"Train with me in the stunning scenery of Tenerife.
World class equipment, world class training and world class weather! ”
- Michaela Breeze MBE
Wow, what and amazing experience! From start to finish, Michaela and Sinead were so welcoming and accommodating. Not only did I manage to overcome my fear of snatching but I am also leaving feeling so relaxed after a weekend retreat in their stunning home. The food was plentiful and really tasty, rooms were comfortable with beautiful views and the hot tub and massage were a great bonus. I have learned how well I can move when I remember that it's 'not a pull', 'to keep my arms loose' and 'to keep the bar low'!"
Kelly O'Beirne - Dorset
"I have been struggling to drop under snatches for the past 8 months. After one session where I learned to 'bail' safely from a snatch, my confidence increased and I was able to drop under the bar resulting in a 15kg Snatch PB! Fantastic explanations to correct positioning when setting up for each lift making things clear and concise. I would definitely recommend the camps to anyone who wants to improve technically, lift safely and avoid injury."
Caroline Hurley - Ammanford
"Fantastic weekend of lifting with like minded people. Michaela's depth of technical knowledge is accessible and well delivered. There's downtime to process what you've learned. Food is plentiful and fresh. I have loved this weekend, met a great bunch of people, learned loads and am feeling so much more confident in my ability."
Jill McIntyre - Newark on Trent
"Loved every minute of this camp. I was made to feel so welcome and it felt like 'home from home' in such a relaxed environment. I loved all the training. Mick's cues were so relatable. I follow Mick on Instagram and have taken on board all her training tips before, but being in her gym and being corrected in person is so much more relatable."
Catherine Martin - Northern Ireland
"I came to this camp as a complete beginner and i'm leaving with the skills and technique to competently to the snatch and clean and jerk. I never had the confidence or ability to even attempt the snatch before but Mick guided me, starting with a training bar and building up to 23kg on the snatch in just 4 sessions. She also gave me movements that i can practice and develop in my own gym which has a much more limited selection of weights, I feel so much more confident and capable. The weekend was really positive and motivating with incredible food and so much laughter too."

"The hospitality, the facilities, the food were all exceptional. I felt welcomed in to your home and cannot wait to come back again. Thank you for providing down-time with massage and hot tub. The coaching was exceptional and has revived my love for weightlifting once again. Working on my weaknesses was ideal. I got so much out of the camp and found everything easy to understand and follow."
Rebecca Cheslett - July 2019
“ so good to be coached by someone with so much experience and knowledge. Lots to take on board and great coaching cues that are simple to understand and effective. Even though the sessions were in small groups, Michaela gave great one-to-one coaching and I can already feel the improvement in technique.”
Amy Staded - August ‘19
“This camp has helped me improve all my lifts so much. Simple explanations and cues from Michaela has changed the way I lift, helping me to relax during the movement. I also got a PB on top of this. Hospitality from both Michaela, Sinead and Acer has been incredible. Food and accommodation was amazing, as well as the hot tub after training. I would highly recommend”
Tash Osgood - August 19
“Facilities and hospitality have been top notch. I couldn’t have been made to feel more welcome. Coaching cues have been outstanding and have helped me continue to improve even coming back from injury. I can not recommend these camps enough”
Ollie Bogg - August ‘19
“The training facilities are incredible and the coaching is second to none! Mick and Sinead are amazing hosts making us feel part of the family from the moment we arrived. I leave with plenty to work on and guidance for the future to aid my lifting. Mick impressed with her ability to coach all abilities in the group and I cannot wait to come back to work with her again!!!”
Scotty Moore - August ‘19
“- extremely welcoming, made to feel part of the family
- food was great. I am selective and a big eater and I felt full and fuelled for lifting after every meal
- The coaching was amazing. I can honestly say I have progressed more in a few days than I have over the year I have been Weightlifting”
Andrew Brown - August ‘19
“ I am a 53-year-old woman and I’ve only been doing weightlifting for about three months. I received incredible support and felt welcomed. I improved over the sessions and trained with other supportive and talented lifters. I feel inspired to continue. Michaela managed all the lifters no matter what ability with constructive and very helpful feedback. Everyone should do it! Not to mention delicious food, spotless and comfortable accommodation and fantastic views, thank you”
Nicola Rogers - August ‘19
“ A wonderful experience, I met some lovely, friendly weightlifting enthusiasts. The food was delicious, the bed comfortable and training thoroughly enjoyable. I received some valuable feedback from Michaela, a true expert which I will now incorporate in my training. Thank you Michaela and Sinead!”
Daphne Christoforou - August ‘19 from Cyprus
“Just what I needed. As a masters weightlifter who’s still relatively new to the sport… brilliant to take time to work on some technique fundamentals and iron out some bad habits. So useful to get a fresh perspective on my lifts from Michaela and draw on her wealth of experience as a lifter and a coach.
Having been a fan of the way Michaela explains aspects of the Olympic lifts on social media for a while being at the camp took this to another level. In particular, great to have the time to ask questions, chat points through and learn as a group. Have to say, I think I’ve found my leg drive on a mountain in South Wales.
It was really energising to be at the camp – great coaching, an awesome group of fellow lifters, and a beautiful location. A little oasis of weightlifting.
Thank you Michaela and Sinead for a wonderful experience.”
