Lakeside Weightlifting 1st Birthday

lizzie1 Articles, Uncategorised 0 Comments

We simply want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has been involved in making the first year of coaching and lifting at Lakeside Weightlifting such a pleasure…..our 50 strong community members – without you we would not have developed such a lovely lifting family, who every day cease to amaze me with their tenacity and humour!

Thank you to our volunteer coaches who have spent countless hours coaching and helping members and working on their own development alongside yours.

Also a massive thank you to my partner, family, and mentor @ftw_4thewin for keeping me sane! A special mention for
@Sports&HealthEastleigh for signposting and supporting grassroots initiatives for our beginner adult and junior lifters, and we are looking forward to taking this forward in the new year with their #Thisgirlcan campaign featuring one of our members.

We have seen plenty of great changes in our lifters, coming on from compete beginners to confident lifters, some also taking their first steps onto the platform in various regional level Olympic weightlifting, or powerlifting competitions and bringing home some medals too!

We also have supported a number of athletes and sports people who are reporting great gains in their sport performance as a result of starting weightlifting.

With our birthday party and subsequent hangover completed for 2017 we are excited to be planning for 2018.

The club is expanding in size this week in preparation for the New Year, giving the opportunity to welcome in a fresh squad of lifters into a bigger but still ‘cozy’ space.

If you would like to come and be part of our lifting family please do sign up for a complimentary taster session BOOK NOW

Heres to a very Merry Christmas and a gainfilled New Year from all of the team here at Lakeside.
