Weight training for women
“I love lifting! I want a regular lifting session where I receive expert coaching and the support and encouragement to aim high.”
What your issues tend to be
You’ve learned the basics of lifting and you’ve caught the bug!
But you struggle to find people to train with and coaches who really know weight training for women and understand what you want.
You want to be part of a community of like-minded people, as no-one in your life is interested in lifting or ‘gets’ why you love it so much.
You want to stay motivated and accountable so that you can make real progress, even when life gets in the way. You may have plateaued in your progress recently and you’re not sure how to get over this.
“The best result is that I know where my limits are, but not in a negative way. Before, I was trying a little bit of weight and then stopping, mainly because I was scared of what would happen if I tried more weight or if I tried a new exercise, and the fear was definitely affecting my progress. So I know how far I CAN go now, and it’s a lot further than I thought!” – Amy L
You want to challenge yourself. You need support, encouragement and a great training environment to get you where you want to be.

What you need right now
You need a regular weight training for women session, contact with a coach and training buddies.
You need a regular date in the diary to keep you accountable. You want to be surrounded by people who have similar goals and aspirations to you.
You want to feel like you are making progress and that you could achieve great things in the future. You have made a change in your life and you are in this for the long haul.
The weight training for women class that will suit you best is the INTERMEDIATE class
The Ladies Who Lift Intermediate class is for people who have been lifting for 3 months or more and can competently perform a barbell squat and barbell deadlift. Having perhaps reached a plateau, you need help to bust through that plateau and start making progress again!
