RVA Strong is devoted to health, wellness, and the fitness adventurer in all of us! Features include a monthly video challenge exploring a new sport/exercise with a local expert. Each month is something different will we be conquering our fear of heights through indoor rock climbing? Will we be on the James River doing paddleboard yoga? Or will we be joining the Tour of Richmond cyclists? Learn from the experts what to do – and what NOT to do – in the pursuit of new fitness challenges.
