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
Fitness Lover. Dog Mom. Foodie.

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

My Passion for Fitness

I became a personal trainer out of high school and went to the University of New Hampshire for Athletic Training, where I was able to work with all of the sports teams and see them through their injury prevention and rehab. 

As much as I loved working with athletes and being in a team setting, my real love was found working with people individually. 6 months before graduating college, I started an internship at GAIN Strength & Conditioning and I knew that that side of fitness was where I was meant to be. 

Over the years, I’ve worked with a wide variety of clients in a range of facilities. Each place I trained at taught me something different, it taught me what I wanted and what I didn’t want. Which I’m incredibly grateful for, because it has brought me here today. It has led me to opening my own studio, where I am able to make a difference for everyone who walks through the Women In Strength doors. 

My goal is to provide the best experience possible for my clients. I want to promote consistency and commitment to oneself and their goals, as well as grow a community of strong women!
