About this class

Come to learn to lift without any sweaty gym bros hanging over you! We'll be practicing lifting weights mindfully and joyfully in an inclusive gym setting. We'll focus on the three main movements of powerlifting (squat, bench press, and deadlift). But don't be deterred if any of those aren't right for your body, we can always make substitutions and find the movements that feel good for you.

I'll lead you through variations, exploring each movement pattern unweighted, doing it with dumbbells or kettlebells, and using barbells. The biggest thing that you'll take away is the knowledge of how to lift safely, choose the appropriate weights or intensity for a given exercise, and make each lift work for you.

We'll start with a group mobility warm-up. Then I'll introduce the moves that we'll be working with that day, and explain the format of the workouts. After that, we'll set up stations and break off into groups and pairs. As you're going through the movements I'll visit each group and help with choosing weights, making modifications as necessary to avoid discomfort/pain, improving technique, and answering questions. We will end with a short cooldown stretching session.

Who is this activity designed for?

This class is perfect for anyone who wants to get in touch with their own inner strength, learn the mechanics of lifting weights, and have fun in a gym space that is 100% shame-free.

You DO NOT need to be a Gym Person (TM) to enjoy powerlifting. Whether you've never set foot in a gym before or you're a powerlifting pro, you will leave this class feeling strong AF!

What is provided?

We will provide all necessary equipment for lifting: barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, medicine balls, etc.

What should you bring?

A water bottle is never a bad idea, and you'll be able to fill it up on site. If you own any special gear that makes you feel comfortable working out (shoes, wrist wraps, knee braces, etc) please feel free to bring that too. Please wear clothing that you are comfortable moving around in.
