Strength Redefined

Gymtimidation is real!

Why Strength Redefined?
This event is tailor-made for those:

  1. New to weightlifting or fitness
  2. Feeling uneasy or daunted in a gym setting.
  3. Seeking to understand and make the most of the Fitness Center.

What's in Store?

  1. Educational Insights: Each session offers unique learning opportunities to enhance your fitness journey.
  2. Inclusive Atmosphere: We welcome allies who envision a Fitness Center that's inviting for everyone and has a reduced capacity.
  3. Community Building: Celebrate every effort and every milestone with a community that understands and uplifts you, regardless of your experience level.

You’re not alone! Survey responses indicate that the Fitness Center is an uncomfortable and intimidating space for some individuals. Strength Redefined is a night for those that don’t typically use the Fitness Center, or use it less often, because they are new to weightlifting/fitness, feel uncomfortable or intimidated in our normal environment. Educational opportunities will be available each night. Allies, who want to redefine the Fitness Center into a more comfortable space for all are welcome to attend. Come find your community where we celebrate the efforts and goals accomplished no matter your experience level. Online registration is required 30 minutes in advance of the session start. This event will be held every other Tuesday night during the semester from 6-7:30pm.
