This Live402 Happy Hour, our special guest is Cheri Dickmeyer, Founder of FitGirl Inc. In June 2015, FITGirl, Inc Founder & Executive Director, Cheri Dickmeyer, felt the community was in need of a summer camp that focused on both fitness and empowerment for teen girls. Through personal experience with two teen daughters of her own, Cheri wanted to develop a program that would help middle school and high school girls deal with anxiety, bullying, body image, self esteem, friendships and fitness.

The camp idea was initially born from Cheri’s experience running an online health and wellness magazine. Within 30 days after the idea of a fitness camp was thrown around, Cheri developed a summer program in July asking for help from some of the best fitness and empowerment coaches in Omaha. The camp created a media frenzy with an outpouring of support and validation from parents throughout the metro area. FITGirl, Inc. now offers monthly workshops, empowerment classes, yoga, fitness, dance, self defense classes and a three day, overnight summer camp every July! It is more than an empowerment program - it is a movement!

Cheri graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing from University of Nebraska at Omaha as well as an Associate of Applied Science in Photography. She spent the last 10 years running a full service marketing firm, and four years evolving a health and wellness magazine. Cheri’s primary goal today is the growth and expansion of FITGirl Inc., a non-profit organization with plans on growing to cities outside of Omaha.

In her spare time, Cheri enjoys traveling, photography & art, attending sporting events, spending time with her family, volunteering, speaking, writing and catching up with good friends.
