We added a new type of class to the schedule: its the “guest Olympic weight lifting Instructor class” We know loads of interesting Olympic weight lifters who are happy to come along and share for an hour and this will be your opportunity to gain extra perspective on the lifts by working with some of the “names” in British ( and other Countries) Olympic lifting.

1st up on this new class is David Mannion. I his own words:

From the age of 17 I have been doing weight training and weightlifting:

I became British Students and British Universities champion in Olympic Lifting and Powerlifting in 1984
I was at one time North East England Powerlifting and Olympic Lifting champion in the years 1982-84.In the last 10 years I have been involved in weightlifting in the London and South East region:
