Olympic Weightlifting


Olympic weightlifting is a multi-jointed activity that promotes and develops coordination, muscular synchronisation, joints and ligaments strength, balance, as well as self-discipline, self-belief, motivation and more.

The Olympic lifts will improve explosiveness, whether you are involved in any other sport or Crossfit. Explosiveness is a function of speed and strength.

Olympic Weightlifting can be a part of any strength and conditioning program. It is also a great way of losing unwanted weight and toning up!
