Artemis is a former ballet dancer turned Kung Fu black belt, and the ninth woman in the world, and the lightest and smallest to date, to complete The Iron Maiden Challenge (a 24kg Pull-up, Pistol Squat, and Strict Military Press).
Artemis’ love for kettlebells and strength training drove her to open her own hardstyle kettlebell and training gym in Boston, Massachusetts, Iron Body Studios. She recently closed Iron Body Studios and moved to Las Vegas, Nevada with her spouse, (fellow StrongFirst Instructor, Athletic Trainer, and Head Therapist for Cirque du Soleil), Eric Gahan. She now trains clients in person and online through her new company, Iron Body Training Systems in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Artemis seeks to empower women through strength as she continues to encourage and inspire women to not be afraid to lift weights and she swears by kettlebell training and strength training, as she states: “Kettlebell training and strength training not only strengthened and changed my body, but also my mindset.”
