"Girls can be strong. There really are no limitations. You can do what you set your mind to."
In my interview with Meagan, we talk about how she loves competing on a gender-neutral platform on American Ninja Warrior, her experience as a pro rock climber, how her parents have inspired her, and pursuing her dream to be an actress.
What To Know Before You Listen
Meagan is part of "The Wolfpack," which is a close group of friends in Colorado who rock climb and all compete on American Ninja Warrior. The Wolfpack consists of Meagan Martin, Noah Kaufman, Brian Arnold, and Ian Dory. The Wolfpack is on a mission to fight childhood obesity and encourage people to be healthy. They have an awesome podcast, which I listen to weekly, where they interview all of the American Ninja Warriors, discuss a variety of topics related to health (both inwardly and outwardly), and give some handy healthy tips. They're always fun and inspiring, and sometimes make me emotional with their stories, and I love it! In addition to the podcast, they are going on a super fun tour-you can see what it's all about here.
