Weightlifting is the only barbell sport of the Olympic Games. However, individuals of all ages compete in USA Weightlifting sanctioned events at the local, regional and national level. Big Blue offers coaching instruction to athletes wanting to compete in weightlifting, and to those who just want to learn the Olympic lifts to add variety to their fitness routine.
All of our athletes are working their own programs. Some athletes train in a one-on-one coaching environment, while others prefer to come to team practice time. We will find what’s best and appropriate for you based on your level of experience and goals.
