Abstract Black Wave


Did you know weightlifting has been a part of the Olympics for men since the inaugural modern Games in 1896, but it was only introduced for women much later, in the year 2000? It's time to catch up!


Weightlifting, often referred to as 'Olympic-style weightlifting' or simply 'Olympic weightlifting,' is a dynamic and explosive strength sport consisting of two specific lifts: the snatch and the clean & jerk. These lifts require not only raw strength but also precision, technique, speed, balance, power, and coordination, making Olympic weight lifting both a challenging and rewarding endeavour.


Olympic weightlifting isn't just for elite athletes—it's a dynamic and exhilarating sport that anyone can enjoy and benefit from! Imagine feeling stronger, more powerful, and more confident than ever before as you master the art of lifting a barbell with precision and grace.


Weightlifting has been a constant in my own training for years, something I eagerly anticipate each session. It's a shared passion within my family; my husband, a former weightlifting athlete, secured the British Championship title three years in a row. Meanwhile, our daughter Amber reigns as the current British U10's champion in her weight class.


Total Body Strength: Olympic weightlifting engages every major muscle group in your body, from your legs and back to your arms and core, helping you build strength like never before.


Sense of Achievement: Achieving new personal bests and mastering challenging lifts will give you an incredible sense of accomplishment and pride, boosting your confidence and motivation to keep pushing yourself to new heights.


Enhanced Metabolic Conditioning: Olympic weightlifting workouts are highly demanding and can help improve cardiovascular fitness and metabolic conditioning.


Mind-Body Connection: Experience the thrill of mastering complex movements and techniques while developing focus, discipline, and mental resilience that carries over into all areas of your life.


As a certified Olympic weightlifting coach accredited by British Weight Lifting, my mission is to make the sport accessible and enjoyable for both beginner athletes and the general population alike.


Whether you're just starting out or looking to enhance your skills, I provide personalised coaching and training programs designed to help you master the basics, refine your technique, and elevate your performance to new heights.

If you'd told me earlier in the year I would be enjoying Olympic weightlifting and lifting the weight that I am, I wouldn't have believed it. - Sarah B
