Founder and strength coach
Hi, I’m Sally.
I love sharing my passion for lifting weights with others. The thing I love most about lifting is feeling strong and powerful. I also like the challenge and the sense of achievement I get from making progress, however small.
My mission is to provide a safe and supportive place for you to learn to lift and continue to improve your strength for the long term.
I first walked into a gym in my twenties to lose a bit of weight and get fit. I never thought that it would be my career. However, after trying several different careers and being disappointed in them, I decided to take the plunge and follow my passion: sharing my love of strength training with others.
I’ve enjoyed competing in powerlifting and weightlifting for the last fifteen years. I’m a qualified coach in both sports. I’ve been British Masters champion (2017) and British Senior bronze medallist (2013) in olympic weightlifting. Over the years I’ve worked for and learned from great coaches and practitioners in strength training.
My favourite moments as a coach are when my athletes start to make decisions for themselves and take charge of their own progress. Then I know that I’ve paid it forward and created something sustainable.
