After a super busy few weeks, it's started to sink in that we were on Look North last week! 😎 Pretty crazy response with nearly 150k views on Facebook now! 😱 Hopefully we've promoted and represented Weightlifting and strength and conditioning well to a general audience. 🏋🏻♀️💪🏼 I'm super proud of our club, and to be part of the weightlifting and strength and conditioning community. Well done to all our kids, parents and members for being awesome people. ❤️ British Weight Lifting UK Strength & Conditioning Association - UKSCA The Scarborough News
What a great day! We had a kids squad training session with BBC Look North (Yorkshire) coming to film. 🎬 Well done to all the kids for being awesome, and thanks to all the parents for bringing them down on a Sunday. We have such a brilliant team, I'm very proud of everyone. 😊🏋🏻♀️ These two already look like professional athletes, but if not...maybe Hollywood? 🎥 @British Weight Lifting @Barons Fitness Repost @johnlinsley with @get_repost ・・・ My daughter being interviewed for our local news station #looknorth at her weightlifting 🏋️♂️ club @scarboroughweightlifting #girlsthatlift #fitness
To get good at any movement or sport: practice, practice and practice. BUT make sure it is all QUALITY practice...
So, not quite the weekend we hoped for. Cathy-Ann and Becky both hitting 2/6 lifts, and both lifters leaving disappointed and frustrated. Progress is however rarely linear. And I am incredibly proud of both lifters. Both have absolutely smashed their goals that that they set this time last year. It is a mark of how far they have come as women and athletes that top 10 finishes at national championships can be considered a disappointing result. 📈 Both were disappointed not because of where they finished, but because they didn't perform at their best. What they did show however was strength and resilience to make sure they came away from the competition with a total - despite the pressure, and banked more platform experience at a high level with the top lifters in the country. 🏋🏻♀️🏋🏻♀️🔝 We will reflect on how to perform better in future competitions, but on also how far we have come and grown since this time last year. It’s around time to start goal setting and planning for the next year of competition, and I have no doubt that this year will be as adrenaline fuelled, exciting and emotional as the last one.😬🙈 Thanks to @britishwl and Ed Halstead for putting on a truly fantastic competition. The venue, lighting, music and atmosphere was epic! The competitions keep getting bigger and better. 🏋🏻♀️🇬🇧 Lastly well done to @_amylifts for winning the 53's 🏆 and coming very close to another British record!
It's nearly time... @cathyann.myers U53's start time: 11.40am. 🏋🏻♀️🏋🏻♀️🏋🏻♀️ @becky.martin.1293 U63's start time: 18.40pm. Let's smash this! 💪🏼
🚨Reminder There are NO kids or adults classes today (Friday 19th January) because we are en route to Milton Keynes for English Championships this weekend! 🏋🏻♀️🏋🏻♀️ See everybody next week, when normal class times resume 👋

Really proud of our older Scarborough Weightlifting Club kids at their first Yorkshire Talent Squad day! 🏋🏻♀️ Great session delivered by Dave Hembrough: •Outlining the program and the pathway to the Olympics and Commonwealth Games •Doing some simple strength and power tests •Finding out what the kids are working on and how their lifting is going The kids represented themselves and the club well, showing a good mindset in terms of wanting to learn and improve. Well done guys! 🤓 #scarboroughweightliftingclub #hallambarbell #britishweightlifting #olympics #scarborough
Weightlifting is a great sport for kids of all ages to do. It will increase their levels of strength, confidence, generic coordination and help them to start to develop a growth mindset, under the supervision of a good coach. It will also help to decrease their risk of injury in other sports in which they experience significantly greater force than in weightlifting (e.g. Gymnastics, rugby, basketball etc.).
Well done to both Becky and Hiba who competed this weekend at the Warley Invitational (both smashing their targets)! 💪🏼🏋🏻♀️ This was @becky.martin.1293 last opportunity to qualify for the English Championships which take place in January. She hit her 140 total with a 60kg snatch and an 80kg C&J (and we think broke several British Masters records in the process). 💥 Hiba was aiming to qualify for British University's and was really keen to hit this target before the year was up. She did this hitting a solid 100 total (43 Snatch and 57 C&J). 💥 I'm very proud of both lifters. Not for hitting the numbers they lifted (they will both lift a lot more in the future), but for doing what it took to succeed at hitting their targets in the lead up, and during the competition. Both put the onus on themselves to make the improvements we said needed to happen for them to achieve what they wanted. Both got stuck into the process and got on with it, despite being very busy outside of lifting (Hiba having exams and having to move locations being a 4th year medical student; and Becky having her own business to run, two children to look after and help with coaching in the kids club). Well done guys, you are a credit to yourselves and Scarborough Weightlifting Club. 😊🏋🏻♀️ #scarboroughweightliftingclub #englishchampionships #britishuniversitychampionships #scarborough #baronsfitnessscarborough
