FiA Charleston officially launched on June 13, 2015 under the iconic Arthur Ravenel Bridge with 60 PAX. The first beach-front AO was launched soon thereafter on Isle of Palms. FiA Charleston has since expanded to a total of 9 AOs across the Charleston area with a variety of times and locations, and now has a consistent amount of PAX posting weekly. From meeting out on the beach to a football stadium, we love to reach women all across the Lowcountry by providing fellowship, a great workout and a devotional to kick start your day.
FIA Charleston's logo was a collaboration of thoughts between Ginger and Cajun Queen, with the actual design being executed by Cajun Queen. The Mother Emanuel tragedy occurred in mere days after our initial launch. We knew we wanted to incorporate what Charleston was known for in the weeks after; Charleston Strong was everywhere. We believe that our FiA Charleston PAX embody that powerful mantra. Together we are strong. We are Charleston. We will overcome anything. Ginger brought the idea to Cajun Queen to utilize the bridge, a place where we meet weekly as well as a Charleston monument. The idea was born.
