Weightlifting

WHAT IS WEIGHTLIFTING?

Weightlifting is an Olympic sport where athletes perform two lifts – the snatch and the clean & jerk. Both move the barbell from the ground to overhead (in one or two motions) and both require a combination of strength, flexibility, coordination, and explosive power. Whether you want to train in weightlifting, improve your lifts for CrossFit, or just get stronger – training with Strong Weightlifting can get you there.
All our lifting coaches are USAW Level Sport Performance Coach Certified and will be with you every step of the way. We will work with you – from the gym to the competition platform – to address your own strengths and weaknesses to make you a better all-around athlete.”
