KickAss Radio welcomes Val Solomon and Erica Willick, creators of GORGO Women’s Fitness Magazine, to talk about their all-digital women’s fitness magazine, called GORGO, set to launch on November 1 and why they think people need or want a new magazine with all the information available online. Listen in as they share how they got connected on this kind of business venture and their thoughts on how women get fitness information these days.

Val Solomon, a mother of 4 boys and military wife from Ft. Meade, Maryland, is no stranger to fitness nor the world of social media. Val built her social media following to 50,000+ in two years with her brand of living a fit life FOR her children, instead of being fit in spite of four kids.

Erica Willick, a mother, accountant and wife from London, Ontario, went from being a fit but fairly shy office professional to being a favorite Oxygen magazine fitness model, an international cover girl and a Pro Bikini Model champion in one year.

They connected thanks to a shared passion for empowering women in fitness, but noted a diet quick-fix and gimmick-ridden trend that was prevalent in fitness magazines on the newsstand. The pair believe women are craving more challenge, as well as more real information to inspire themselves to make healthy changes that last.
