Weightlifting is an Olympic discipline where athletes attempt maximum effort lifts in both the Snatch and Clean & Jerk. In a competition, the goal is to gain the maximum amount of weight in each discipline (Snatch and Clean & Jerk), which is then combined to give them a total score. This is often referred to as an “Olympic Total”.


Weightlifting is a very skilful sport and requires much coordination and accuracy as well as strength and power. We encourage all lifters to start slow and perfect their technique before progressing with weight. Weightlifting encompasses many aspects such as strength, power, speed, plyometrics, flexibility and coordination, so just because somebody is strong doesn’t mean they will make a good weightlifter. All of the above elements have to be considered when designing our Weightlifting programme.

Our Weightlifting classes are one hour long and will focus on either on a Snatch or the Clean and Jerk. Your coach will lead you through a specific warm-up and a technical skill element which is programmed by our head Weightlifting Coach with a focus on technique. Each class is led by one of our expert coaches who will tailor elements of the class to suit each lifters ability.

Weightlifting is for everyone. Whether you are a total beginner or a seasoned lifter, our classes will cater for all abilities.
