Coach Tyler Peacock, a former strength coach at Florida State University who trained NCAA and Olympic-level star athletes, will demonstrate the art and discipline of weightlifting with local middle and high school weightlifters. The 2015 World Team member, 16-year-old rising star, Sha’la McMillan, will show her skills during the event.
The Bradenton Farmers Market presents a demonstration by the Full Circle Performance Weightlifting Club with Coach Tyler Peacock and local middle and high school students, Saturday, November 14, 9 a.m.-noon.
Tyler Peacock was a strength coach at Florida State University from 2006 to 2013, where he trained NCAA and Olympic-level star athletes. Recently, he was invited to teach strength training at the National Scholastic Athletics Foundation’s Project Triple Jump Clinic at IMG Academy. Peacock began volunteering as a weightlifting coach at Palmetto High School, where he developed relationships with some very talented young people who are on board with pursuing excellence through the sport of weightlifting. His team includes youth national champion, youth American record holder, and 2015 World Team member, Sha’la McMillan, who has already been invited to live and train at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs in pursuit of the 2020 Olympic Games. The Full Circle Performance Weightlifting Club also includes a number of other lifters who are ranked well nationally in their respective weight class and age group.
"The Full Circle Performance Weightlifting Club is in its beginning stages and the Bradenton Farmers’ Market is proud to showcase these fine young athletes," says Peg Haynes, the market's manager.
