I have participated in StrongWomen for the past 8 years. My physicians remark how it has helped to maintain my healthy lifestyle. I feel better both physically and mentally. My bone strength has been challenged due to my medications- but with StrongWomen my bone density is now normal.

StrongWomen Rock County has improved my balance and strength. However, one of the best parts is the conversation and laughter. What a wonderful way to start the day. My favorite is the regular classes(3x/week) which encourages participation.
