Do you still feel intimidated using the free weight section of the gym?

Do you feel like you should be doing more than just walking on the treadmill, but afraid of looking silly trying to figure it out on your own? Or worse, get hurt in the process.

My GYM PREP workshop will teach you to train alongside all "the big boys" and make you feel like you belong there too!

Day 1 Friday 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM - We'll start with a discussion on what exactly "free weights" are, learn gym lingo and exactly what different types of equipment are called. We'll also go over some things you really need to know if you want to look like you belong, like how much different bars weigh and why you should know that.

You'll learn how to use a squat rack, why you should use it even though you are not lifting 300 lbs., and when it’s appropriate or not, to “work in” with someone already using it.

You'll bench press, learn that you can actually “spot” someone safely and discover that this great, full body exercise is appropriate for everyone, not just powerlifters and meatheads.

Want to know what all the hype is over Deadlifting? It’s my absolute favorite exercise that keeps my back strong, my glutes tight and helps my waistline from spilling over my jeans. I will show you that it's not as scary as it sounds or as intimidating as it looks.

Or maybe you don't even know what deadlifting is. That's ok, I'll teach you. Once you learn it and know how to set it up for yourself, you'll wonder why you didn't try it sooner.

We'll end day 1 with workout that will incoporate some of the exercises you've just learned.

Day 2 Saturday 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM - We'll practice everything you learned and go over any questions you may have. And we'll discuss how it translates into an actual training program that you can take to the free weight section of any gym, and get an awesome workout without ever having to step foot on the treadmill again.

By the end of Day 2, you will learn enough gym etiquette and lingo to confidently call out to the meat head who left 500 lbs on the squat rack, “Excuse me, I noticed you're done with your set. Do you need me to help you unrack the bar?”

Learn in a friendly, supportive and private atmosphere.
