Strength for Life

Our name, Strength for Life came about after many hours of brainstorming. We wanted a name that expressed our philosophy about being fit and healthy. Fitness and strength training has had a major influence in both of our lives.

Strength training has helped us develop internal confidence in our abilities both personally and professionally. Achieving success comes from persistence, planning, and pushing yourself. Progress is not linear. Success is self-determined and failure is an opportunity to reflect, learn, change and grow.

Strength for Life is about developing strength in all areas of life and applying them to become the best possible version of ourselves. To live our best lives possible we need to develop strength in three key areas, physical, intellectual and emotional strength.

Physical strength develops through consistently challenging the muscular and neurological systems of our body. All aspects of strength are built upon a capacity for exertion and endurance. Strength is developed through habits, effort and discipline.

Intellectual strength develops through lifelong learning, reflection, curiosity and keeping an open mind. Wisdom, the highest level of intellectual strength begins by accessing information, using information to gain knowledge and ultimately combining knowledge with experience.

Emotional strength involves the exercise of will to accomplish goals in the face of opposition both external and internal. Persistence, integrity, enthusiasm, energy, and bravery are key components of emotional strength. Facing challenges, threats, difficulty or pain and acting on our convictions take emotional strength. Other aspects of emotional strength include sharing and caring for others, compassion, generosity and nurturing others.

We recognize the challenge and effort required to build strength in our lives. Our goal at Strength for Life is to help you acquire the skills needed to be physically, intellectually and emotionally strong.
We are fortunate to be located on a site with a rich history. The property has been the site of a mill complex since the mid 1700's. In its 240 year history, the site has been a grist mill, saw mill, cotton, paper and dye mill. The mill transformed raw materials into products that provided nourishment, clothing, and shelter.

Our logo design reflects the strength found in a mill wheel and pays homage to the history of our location. The saw tooth wheel represents transformation in all aspects of our life.

At Strength for Life, we recognize that we are all a work in progress. We are here to provide the stimulus for change in your life. Strength for Life is the mill wheel that helps you transform yourself into the best possible you.
