Welcome to December and the run up to Christmas and more excitingly the run up to 2017! TLA has a couple of exciting emails coming your way over the next few weeks announcing new classes, dates for the Christmas period and a few new plans for TLA in the new year. It has been a great 2016 and we are looking forwards to continuing on all of our current classes, as well as adding on more which will give you more choice and less of an excuse!

Without further ado, let's kick off with this...

NEW Beginners Lifting Course 2017

With the continuing success of the Saturday lifting course, we are pleased to announce that we will be running a four week beginners lifting course in January 2017.

The course will be suitable for those who have not really done any form of weight lifting before, but would be keen to learn and then look to join the regular Strength group.

We will cover the Deadlift, Back Squat, Bench Press and Overhead Press, with a look into other lifts such as the Bent-Over Row, Romanian Deadlift and Bulgarian Split Squat.

Lifting with Barbells is very satisfying and has a huge number of benefits, but it is important to learn the fundamentals of each move so you can do it safely and correctly. This will allow you to progress, gain maximum benefits and stay injury free.

The course will start on Saturday January 7th at 10.30am and continue for 4 weeks. It will be held at the TLA Studio. The beginners lifting course will be held by Heather Grimes level 2 Strength & Conditioning Coach & Personal Trainer.

The course will be limited to 8 people and will cost £45 for the whole four weeks. The first four people to sign up will receive a FREE Studio hand-towel (RRP-£15).
