Family Lifting Program


This class is taught by:

Dan Lopes

I was basically born in the gym. When my parents introduced me into lifting it was a stick and lessons on technique. As I aged weight was slowly introduced but never at the sacrifice of technique, you cannot build upwards without a solid base. This is something that has stuck with me all those years, and those same principles that have brought me both personal success in strength sports and success in teaching other athletes, especially the youth athletes that we train.
My personal success includes: breaking and currently holding the Nevada High School squat and total record for the Heavy Weight class, winning numerous amateur Strongman contests, top 5 finishes in Scottish Highland Games contests in which I still compete.
The goal is to bring families together and help forge a healthy, fun, and bonding experience. There is no lifting experience required for this class, whether you have never touched a weight in your life or you consider yourself an experienced gym goer we look forward to working with you and your family.
This class will focus on the fundamentals of the core "power movements" Squat, Bench, Deadlift, and Overhead press, along with learning how and why to use every piece of equipment in the gym and how to build a sustainable and safe workout program.
