LIFT classes are programmed with a purpose! We designed these classes to rotate through a bodybuilding style full body workout to sculpt a woman's physique, build muscular strength, and improve endurance.
Classes are carefully designed by our Personal Trainers to sculpt and strengthen a womans body. This allows for members to progress effectively and master the skills needed in weight training.
Members who are enrolled in a Nutrition program like the 12 Week Sculpt & Shred or 90 Day Transformation will be tracking their progress through LIFT class in their App.
LIFT coaches are Personal Trainers with Professionalism, Passion, and Personality. They will guide you through the workouts with a proper warmup, big lift, workout, and cool down. Coaches will give modifications and options for many of the exercises and ensure that all members are using (near) perfect form before adding weight.

Every LIFT class is programmed around Progressive Overload
What is the Theory of Progressive Overload?
Once you perfect your form, adding weight little by little over time will signal to your body that you need MORE muscle fibers. The best way to know you are progressing is to track! Make a note after class or log in AppTrainer.
This creates a metabolic response too! But remember, to grow you must eat! Focusing on unprocessed carbs and lean proteins around “BIG LIFT” days will help give energy to your lift, as well as, provide energy (aka calories) for the muscles to grow and recover.
