Barbell Basics

A WORKSHOP DESIGNED TO
HELP WOMEN OVERCOME THEIR BARBELL HESITATION. 

LEARN TO LIFT WITH

THE KIND OF CONFIDENCE

THAT SHOWS UP BEYOND THE GYM.

YOU REALLY WANT TO GIVE BARBELL training A TRY BUT...

IT SEEMS INTIMIDATING.

YOU AREN'T SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND

YOU DON'T WANT TO RISK AN INJURY,

THE REAPPEARANCE OF PELVIC FLOOR PAIN AND SYMPTOMS,

OR JUST GENERALLY DO ANYTHING THAT MIGHT END UP IN EMBARRASSMENT. 

BUT YOU ALSO WANT TO FEEL BADASS IN THE GYM (AND TO BOTTLE THAT FEELING SO THAT YOU CAN FEEL CAPABLE IN ANY SITUATION.)

YOU'RE READY TO TRY SOMETHING NEW AND GIVE YOURSELF A BIT OF A CHALLENGE.

YOU JUST NEED SOMEONE TO HELP YOU TAKE THAT FIRST STEP.

WITH THE RIGHT SUPPORT,
ANYONE CAN LEARN TO LIFT.

LET ME BE THAT SUPPORT FOR YOU.

MY TIME WITH ANNA WAS AN INVESTMENT IN MYSELF AND IT WAS SO WORTH IT!
SHE IS KIND, ENCOURAGING, AND A GREAT LISTENER. 
 
...I LEFT MY SESSIONS FEELING CAPABLE AND LIKE I HAD TESTED MY STRENGTH JUST ENOUGH. I GAINED A LOT OF CONFIDENCE AND APPRECIATION FOR MY BODY. SESSIONS WITH HER FEEL LIKE WORKING OUT WITH A FRIEND! I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND ANNA AND BOLTE FITNESS.  - MOLLY

Hi,
I'm Anna

I've been in the fitness industry for over 10 years but it wasn't until I had my first baby that I saw it: there were massive gaps in the women's health, fitness, and athleticism space. 

Women are commonly experiencing symptoms such as prolapse, diastasis recti, and navigating major life events like pregnancy and postpartum with little to no support. 

Typical fitness programs, gyms, and coaches frequently do not consider the needs, struggles, or real lives of busy moms and parents. 

The "look" that  fitness and some women's health spaces have tends to be oppressive and excludes BIPOC, LGBTQ+ , people living in larger bodies, and other folks in marginalized bodies.

This is exactly what motivated me to build a welcoming, educational,

anti-oppressive space - both in-person and virtually - to better support the women and folks that I get the opportunity to work with.

I can help you to feel confident in the gym and in life, and to gain power, capability, knowledge, and the support system you need to do all the things you love without hesitation.

LET'S GET YOU FEELING


STRONG , BADASS, RESILIENT,
AND JUST GENERALLY UNSTOPPABLE

"I’VE GAINED STRENGTH NOT ONLY PHYSICALLY BUT MENTALLY ALSO. OVERCOMING WHAT’S GOING ON IN MY OWN HEAD IS SOMETIMES MY BIGGEST BARRIER.

 

I APPRECIATE HOW ANNA UNDERSTANDS LIFE IS FULL OF UPS AND DOWNS AND OUR EXPERIENCE WITH EXERCISE MIGHT LOOK DIFFERENT AT DIFFERENT PERIODS IN OUR LIFE. SHE’S BEEN WITH ME THROUGH HIGHLY MOTIVATED PERIODS AND TIMES WHEN I WAS SO DEPRESSED I DIDN’T KNOW IF I EVEN WANTED TO WORK OUT AGAIN.

 

AND IN BOTH INSTANCES, AND ALL THE ONES IN BETWEEN SHE HAS GIVEN ME FLEXIBILITY, GRACE, AND DIGNITY. "  - A.

What happens next? (And other fAQS)

Once you’ve clicked through to the registration and submitted payment, you'll receive a welcome email. This will give you all the information you need to know for the class and walk you through next steps.

 

The email will also contain a health questionnaire to be filled out prior to attending the workshop.

 

At the workshop, you will sign a release and jump right in! I'll take you through the group session, where I will also include many opportunities to move and try things out.

I'm brand new to exercise, is this meant for me?

Absolutely! This workshop is for beginners and will teach the basics and fundamentals of barbell training. 

I already know how to use a barbell but I want to improve my form. Will I still get something out of the workshop?

Definitely. I will spend time honing in on technique for the squat and the deadlift. You will receive coaching on how to improve your form and will leave with increased confidence and a stronger lifting foundation.

Can I do this if I have pain, core, or pelvic floor symptoms?

I recommend seeing a Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist to get a good grasp on your specific symptoms and how to best manage (please email anna@boltefitness.com if you are having any trouble finding one near you). I will provide appropriate modifications for various core and pelvic floor symptoms to help you learn how you can best manage symptoms with specific movements and continue with the exercise you enjoy!

THERE IS NOTHING LIKE
THE STRENGTH YOU'LL FEEL

(EMOTIONALLY, MENTALLY, AND PHYSICALLY)

FROM conquering the BARBELL.
