I Am Not Afraid To Lift Workshop is Coming to FUELhouse!

Women's Strength Workshop to help women learn to lift and to feel empowered through strength training.

This workshop is appropriate for women who lift at ALL levels, from beginners to advanced lifters. From those women who have never lifted weights before who want to learn the basics of a push-up or how to achieve their first unassisted pull-up, and for those advanced lifters who want to take their training to the next level by improving program design or by learning new techniques to work towards a specific strength goal such as a weighted pull-up, a new 1 rep max for barbell deadlift, or a max bodyweight press. This workshop will help you to sharpen skills and learn programming in order to reach your goal.

ABOUT ARTEMIS and her MISSION

In 2014, I created my women’s strength workshop I Am Not Afraid To Lift®. I created this workshop based upon how strength training strengthened and changed both my body and my mindset and based upon my experience training for the strength challenge, the Iron Maiden Challenge (video below).

As a ballet dancer from the age of 3 to 27, turned kung fu black belt at age 32, “Iron Maiden” at age 38, and powerlifter at age 39, through all of my athletic endeavors, I was never afraid to lift. My first true inspiration to lift weights and to build serious muscle was from Linda Hamilton’s character, Sarah Connor in Terminator 2. After I watched this movie in 1990 when I was a sophomore in high school I made it my mission to build arms as jacked as Linda Hamilton’s.

However, as I trained for the Iron Maiden Challenge from 2011 to 2014, I learned that this was not the case for many women.

I learned that many women are afraid to lift because they don’t know how to lift, or because they are afraid that they might hurt themselves, or a combination of the two, or because they are afraid of how strength training will change their bodies in that they may end up looking less feminine and perhaps even lose their lady parts  …

I can assure you ladies, strength training will not make you look less feminine and your lady parts will remain intact.

It is my experience that once women learn how to lift, and once they learn how strong and capable they are, that those fears fly right out the window and instead they love the feeling of confidence and empowerment they get from being hella strong in the weight room, and how it carries over to all areas of their lives AND they love every muscle on their body as these muscles take shape through their hard work through strength training.

After teaching my women’s strength workshop I Am Not Afraid To Lift® all over the United States and even around the world in Australia, I took a one year hiatus from teaching the workshop in 2017 in order to re-vamp the curriculum. The brand new 2018 curriculum now also includes barbell lifts in addition to kettlebell lifts.

NOTE: There are practice segments and practical hands-on workouts throughout the workshop.

Personal Trainers who attend will receive .8 NASM CEUs for attending the workshop.

This workshop is appropriate for women who lift of ALL levels, from beginners to advanced lifters.  From women who have never lifted weights before who want to learn the basics of a push-up or how to achieve their first unassisted pull-up, and for those advanced lifters who want to take their training to the next level by improving program design or by learning new techniques to work towards a specific strength goal such as a weighted pull-up, a new 1 rep max for barbell deadlift, or a max bodyweight press. This workshop will help you to sharpen skills and learn programming in order to reach your goal.

After registering for the workshop, I will send each registrant a questionnaire in order to gauge what level they are at e.g. beginner lifter vs. advanced lifter. I will also send each registrant a detailed agenda.
