MAKING WIMBLEDON STRONGER ONE DEADLIFT, SQUAT AND KETTLEBELL SWING AT A TIME. DISCOVER THE WORKOUT WHERE PHYSICAL STRENGTH MEETS MENTAL STRENGTH.
Weightlifting is a little like meditation. At least, it should be. Mindlessly lifting big weights will get you nowhere, except one step closer to injury and weeks out of training. Brit’s Wimbledon Weightlifting Circuits class at the SW20 Training Zone provides a safe and informative space to learn and progress the most essential lifts and movements. Grounded in functional movement, every exercise will make you stronger for everyday life – and Brit will make sure you know exactly why you’re doing it. Small groups, smart movements, big results.
WHEN and WHERE
Brit’s Weightlifting Circuits are held for 50 minutes at 8PM Thursday evenings at SW20 Training Zone located at 207 Worple Road. As there are a maximum of 8 people per class, advance booking is required and cancellations must be made at least 24 hours in advance. Please book online here or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

WHAT and WHY
What? Mobility-based warm-up
Why? Because safely activating and mobilising the body means improved range and more effective movement during weightlifting exercises
What? Barbell, dumbbell, kettlebell, gymastic ring and TRX exercises
Why? Varying the apparatus you use to strengthen your body means your muscles are always guessing, which means better results and an exciting workout every time
What? Compound movements
Why? Most exercises will work multiple muscle groups at once. This isn’t 60 minutes of bicep curls and tricep dips. Training the body to work as one ensures your newfound strength is truly functional.
What? Partner-led sessions
Why? Working together with someone helps to hold you accountable and ensures your form is nothing short of exceptional
What? Circuit-based formats
Why? Transitioning smoothly between exercises with minimum rest keeps your heart rate elevated and therefore increases your metabolism both during and after your workout. This class will once and for all convince you that strength training deserves equal weighting (pun intended) with the cardio in your training regime.
What to bring
- Water bottle
- Comfortable workout clothes
- Lightweight trainers (you want to be able to move your feet and feel the floor)
