The Art of Olympic Weightlifting
Our Barbell Society brings into focus the many nuances of the Olympic lifts. This group is centered around the snatch and the clean and jerk, as well as accessory movements to compliment those lifts.
Barbell Society is a community of individuals who believe in STRENGTH! Olympic Weightlifting is our focus. The primary lifts are the Snatch and Clean & Jerk. Olympic-style weightlifting, or officially “Weightlifting” is the style of weightlifting contested at the Olympic Games. The events of weightlifting, or “lifts”, test virtually all of the muscles in an athlete’s body (including but not limited to, the legs, the back. the shoulders, the arms, the grip and the core) – more muscles than any other single sport.
The snatch and clean and jerk bring speed, power, coordination, agility, accuracy and balance to training and are indispensable to developing a well-rounded athlete – no special level of strength is required. The training for the sport brings about phenomenal increases in strength and power that are unequaled by any other form of athletic training. Weightlifting will literally transform the ordinary person to superman and superwoman!
Our 60 minute Coach led group weightlifting sessions will start with a specific warm-up, strength work (using the main lifts), movement breakdown, video analysis and a cool-down. Professional programming is designed for rapid improvement for newcomers and veteran Weightlifters.

As a coach, my daily goal is to instill habits and values to improve the human condition. I believe that CrossFit gyms are the vehicles to change the world. When backed by a team of people one can realize their greatest potential. I believe my purpose is to help support my athletes reach goals they never thought possible, whether it be physical, mental, or emotional.

Certifications: CF-L2, USAW - L1, I learned at a young age that taking your health for granted can create lifelong problems. My terrible diet led to poor energy and unhappiness. I've learned to build a healthy foundation and make better choices. The more fit I am, the happier and I feel and can be a better husband, father, and coach. Investing in oneself physically and mentally is very important. I am happy to be able to be a part of the process by coaching. You only get one body, treat it well and you will go far.
