WonderBar! The Olympic Lifts: strength training for women. Sat 20 October 2-5pm

The WonderBar! sessions are strength training workshops for women, by women. Our mission is to turn you into a strong, sleek, functional fit-chick!
The Olympic Lifts are the ultimate in barbell weightlifting: they are a test of speed, strength, explosive movement, balance, and when executed with skill – are beautiful, graceful.
We can teach YOU to do it too.
NB: For this session, there is no previous experience necessary. You don’t need to have attended a previous WonderBar! session, or Crossfit beginners. All you’ll need is average fitness and above, and a willingness to learn.
If your unsure what that means for you, read this first before booking.
The 3-hour workshop includes (using all the scaling and assistance needed):
The Olympic lifts:
The snatch
The clean-and-jerk

Before you learn how to ‘move like Zoe’, you’ll be taken step-by-step through the supporting moves which include deadlift, front squat, overhead squat and presses.

The seminars are run by a team of qualified women of experience, passion and boundless enthusiasm for their subject; and are taught in an all-female, friendly, fun and supportive atmosphere. Will suit women of all ages.

Price £40

Out of interest, here’s an extract from an inspirational article in The Telegraph on Zoe Smith’s record-breaking clean-and-jerk at London 2012. Still aged only 18, she is our weightlifting heroine!

“To lift that, that, thing. If they do, you cry. If they don’t, you also cry. And when women do it, (Olympic Weightlifting) which is only since Sydney 2000, it becomes empowering – changing expectations and preconceptions. When a young, pretty, articulate girl like Smith chooses to do it and does not give a damn about having muscly arms and is proud of her powerful body, it is time to whoop for joy.”
