Weightlifting

Our Olympic Weightlifting program focuses on the 3 contested Olympic lifts: the snatch, the clean and the jerk.

We place a heavy emphasis on Olympic Weightlifting due to the sport’s unique ability to develop an athlete’s explosive power, control of external objects, and mastery of critical motor recruitment patterns. Even mainstream fitness magazines are starting to acknowledge that swiss ball crunches are on the way out and full-body weightlifting is the preferred way to get in shape.

We start at the very beginning with the fundamentals and move from there. More advanced athletes will move up in weight faster, while novice lifters will stay with light weight and work on their form.
