NORWALK - A Norwalk gym owner has entered a competition where she'll be striving for the title of 'America's Strongest Woman.'

Stephanie Tropea, who owns the Punch Kettlebell Gym, says she got into strength training and competitions five years ago and kept up with it because she said she found it fun. She's currently ranked as the third strongest woman in the country in her division.

Tropea says she trains five to six days a week and feels confident that she'll be able to win her latest competition, which will happen in Texas in October.
