Description

This is 2-part fitness event which will consist of a workshop & a full work-out. We will teach, guide, and instruct you on exercises (that use weights, of course!) to do at your own gym and at home.

Participants will:

-receive a full 45-minute workout incorporating weight/strength training exercises

-learn how to use weights & machines that target the core muscles (abs, lower back, etc.)

-meet other Black Girls Lift members and find accountability partners
