Olympic Weightlifting Club

Whether you are a crossfitter who has fallen in love with weightlifting or you are already a student of the overhead lifts, Roots Olympic Weightlifting Club (called Oly Club) is for you! We provide a dedicated track of training and technique work for anyone who wants to take their weightlifting to the next level.

WHAT WE DO

Olympic Weightlifting is difficult and sometimes a frustrating pursuit. Our program strives to develop strength, accuracy and consistency through solid coaching and programming. Coach Ryan Landis C.S.C.S., USAW Advanced Sports Performance, Crossfit Level 1, Crossfit Kids, Crossfit Coaches Prep utilizes his extensive background in coaching weightlifters by using a periodized lifting cycle to achieve maximal results.

There are three Oly Club cycles a year. Each programmed cycle lasts 12 weeks and ends with an Olympic Weightlifting Meet competition that is open to the public. While competition is not required, participation is highly encouraged and a great venue to set personal records.

WHY WE DO IT

Simple; we love weightlifting and want to be stronger, faster and more technically proficient! Having a community of lifters working toward a common goal in a conducive environment is what we are all about.

WHEN WE DO IT

Three programmed workouts a week. We meet on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 -7:00 pm.
