​​The Strength Saga

Inspired by research and experience

About Us


The Strength Saga was created by two friends as a place to discuss the journey involved in reaching their fitness goals. Whether you're a first time gym goer or a professional body builder, everyone is training with a goal in mind. Reaching these goals is not a sprint but often a marathon; we're here to tell the stories of those who have completed or are currently on their journeys and provide our readers with tools to help them achieve their goals. 

There's a massive amount of fitness writing online with a huge range of quality. We know that sifting through these articles can be frustrating. It's our goal to provide quality original articles inspired by experience and science. Our writers are highly involved in the health and wellness fields; they keep up to date with the latest trends and phenomena. We want to pass this information on to our readers. We focus on the journey to strength, not just the end results. We highlight personal stories, trends in the exercise and health fields, exciting products and so much more! It is our hope that with this website we can inspire and inform those trying to reach their own fitness goals, whatever they may be.
