On repeat. It's day 2 @ #LiftManchester, and we're here once again with the latest updates.
IT'S TIME TO LIFT THE CITY
THE GYMSHARK AMSTERDAM STORE IS FINALLY HERE
AMSTERDAM, THIS MIGHT ONLY BE A ONE DAY EVENT, BUT BELIEVE YOU ME, IT'S GOING TO BE ONE FOR THE MEMORY BOOK
DON'T BELIEVE US? JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE VENUE...
CAN'T MAKE IT TO THE STORE? NO PROBLEM.
As always, Gymshark Central is LIVE, here at Gashouder, Westergasfabriek - creating the FOMO you didn't even know existed.
We'll be giving you an As It Happens look inside - you know the drill - athletes, fans, product drops, seminar footage... Every. Single. Moment.
DESPITE THE WEATHER BEING A LITTLE GREY AND MISERABLE - AMSTERDAM, YOU'RE OUT HERE IN THE MASSES AND IT GENUINELY BLOWS US AWAY.
Umbrellas, boots, scarves and puffer jackets...it's all going on.
With less than half an hour until the store officially opens, it's safe to say that you're not the only ones here.
Athletes gotta get that content...
MAKE SURE TO HEAD ON OVER TO OUR IG STORIES FOR A LITTLE INTRODUCTION TO EACH AND EVERY ATHLETE, HERE AT #LIFTAMSTERDAM
AND WE'RE OFFICIALLY OPEN! AMSTERDAM...ARE YOU READY?
Fancy being featured on Gymshark Central or Gymshark IG? We'll be around all day, so be prepared - wave big and shout loud - we want to capture every single moment.
SPOT THAT NEW FLEX?
For those of you who haven't already ordered your NEW High Waisted Flex, you're in for a little treat.
We may have brought a few new additions along...
ALONE OR IN FULL FORCE
No matter who you've come down with today, we have staff on hand to capture the moment.
Just find someone British, wearing a #LiftAmsterdam t-shirt and hand your phone on over. We'll find the natty lighting, so all you have to do is #FLEX.
SEMINAR 1: FUNCTIONAL TRAINING FOR BEGINNERS

SEMINAR 2: HOW TO BUILD A WORKOUT PLAN
Sometimes, there's more to it than just the practical. Here to talk you through the fundamentals:
SOPHIE VAN OOSTENBRUGGE + BECCA SILLS
From nutrition, to finding out which exercises work best for you, the girls are also offering up their fitness knowledge by answering your thought-out questions.
Located right bang in the centre of an otherwise very circular room, you'll find the box.
Filled with weights, gym equipment and every now and then, a couple of Athletes - this is where you'll learn about form, how to push yourself further than you thought possible, and if you're lucky, participation in one of the toughest Gymshark challenges going.
Future seminars will include the following:
- ANTONIE LOKHORST: 14:00-14:30 (Functional Training)
- RICHARD DUCHON + MATT MORSIA: 15:00-15:30 (Bodybuilding Basics)
- CHRISTINA FJAERE: 16:00-16:30 (Bootybuilding)
We'll catch you at the next one!
So, you've found the athletes on the stage, but don't forget about the guys on the floor!
Scout the room for Christina Fjaere, Julius Ise, Sophie Van Oostenbrugge and Becca Sills - they're ready and waiting for you and your questions!
