Over the weekend, 31 of our ladies came down to HQ to lift together, to
test where they are currently and have a whole heap of fun in the
Lifting Parties are one of the major highlights of our year. They allow us to come together, connect and celebrate what our bodies can achieve and what we can achieve as a community.
We saw ladies with varied experience with strength training all come together. We had ladies who have been with us for years, alongside ladies who are totally new to lifting. Everyone approached their day as appropriate to them. Some ladies were putting in a fight with the barbell whilst others were getting their first experience of hitting all three lifts in one day. Regardless of the approach from each lady, the underlying sense of “I got you girl” was rippling through HQ.
Ladies who weren’t lifting came along to help with organisation, spotting, loading and bringing the hype! At each rack, ladies were surrounding the lifter, loading up the barbell and giving her words of encouragement. With each lift, you could hear cheering and applause. With each grind, you could hear screams of encouragement to keep going.
And when a lady hit a successful lift the noise and energy was electric!
No matter if our ladies hit PB’s or not, we celebrated and shared an unspoken bond with each lift.
Strength is built in showing up.
Strength is built in putting your best foot forward no matter how you feel.
Strength is built in being courageous even though you might be shit scared.
Because every time you choose to step forward, to lean into the situations which will challenge you, you gain strength. You build confidence and you build a deep rooted resilience that you take into other areas of your life.
It’s time for our ladies to reset some goals and take some time to acknowledge just how far they have come.
Well done ladies!
We thank you for an incredible day and for showing the babe next to you that we are stronger together.
