If you’re looking for the best weightlifting club in Brisbane, you’ve found it. Our weekly weightlifting club is designed for anyone (beginner or experienced) who wants to take their weightlifting to the next level. Our weekly club sessions are headed by expert coaches who will take you through fundamental movements, technique drills, accessory work and coaching that is specific to your needs in order to improve your lifting game.
Who Should Come to Our Weightlifting Club?
Everyone! Absolutely anyone who wants to perform better at whatever it is that they do will benefit from weight lifting. Why? Mastering Olympic Lifts (the Clean & Jerk and the Snatch) will provide you with numerous rewards once mastered, including both physical and neurological benefits.
What Can You Expect?
If you come to our Brisbane weightlifting club consistently, you will see rapid increase in strength, speed, coordination, power and flexibility – the key skills required for improved athleticism in general. Most importantly, you will have fun. Learning and mastering new skills is a great confidence boost, and our friendly group environment is sure to keep you motivated. Olympic lifting movements can not be self-learned (due to their complexity), so it is important that you are taught by a qualified weightlifting coach.
Before You Come Along…
Before you learn the Clean & Jerk and the Snatch, you first need a proficient strength base in fundamental movements including squat, deadlift, power clean and split jerk. So, prior to commencing at our weightlifting club, we require you to complete a movement and mobility assessment with one of our expert weightlifting coaches. Upon completion of this assessment, you will be provided with individual mobility drills relative to your areas of restriction and accessory strength/corrective exercises specific to you. Your introduction to weightlifting club will be relative to your experience level.
How to Get Started
In order to attend Weightlifting club classes you need to have a full Athletic Zone membership. (Athletes on access-only memberships that would like to attend Weightlifting Club will be required to upgrade their membership to the full access rate).
We also strongly recommend that current members who are new to this style of training complete our Weightlifting Foundations Program, which will provide you with technique fundamentals and movement/mobility assessments. The Foundations Program can be purchased here.
If you are not a member of Athletic Zone and would like to get started, you will receive our Foundations Program as a part of your induction process upon signing up.
Once you have completed your intro program (optional for current members), you are free to enter into our weekly Weightlifting Club sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays at 5.00pm.
To ensure the right amount of attention is given to each athlete, we require you to register for the class the day before (online). You can do this by visiting our timetable.
