Women on Weights

Check back in Fall 2019 to see upcoming dates and registration!

Women on Weights is a program designed to help women feel more comfortable in the weight room and get excited about training to become STRONG! In each session, the trainers will go over form and technique as well as how to build your own weightlifting program! This program will benefit the beginner lifters as well as intermediate lifters.

Looking to Collaborate?

If you are a student group looking to co-sponsor an event, please contact Lauren Kline, Fitness Coordinator of Wellness & Special Events: lkline@american.edu.
