The RA's StrongWomen Stream

Enjoy the path into more physical activity while building confidence and competence. The RA’s The StrongWomen stream consists of welcoming and progressive classes led by trained fitness professionals in an inclusive and social, small group setting. Participants enjoy the benefits of exercising with a group of women, not only getting stronger physically, but also benefiting from improved self-esteem and self-efficacy.  The RA's StrongWomen Stream offers a progression of classes beginning with the introductory StrongWomenTM class, followed by a Next Phase class and complemented by the Continuum series of classes.


StrongWomenTM – We're Back! 

The StrongWomenTM class is designed for women with little or no experience with strength training who are interested in improving health, getting stronger, gaining confidence, and enjoying social connectedness.
