The Olympic Lifts – Snatch and Clean & Jerk are two of the most technical movements in sport and within a CrossFit setting it is one of the areas that requires the most dedicated time to become proficient at. Our specialty Olympic Lifting classes offer the opportunity to improve technique in the Olympic lifts as well as improving overall strength.
Each session comprises specific skill work within the Olympic lifts as well as strength building exercises, the classes are generally structured in 6-8 week cycles culminating in a testing session at the end, ideally participants would attend all classes from the beginning of each cycle but it is possible to join the class mid cycle.
These classes are suited to lifters of all levels (Beginner to Competitive). Beginners are particularly encourage to attend the session, coaches will ensure that sessions are modified to be suitable for your current ability level
For those interested in entering weightlfting competitions there are opportunities to compete locally and nationally, competitions are held regularly in South Australia – speak to one of the coaches if you are keen to get onto the platform and compete (it will be one of the most rewarding things you’ve ever done!)
Currently our Olympic Lifting class runs 8am -9am Saturday mornings. If you are looking for extra specific work on the Olympic lifts we offer 1:1 sessions as well
