Sport of Weightlifting
Weightlifting is the barbell sport where two lifts are contested: the snatch and the clean & jerk. This is the only barbell sport that is in the Olympics and is one of the original Olympic sports in the modern Olympic era. To be successful in the sport of weightlifting an athlete must be strong, fast, and very flexible. The movements are complex, but with our coaching staff we will get you up to speed in no time!
