MISSION

To inspire and support others through inclusive events and opportunities focused on the benefits of training for strength.

 

CORE VALUES

 

The Women’s Strength Coalition is committed to:

 

  • Increasing Access: We seek to break down barriers to strength training, while acknowledging and dismantling the privilege that makes it prohibitive to many.

 

  • Strength for All: We are a platform for diverse voices, and as such remain dedicated to uplifting all experiences equally.

 

  • Collaboration: We provide support and visibility for existing nonprofits and organizations that align with our mission, as a way to make greater, sustainable change.

 

  • Meaningful Partnerships: We are building a network of community leaders, like-minded fitness professionals, and affiliate gyms, to unify and strengthen efforts on a larger scale.
