I run regular weight training and olympic lifting courses through my company Strength Ambassadors. I have a number of courses coming up in the remainder of 2013 in central London, UK. If you want to improve your strength or even start from scratch, there could be a course for you! Read on to find out what’s available.
1. Olympic lifting for beginners
The perfect environment to try the snatch and the clean & jerk for the first time, or improve your existing technique.
I believe my course is unique due to my background: I’m a competitive weightlifter by hobby (I won a bronze in the British championships this year), and I’m also a personal trainer working with ordinary people. I’m used to dealing with a range of abilities, from those with mobility restrictions, people who don’t have much gym experience, to weekend warriors and serious amateur athletes.
If you’re struggling with an aspect of technique, you won’t be left alone in a corner to get along as best you can; you’ll be coached through the process.
On the other hand, if you’re a strong, mobile athlete you won’t be expected to lift PVC pipe for 2 hours (actually no-one lifts PVC pipe in my classes). Weightlifting is a strength sport, after all!
Male or female, experienced gym rat or newbie, you’ll be well catered for. You’d be surprised at how humbling the olympic lifts can be, even if you think you’re strong. That’s part of the fun and fascination of weightlifting!

2. Ladies Who Lift
A women-friendly way to learn how to train with free weights, confidently and correctly!
This is my flagship course, which has been running now for several years. It covers everything women need to know to train with weights in the gym.
Where relevant, I teach women-specific aspects of weight training because, although broadly women can and should train in a similar way to men, we usually have different goals and different qualities/aesthetics that we want to develop – hence there are subtle differences in training methods.
But the big advantage of this course is that I teach weight training from a woman’s point of view; I don’t assume any knowledge at the get-go and I understand your fears, needs and motivation as I’ve been there myself.
I get a huge variety of women on this course, all wanting much the same thing! Don’t believe me? Check out the video!
The next course starts in November 2013. Ladies Who Lift course details.
