Perhaps you have seen Weightlifting in the Olympic games. The Clean & Jerk and Snatch are complex movements that can be beautifully inspiring when executed well. These high-skill movements build strength and generate tremendous power as athletes move a barbell from the ground to overhead (in a single movement = snatch; from the ground to the shoulders, then shoulders to overhead = clean & jerk).
Several FirstPower coaches are passionate about Olympic lifting, but our specialist is Coach Veronica, who has been competing in the sport for 14 years and has learned from some of the discipline’s most celebrated coaches.
“I like to take the Olympic lifts, which are very technical, and break them down into simple steps. This helps clients to learn to use their body correctly, but I try to do it in a way that is fun, too. For me, Olympic Weightlifting means lifting heavy things fast, and have fun doing it.”
*More Specialty Classes will be added to our schedule as demand grows!
