Olympic Weightlifting is a sport unto itself but is also part of strength, conditioning and athletic development programs at Notch 8. The purpose of Notch 8’s weightlifting program is to help athletes learn and perfect the Clean & Jerk and the Snatch. As a USA Weightlifting Affiliate, Notch 8 has multiple accredited coaches on staff.
In addition to using the Olympic lifts as training tools for our clients, our competitive Barbell Club is a program designed around the sport of Olympic Weightlifting. Our barbell club and competition teams treat training as a sport in and of itself, versus a tool to do other things. They still have fun but train more volume during their sessions and their training is geared toward stepping onto a platform or other arena of competition. Our athletes compete in the sport of Olympic Weightlifting and other fitness competitions ranging from CrossFit style events to obstacle course races. Serious athletes use these advanced programs as a platform to take their athleticism to the next level for their sport of choice.
