Strength. We often associate it with the physical first. Muscles. Weights. Reps.
At Healthworks Group, we think of strength a little differently.
Strength is stepping outside your comfort zone. It’s accepting some discomfort to make progress. It’s a willingness to stick with it even if you might not be very good at it right away. It’s about putting yourself out there to make new connections or enter a friendly competition for the first time.
That’s the strength we’re about.
Don’t get us wrong. We know strength training is good for your body, too. It makes daily tasks easier, stimulates bone-building cells and lowers the risk of falls and injuries, but building strength also takes those other strengths we mentioned earlier.
The mental and the physical. The inner and the outer. Join us to experience all the different facets of what it means to be strong this spring and beyond:
