Learn to Lift: The Foundations of Safe Weight Training Workshop starting August 7th

Jake Liila is back!

Every Tuesday from 11am – 12pm Jake will teach proper weightlifting form including proper stances, hip hinging, core and muscle engagement and proper hand placement. You will learn all the basic foundational weight lifting exercises including squats, deadlifts, bent over rows and more. And along the way you will also learn supplemental exercises to help maintain muscle balance and protect from and reduce injury risks.

This workshop is open to ALL ages and abilities and has been designed for people that have never touched a weight and need to ease in as well as for those that just need to make their weightlifting workouts better. Jake is particularly passionate about helping kids find a healthy path so if you have some kids home from school this summer that want to learn more about getting fit then this might be for them. And as a bonus if Mom or Dad are the official taxi service they are welcome to participate in our 11am Zumba class on Tuesday for FREE!

Cost for this 4 week session is $150. But if you register BEFORE August 1st cost is $125!

Weight training is key component to any health regime. By stressing your bones, strength training can increase bone density and reduce the risk of osteoporosis. And strength training can help you manage or lose weight, as well as  increase your metabolism to help you burn more calories.

Due to Jake wanting to make sure he is able to focus and attend to everyone properly there are limited spots available for this workshop. Please also note this workshop is pre-paid and non-refundable.

And now a little more about Jake!

“Hey! I’m Jake Liila!

I graduated from UMD with a degree in exercise science. Afterwards I got my personal training certification through the American College of Sports Medicine.

Not long after I graduated I started working in human services and still currently am.

I pursued a position that allowed me to work at a couple gyms open to the public inside schools.

While observing a lot of the student athletes and general public lifters, I realized the importance of learning safe fundamentals of weight lifting and how important they are to learn before amping up the numbers, (I should say not only in observation, but previous personal poor practice as well).

I’ve learned a great deal from my successes but more so from my failures and from them I hope to share what I know to those looking to build on or create a new skill set.

Weight lifting isn’t just for meatheads or bros and you don’t have to be able deadlift a car to reap the benefits of weight training. It can build self-confidence, make daily tasks easier, and increase overall quality of life. Like Ronnie Coleman says, “Ain’t nothin’ but a peanut.”
