Most of you probably don't know me because I don't really post here much anymore ... that being said, some of you might - and those that do will probably vouch for how deadly and sound I am
Anyway.. Its been ages since we ran a Ladies Learn to Lift Seminar...
The first one was back in 2010 in raw under the watchful eye of G'em and JayRoc (the latter still lurks here from time to time ). Anyway it was deadly, banter was had, things were lifted, high fives were exchanged and all was well in the world.
(Read about that one here >>> https://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/show...p?t=2055936775
Three years later he who shall not be named (lets call him Jame Shanley) and our very own weightlifing/powerlifting extraordinaire gymfreak (some of you know her too) took the reigns and did the second one in one of the previous incarnations of there that shall not be named (lets call it Jevolution Hitness) and many more excellent things were picked up and ideas exchanged.

Another 3 years went by and I ran one myself out in Sandyford... T'was might craic and I remain friends with many who attended to this day.

Now.... I hate to break with the three year cycle but I'm going to run another one because (A) I am no longer constrained by commercial gym hell and (B) why the hell not.
The plan (this next bit is a copy & paste job from the last thread)

Then we’ll spend about an hour or so talking about nutrition in general, how you can structure your own, how it can and should support your goals etc.
So the location... EverStrength Fitness. Its a stones throw from Grand Canal Dock just over the bridge in Ringsend Village at the back of the Aviva Stadium.
Entirely free. This forum has been great to me over he years and even though I don't post much anymore it remains good to me so I'm happy to give a little back.
I'm thinking a Sunday because parking is free in the area and it won't interfere with the gyms weekly schedule.
Option A - Nov 14th
Option B - Nov 21st
Comment below with what date you would prefer.
Assume we'll kick off around 11 - and assume it will run til mid-late afternoon but we can iron out the details once we know who's coming.
As always its first come first serve - don't take a space if you can't attend as you're taking what will be a very enjoyable informative day away from the next person on the list.
Numbers are going to be strictly capped at 8-10 people. If the demand is WAY above that we might look at running both dates... but assume for the time being its one or the other.

If you come and lift with us, that will be the end of it - I will not look for you, I will not pursue you... but if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you... and I will kill you
So... to secure your place just comment below and let me know what date you would prefer. I'll confirm your spot via PM later in the week.
Oh wait .. what about the lads!
Yeah we can run a Lads Learn to Lift Workshop too if there is sufficient demand, just post below and if there's enough people we'll organise a separate date for that.
What do you need to bring?
Comfortable training gear, pen and paper if you like, and open mind
This is for people relatively new to lifting in general - not experienced/competitive lifters and especially not for 'fitness professionals'.
So now then ...
