WonderBar! Strength training masterclass for women

WonderBar strength training for women

WonderBar! is a women-only masterclass on real strength training – by women, for women. I’ve been asked to help instruct the afternoon, along with female trainers from Crossfit London. I can’t wait to meet a new host of women wanting to get into strength training!

The class is on Saturday 19th May in London. This is the first one – if it’s a roaring success, hopefully there will be more!

The class is suitable for all ages and fitness levels – we are keen to get as many women involved in strength training as possible.

It’s going to be a fun, friendly atmosphere and full of inspiration, so come along and bring your female friends too. You can work at your own level – all exercises will be scaled as appropriate.

For you fans of strength, this is a great opportunity to persuade a sceptical mate that strength training is eminently do-able, fun and effective.

We will focus on the deadlift, the overhead press, the back squat and the pull-up, classic strength exercises that work the whole body. You will be taken through technique step by step, with encouragement all the way.

And I’m sure there’ll be chances to ply the expert team of instructors with any other questions you have.

The masterclass takes place at Crossfit London’s gym in London, E2. You can book via the Crossfit London website here.

I hope to see you there. Let me know if you’re coming along!

    Booked and really looking forward to meeting you there, as I’m a great fan of your site. I’ve gone as far as I can working out with heavy dumbbells, but dare not use barbells on my own when I might not be using proper form.

    I signed up for your newsletter at the end of February, but haven’t received one yet? Are your newsletters quarterly? I would have missed the information about the Wonder Bar day if I had relied solely on getting it by email!

    Hi Erika,
    Excellent, look forward to meeting you!
    Don’t worry, you haven’t missed anything – I haven’t sent out a newsletter for a while. All newsletters are archived on the website anyway.
    I’ll be sending one out soon for people who haven’t visited for a while and might not have seen this post.

    Oh no!
    I just missed this. Is there another one planned?
    I am just starting out so would love to meet women who can give me some advice (and encouragement!)

    Hi Noreen,

    There is likely to be another one at some point, but in the meantime, why not do my Ladies Who Lift course? It’s more in depth so might be better for you if you are just starting out. It’s also women-only, so an ideal place to meet like-minded women. All the details (and a video) are at:
