Holiday Leftovers Deadlift Competition & Website Launch Party

Sunday January 17, 2021 10:00am-1:00pm CST | On Zoom!

We are celebrating the launch of our website!

Join us for heavy deadlifts and holiday leftovers and contribute to powerlifting for empowerment! Each participant pays a 10$ cover charge. The cover charge is a suggested donation! Please still come if you cannot afford to pay. Drop in via Zoom link on our Facebook page to show us your deadlift and ask questions about our program. Let us cheer for you while you lift. Anyone who hits a PR will receive a mention in a press release from our website. Send us your gym selfies too!

Pesas y Poder promotes gender equity, empowerment and healing from trauma through the practice of strength sport in El Salvador.

If you’re not a lifter and just want to join the fun, you are invited too. Teach us some yoga or another skill, talk about your life, ask questions, share a recipe, and make friends.

We celebrate all bodies! We welcome people of any gender and ability level!

This is our time for feminist fun and organizing. We will also brainstorm future events and ways to build solidarity. This will be an informal social gathering among friends with a shared passion for gender empowerment and powerlifting.

Be sure to bring your own favorite holiday leftovers for fuel.

Additional donations beyond cover charge are welcome and tax deductible.
