Over the holidays, I had the pleasure of working on Barbara’s site for her powerlifting training business, Relentless Power Systems.
RPS is a training system made up of a team of individuals who want to teach others about making life changes that will benefit their clients inside and outside of the gym.
Okay, before I go on, I have to tell you that this lady has some serious guns and by that I mean muscle! I just had to get that out there because I was like totally impressed!
Anyway, moving right along!
About The Design
Barbara wanted her site to focus on her and team’s upcoming events, a library for her free powerlifting resources and a shop to sell her products. She also wanted to showcase her team
She didn’t have a theme in mind. But she knew she wanted something simple for her site yet would look good on mobile devices.
I started with the Aspire Pro theme but it wasn’t working with the layout Barbara had in mind for her homepage. So, I moved on over to Outreach Pro but it just wasn’t coming together either. The main issue I was having was getting the header to fit.
In the end, I went to the tried and true – the Lifestyle Pro* theme by StudioPress.
This theme has been around for a while but it’s been kept up with updates. Since this theme has a wide header space so I was able to adjust the size in order to make the logo fit without distorting the image.
For the Events and Resources page, I used the Post Table Pro Plugin*. I have to admit, at first I didn’t think this plugin was going to work for me but it worked out perfectly! It’s definitely worth the investment to upgrade!
Not only that but when I emailed support over one weekend, I got help right away. Shout out to Katie for being so helpful and replying to my emails on a Sunday night!
To showcase Barbara’s team in the table format, I used the TablePress plugin.
Both these plugins are easy to set up and use.
So here’s what the Lifestyle Pro theme originally looks like:
And here is what the theme looks like after making customizations:
I want to thank Barbara for the opportunity to work on her website! She had so much patience while we tried to find the perfect theme for her site. You rock lady!
