What Is Autoimmune Strong?
Autoimmune Strong is the first exercise program designed for people living with autoimmune disease. Andrea Wool, the personal trainer and the founder of Autoimmune Strong, takes you through a series of instructional and workout videos designed to help you exercise safely, gaining strength, flexibility and mobility without triggering an exercise induced symptom flare-up.
What is Autoimmune Strong Small Group Coaching?
The Autoimmune Strong Small Group Coaching Program is a more personalized way of experiencing the Autoimmune Strong program. Like the standard Autoimmune Strong members, the small group members will watch the exercise videos and move their way through the program. What makes the small group coaching special is the extra level of personalization, encouragement, motivation, accountability and support- from both an expert coach and a group of people who are just like you.
THE PROGRAM INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING:
An expert personal trainer who specializes in exercise and autoimmune disease
Complete access to the Autoimmune Strong online video series
Weekly personalized goals that will help you stay accountable and motivated and will help you achieve your long term goals
A weekly 1h conference call where the coaches and group members come together and discuss their workouts, their successes and challenges, and set goals for the following week
A private facebook group for your small group only- so that you can communicate with your coaches and fellow members 24/7
Personalized modifications for any exercise that isn't right for your body
An accountability buddy as an extra boost of special support
It all begins with a kickoff call, where you get to meet your coaches and group members, talk in detail about the program, and set personalized long-term and short-term goals for your journey in this program.
AND, we are offering something new this fall: Nutrition Groups!
Nutrition 101: You will learn the foundations of proper nutrition and get support in motivation and accountability as you begin your diet change.

The class commitment is 8 weeks long- enough time to make some serious change to your body. By the end of the 8 weeks- you will be feeling amazing in ways you never expected!
The exercises will be done via the Autoimmune Strong video program, available 24/7.
The in person class will meet weekly, via a video conference call.

The calls will be recorded and available for playback anytime.

AND you will get to work with me, Andrea Wool, the founder, creator and personal trainer who developed Autoimmune Strong.
So- you will get private access to these amazing personal trainers who specialize in autoimmune and chronic pain exercise. We will all help you set realistic goals and motivate you and keep you accountable so that you can meet those goals! We will also provide personalized exercise modification when needed.
You will have a small group of other Autoimmune Strong members to support you, encourage you and motivate you- because you will all be going through the exercises at the same pace. This is like having an accountability buddy times 10.
Hear what current small group coaching members say:
“I love this group so much I have enrolled for 4 consecutive sessions! The workouts are fantastic- I am stronger and more flexible and more capable than I ever could have imagined. With the personal coaching, I learned how to incorporate consistent exercise into my life, listen to my body, perform the exercises at my own pace, and gain confidence in my ability in a way that I have never done before! I look forward to the weekly meetings- I love these women- it’s like meeting your friends for coffee, but getting to talk about the things that really matter.” - Susan
“Now that I have completed the small group class, I am more active now than before and am taking it one step at a time compared to the past when I’d stop everything when I had a ‘bad’ day instead of continuing. Having the other members on the calls was very helpful. Instead of giving into old patterns of feeling down on myself if I skip a day and then stopping altogether, I admitted it to the weekly group when it happened and was reminded of my accomplishments. I do feel more at ease now - and I am able to move better. “ - Katie
“I am so excited, I can feel my glutes working. I can feel my core engaging. I can see and feel muscles for the first time in forever! The best part? I can walk barefoot comfortably for the first time in 20 years. My body is changing, and I am loving it. This group has given me the gift of loving my body again.” - Pip .
“The personal coaching has been everything for me. Before I joined this group, I was scared to exercise, because I have had bad experiences with exercise before. Exercise used to wipe me out and cause me pain, but not this! The coaching has helped me get over my fears and get back on my feet, and now I am stronger than I have ever been. Plus, I learn so much listening to the experiences of the others in the class. I am grateful to be exposed to all these amazing women from all across the globe who are just like me. I have learned that I am not alone, and I have come so far.” - June
