Gemma Ferguson Sturdy By Design Ambassador

I’ve recently been given the opportunity to become an ambassador for Sturdy By Design and I’m so pleased to be able to represent such a fantastic brand.

I’ve always been into my fitness after serving 9 years in the armed forces with the Royal Corp if Signals.

I left the Army in 2012 and struggled massively with my transition into civilian life I became depressed and soon found myself overweight and unhappy with my life.

One day while deadlifting in the gym one of the staff pointed out that I was quite strong and would I consider entering a strongwoman contest! I entered Worthing’s strongest woman 2016 and having not had much training I surprised myself and came 2nd, I was hooked!

Enough was enough I was going to make a change before it was too late! I embarked on a clean eating a gym regime and fell in love with weightlifting.

Sturdy By Design Ambassador Program

At Sturdy By Design we understand that there is no better way to get genuine feedback on a product than from someone with experience.

Our Ambassadors are used to training hard and can easily tell you a good pair of leggings from a bad pair so we’re very proud that they are confident enough in our products to take on the positions of a Sturdy By Design Ambassador.
