Milou de Winter: “Being strong means to me that I surprise myself with what I can do.”
Have you ever heard that you are becoming too muscular? Or do you regularly wonder whether you still feel feminine? ‘Stronger than your boyfriend’ is a campaign that we started with Arie Boomsma (Vondelgym) to combat body shaming. This video series is about femininity, beauty ideals and the love for training. Every week a new episode will appear online in which a strong woman is central. This week Milou de Winter .
Milou de Winter did not opt for a job at an office, but for a job in the gym, after studying Sociology and Public Administration. She started as a crossfit trainer at the Vondelgym. In the gym she finds her happiness when she makes progress and breaks her personal records. Milou: “I find it special to surprise myself with what I can.” Her many training has led to a strong physical. Something that does not go unnoticed, she gets questions from boys about her body and how she has become so broad. Wondering what she thinks of it? Take a look at the fourth edition of STYB with Milou de Winter.
