Nottingham Weightlifting Club

Olympic weightlifting for beginners to advanced athletes

Nottingham Weightlifting Club is affiliated to the British Weightlifting Association and runs from Compound Strength & Conditioning three times per week. The three sessions are coached by our British Weightlifting certified trainers.

Olymipic Weightlifting

As a sport Olympic Weightlifting consists of attempting two maximal lifts: the snatch and the clean & jerk. In competition
the combined total of the highest two successful lifts determines the overall result within a bodyweight category.

Olympic weightlifting has no equal for developing speed, flexibility and coordinated, total-body strength and muscle. The speed of the movement requires Olympic lifters to recruit every fast-twitch muscle fibre. Essentially Olympic weightlifting can completely change one’s holistic levels of strength and fitness.

Training with NWC

Nottingham weightlifting club is suitable for the beginner right through to the competitive athlete. Our classes are between 90 minutes - 2 hours long so the coach has plenty of time to spend 1:1 with everyone training in each class.

Classes can be used as a supplement to S&C to improve on the olympic lifts, or they can be attended to focus on these lifts alone as their own sport.

The sessions have a social and relaxed environment, and you're sure to make some new friends along your weightlifting journey!
