIME
I absolutely love doing RDL's.
WHAT DOES "REIGN FROM WITHIN" MEAN TO YOU
To me, it means bettering yourself from the inside-out every day and being consistent with the healthy life choices you make.
WHAT'S YOUR BIGGEST MOTIVATION (WHAT KEEPS YOU GOING)
Seeing progress in myself keeps me pushing myself hard.
HOW HAS STREIGNTH CHANGED YOUR LIFE
Being a part of Streignth has changed my life by being surrounded, and working with like-minded, hard working people. As well as, being part of not just a community, but a family that supports each other and all share the same interests.
Maddi's always been big into fitness- throwback to 2016 when she won "lifter of the week" at her high school. She says it was on Twitter and everything- big time.
Outside of lifting, Maddi LOVES to travel and explore new places. She talks about how someday she wants to live somewhere warm down south like Florida.
From the moment we met Maddi, we knew she'd be the perfect fit with our team. We are excited to have her now one of the main faces of Streignth. This is just the beginning...
