Why Pick Our Class

I wanted to create a practical class with a non judgemental environment. Exclusively for ladies who want to learn how to lift. It’s ideal for complete beginners who want to start lifting through to advanced lifters who want to improve. Most gym goers don’t get the full benefits from an exercise as the technical movement isn’t executed correctly. Most people have the strength to do pull ups they just don't understand how to fire the muscles correctly.The class will be a small group of 6-8 ladies of all different fitness and skill levels. I’ve been lifting for 30 years and I still think there is always room for improvement. The small classes are to enable everyone to receives-

  1. Enough time under the bar to feel confident to continue practicing after the session
  2. Enables participants to get the most from the session. 


Why Weights For Women

As the landscape of gyms are changing and many women are seeing the benefits of lifting weights correctly. Like increase long term fat loss, shaping your body optimally, improving health and posture. No longer is the weights area male dominated and ladies have realised girls who lift are toned, lean and strong. Dispelling one of the longest running weight loss and fitness myths that who lift weights, you will get ‘bulky’. I’d say in the past year 4 out 5 email enquiries for personal training have been from women who want to learn how to lift and get the benefits from the weights area. 

Not only that is so much fun adding weight to a bar over time.

The popularity of the class is great and it books up pretty quick which has surpassed my expectation for the class. I really enjoy teaching the classes even though it has  been hard work writing the PDF and formatting the classes it has really become my highlight of the week watching everyone improve.
