Iron Sisters Strength Camp 7

Friday, July 29th to Sunday, July 31st, 2022

Why Should YOU attend Iron Sisters™ Strength Camp?

Iron Sisters Strength Camp 7 promises to build on the foundation that we first established in our inagural event back in 2014.

There are a growing number of women looking to gain strength - whether it's the world of powerlifting, weightlifting, crossfit, strongwoman or to          make their strength training experience better.

Iron Sisters™ exists so that you have the opportunity to become the best lifter that you can possibly be. How do we do this?

  • We educate – we focus on the three power lifts: Squat, Bench Press and Deadlift and we provide the technical information and the practical, hands-on opportunity to practice these lifts with the best lifters and coaches in the World.
  • We motivate – we’ve realized that when women are surrounded by a like-minded community as dedicated to the Iron as they are, incredible things happen!
  • We create the utmost environment so that you can do all this and have fun, too! 

           "I still can't believe that a world champion lifter coached me yesterday;          what an incredible experience." Laura

"I met a group of people who were so supportive and so encouraging and so full of knowledge that it gave me the push I needed to pursue lifting more seriously." Erin

Do you want the opportunity to experience Sisterhood in your life? 

Then you’ve just gotta attend the Iron Sisters™ Strength Camp 7.

Our 2022 Iron Sisters Strength Camp will be our best EVER!

It takes place July 29th, 30th and 31st in Hamilton, Ontario!

There's been a shift in the powerlifting universe. We're seeing scores of women getting their hands onto barbells and hitting the platform. As a result, not only are women lifting more than ever, but more women are lifting!!!

Iron Sisters Strength Camp has had to adapt to the growing number of women thirsting for knowledge and opportunity to learn more about this thing we call powerlifting. Strength Camp 7 has THREE different ways YOU can be involved. From full participants – including hands-on training and Seminars – to SideLine participants - perfect for coaches to plug in and keep their knowledge growing - and to our Live Stream opportunity, we now have you covered for increasing your powerlifting knowledge!

Strength Camp is for anyone seaking knowledge and insigth into how they can get better - from beginners through to World Champions and record holders, we've had them all at Strength Camp.

Due to the hands-on TRAINING EMPHASIS, WE ONLY HAVE ROOM FOR  26 Iron Sisters to participate!  

Our SideLine Stream is for those of you who want to experience all of Strength Camp, except for the hands-on training portions. You will still have the opportunity to observe these coaching sessions. If you are a coach, an injured athlete or a guy, then this stream is for you. 


We recognized that Squatting, Bench Pressing and Deadlifting are important - which is why we dedicate so much of our Strength Camp time to the big three. However, why stop the learning there? From our signature Coaches Panels to hands on consultations and insights from some of our most trusted health and performance professionals you will experience and learn more in one weekend than you possibly have learned all year! 

And, once again Iron Sisters Strength Camp will be LIVESTREAMED.

Our Out of Town Participants LiveStream lets you join us for Strength Camp from wherever you are in the World! 

Your opportunity to stream the Strength Camp is our way of reaching the growing community of lifters around the world! We know you’d rather be here with us, but this is the next best thing!!!

One incredible day of Powerlifting Learning, and three different ways to participate. 

Now all you need to do is register!


Iron Sisters™ Strength Camp Seven 

Celebrity Coaches and Presenters


We are excited that IPF and Multiple-time CPU Champion and Multiple World Record Holder Maria Htee will be joining us. Maria first joined Iron Sisters Strength Camp back in 2017 and she has gone on to set multiple World Records and win the IPF Worlds in 2019 as well as adding another Commonwealth Title to her name.



3-time IPF Open Champion, Multiple CPU Champion, IPF World Record Holder in the Bench Press (in the 72 and 84 kg classes) and Team Canada Member, Coach Rhaea Stinn joins Iron Sisters Strength Camp for the fifth time. Rhaeajust set an unnofficial World Record Bench Press in the Equipped 84 kg Open three-Lift at the 2022 CPU Nationals, pressing a mind-boggling 228.5 kg. Rhaea is currently preparing for the 2022 World Games in Birmingham, Alabama which is set to take place just two weeks before Strength Camp 7.


And lastly, Multiple Canadian Champion and 2021's 84 kg+ IPF World Champion Brittany Schlater joins our Coaching Team. Brittany has been powerlifting for only a short while, and is the epitome of applying learning to her lifting goals. She attended Iron Sisters Strength Camp back in 2017 as a participant, and went on to achieve the highest level of success in our sport just a few short years later. We are so glad Brittany is here to share with our community after achieving such success.




It’s almost too good to be true! Three of Canada's best female powerlifters in the world, all World Champions, in one place, at one time, and YOU can learn from each of them as they collaborate in the classroom to bring you all things.    Squat, Bench Press and Deadlift! 

But, that’s not all!

It’s one thing to listen to these incredible women TALK about training - that alone would be worth it for me - but it’s another thing to be able to put into practice some of the things that they will share with you that weekend. This is why we designed Iron Sisters Strength Camp with 120+ minutes of dedicated and coached training time for EACH of the fundamental lifts and their respective accessory movements.

We guarentee that you will walk away from Iron Sisters Strength                       Camp 7 with the knowledge and the tools to                           Succeed in YOUR Squat, Believe in YOUR Bench Press  and Dominate YOUR Deadlift.


We want you to engage this powerful community of Iron Sisters as much as possible, so we are including lunch on Saturday, snacks and the ever important coffee to keep you going all weekend long. 'Cause the only thing better than training with your friends, is eating with your friends! 

So, what are you waiting for?

As one of our attendees stated, when asked what she might say to someone considering Iron Sisters Strength Camp, “Do it. Just, do it!"
