St Mary’s University, Twickenham, is encouraging women into strength and weight training with its six-week ‘Learn to Lift’ programme, beginning on Wednesday 21st January. Following a successful launch last year, the female-only programme is back by popular demand from students, staff and members of the public who are keen to learn how to safely lift weights and get fit in a friendly and supportive environment. The hour-long sessions will be held in St Mary’s brand new Strength and Conditioning facility (known as the Performance Education Centre) and will offer three levels of difficulty to cater for all experience and fitness abilities, from beginners to budding Olympians. What’s more, thanks to funding from Sport England’s Sportivate project, the University is able to offer a number of places half the usual price of £50 to those under the age of 25. St Mary’s Sport Science Lecturer Hayley Legg, who will be leading the one-hour sessions said, “We were delighted with the popularity of the first ever Learn to Lift programme and with the addition of the Sportivate funding, we are sure that the new course will attract event more women who are keen to try out weightlifting.” The six-week programme will begin on Wednesday 21st January, with two sessions available each week (5.30pm and 6.30pm). The programme costs £50, or £25 for under 25s. For more information and to book please email clinic@stmarys.ac.uk or call 020 8240 4070.
