What do our customers say about the Olympic Weightlifting beginners workshop?
“I was buzzing after the course yesterday. I love learning new stuff and expanding my training options, and as I said the course exceeded my expectations in every way!”
– Sam N, Olympic Lifting Beginners Workshop
“Just wanted to say thank you for organising and running the course yesterday! It was very well structured & put together. My lower body felt far less stiff in the gym today, once warmed up I even managed a minute sitting in a deep squat with my toes pointed forward; miraculous for me!! ”

– Amina A
