“We're wasting time counting calories instead of becoming the president.” — Cadence Dubus, founder, Brooklyn Strength

 “The concern here is with your health — it’s not about ‘Lift your butt! Squeeze those thighs!’” says Jemima Kirke of HBO's GIRLS. “It took me a little while to accept that I could get a tough workout and not be suffering” — and, grabbing the flesh between her derriere and upper thigh, she adds, “be okay with certain annoying bits that just aren’t going to go away.”

It’s not easy to take the shaming out of the fitness world, but Dubus, who has studied holistic health and nutrition for the past 17 years, is somewhat of an evangelist for the every girl. “The impetus is always to get skinny,” she says, alluding to trending barre regimes and group workout programs. “My focus is to get you strong.” T Magazine NY Times March 24, 2015
