What is CFSB Weightlifting?
This will be an Olympic Weightlifting class. The term “weightlifting”, although it is thrown around a lot in the fitness world, is exclusive to the sport of weightlifting, meaning, the Snatch and Clean & Jerk. Our goal for this class will be to provide a better learning environment with longer (90 minute) classes meant specifically for the sport of weightlifting. This is a program in and of itself, not a supplementary program. It is a main training program that will be run in 4-6-8 and 12 week “blocks” of weightlifting. So, Squatting, Snatching, Cleaning, Jerking, Pulls, and all of their variations will be included in the program on a Monday, Wednesday, Saturday schedule.
The Olympic Weightlifting class is a premium class and requires an additional service agreement to attend. The classes run 90 minutes in duration.Check out the prices here

The Olympic Weightlifting class is a specialty class specifically designed to get people better at the Olympic lifts, namely the Snatch and the Clean & Jerk.
The Olympic lifts are very technical lifts that take a long time to master. We created the Olympic Weightlifting class because we noticed a desire among our members to specifically work on the Olympic lifts.
