Women & Weights

What’s driving the growth in strength training among women

Tuesday, July 9 11am PST/2pm EST

Weight lifting is rapidly growing in popularity, prompting gyms to downsize their banks of treadmills and ellipticals to make room for squat racks and dumbbells. While men are part of this trend, the real growth is largely due to a new interest among women in strength training.

Join Sarah Marion, Director of the State of Our Health research program at Murphy Research, and special guest Amanda Hillman, Consumer Insights & Strategy leader at 24 Hour Fitness, as they explore the factors behind this trend and ways to support women looking for weights!
