Strong Women follows some of Australia’s top professional athletes competing in the sport of Strongman. These women are daughters, mothers and wives; and throughout the series they share some of their most intimate moments juggling their personal and professional lives.

Through their personal stories, we see these women gain strength, sacrifice relationships, struggle with injuries and celebrate their achievements. There is something about the sport of Strongman that is resonating with women in Australia – the positive social environment, the tangible measure of growth and the empowerment of the challenge.
