What Is Women In Strength Fitness?

Women In Strength started as an idea on paper back in 2019.

The idea of Women In Strength really started playing in my head one summer when I ran a teen girls’ strength and conditioning camp. The camp was 8 weeks, and where I met with the girls twice a week, putting them through strength workouts with some conditioning. At the end of each session, I would provide the girls with a journal question that they would answer and come back next session to chat about. 

Over the 8 weeks, it was truly inspirational to see the changes within the girls – not only in their fitness abilities, but also how their mindsets changed towards fitness as well as themselves. 

From then on, I knew that I wanted to start something, create a place for my clients where they were comfortable, could challenge themselves, and push themselves to their fullest potential.

Women In Strength’s Mission is to promote health and wellness in all that we do – that means our mental, emotional, and physical well-being.

Our focus at Women In Strength is heavily on our Core Values – the 3 C’s.



Committing to your health and we are committed to you every step of the way.


Show up every day, for yourself and your goals. We’ll be there to keep you on track and honest.


Through our individual journeys, we can share our stories and support each other.

We strive to create an environment that encourages commitment and consistency to one’s health and goals. As well as provide a community to the women of Wilmington to have a team of people cheering them on as they conquer life’s challenges.

Hello, I'm Mariah!

Founder of Women In Strength Fitness

Mariah has been an athlete since a young age, starting in swimming, horseback riding, running, and volleyball. Over the years, fitness has changed for her, but there’s always been one constant: Her Passion for Fitness

Mariah became a personal trainer shortly after graduating high school, and proceeded to the University of New Hampshire for Athletic Training, where she was able to work with a variety of sports teams and see them through their injury prevention and rehab. 

As much as Mariah loved working with athletes and being in a team setting, her real love was found working with people individually. Shortly before graduating from UNH, she started an internship at GAIN Strength & Conditioning and quickly fell in love with that side of fitness. 

Over the years, Mariah has worked with a wide variety of clients in a range of facilities. Those experiences have led her to opening her own studio, where she’s able to make a difference for everyone who walks through the Women In Strength doors. 

Mariah’s goal is to provide the best experience possible for her clients. She strives to promote consistency and commitment to oneself and their goals, as well as grow a community of strong wome

Meet Monica!

Trainer | Nutritionist

Fitness has always been a part of Monica’s life.  She was an avid runner for years, and when a couple of injuries occurred back-to-back she was encouraged to add resistance training into her routine. She did, and soon after that decided to pursue a certification in personal training. Now, strength training is a passion, but Monica loves a good sweat session, whatever that may be (cycling, lifting, hot yoga, etc.).  
After Monica had her first child (who is now three years old), she found that there weren’t many resources or programs for women instructing them how to get back into exercise safely after pregnancy.  Monica quickly became certified in pregnancy and postpartum exercise, and pelvic floor and core training so that she could understand how  to regain strength and function in muscles that had changed during pregnancy.  
Monica also has a deep love for nutrition, holds an M.S. in Nutrition and is a certified nutrition coach.  
She has been working with clients for 6+ years, and it lights her up to empower others to reach their health and fitness goals!
