ABOUT US

OUR VISION

Our vision is to be a premier training facility dedicated exclusively to olympic-style weightlifting; a place where serious athletes of all levels of experience receive exceptional coaching and training in the pursuit of success at the highest levels of competition.

OUR GOAL

We are committed to coaching talented beginner, intermediate and advanced athletes in the sport of weightlifting and working with athletes from other sports looking to improve their strength and speed through the use of the olympic lifts.

We are dedicated to each of our athletes and seek to provide them with the best resources and support available to enable them to achieve their high-level sport goals.

OUR FOCUS

  • THE SPORT OF WEIGHLIFTING

We are focused on coaching and training talented athletes to develop the technical, physical and psychological skills and characteristics necessary to succeed at the highest levels of competition in the sport of weightlifting.

The sport of weightlifting is an athletic discipline in the modern Olympic program consisting of two lifts, the snatch and the clean & jerk. In the snatch, the athlete lifts the barbell from the floor to overhead in a single movement. In the clean & jerk, the athlete lifts the barbell first from the floor to the shoulders (clean) and then from the shoulders to overhead (jerk). In a competition, each athlete has three attempts at the snatch and three attempts at the clean & jerk, the weights of the best of each of the contested lifts are added together to give the athlete a total. The highest total wins.

  • TRAINING FOR OTHER SPORTS

We are also committed to working with athletes in other sports who are looking to

  • Improve their proficiency in the olympic lifts; and
  • utilize the snatch and clean & jerk (and their derivatives) in support of their strength and conditioning programs.

Developing proficient technique in the weightlifting movements will help increase force production in order to move more efficiently and explosively and improve balance, timing, flexibility and coordination.

OUR TARGETED ATHLETES

We will work with select athletes of all levels and age categories. Experience is not a prerequisite, provided the athlete shows signs of developmental talent and is serious and dedicated to the pursuit of high-level sport goals.
