MIKE CARWRIGHT | HEAD COACH
Involved in the sport of Olympic Weightlifting for over 40 years and still competing today. Represented TeamGB and Team England as both athlete and coach. Winner of many national, British and world masters titles and records.
Weightlifting, also called Olympic-style weightlifting, is an athletic discipline where the athlete must attempt to lift the maximum amount of weight they can from ground to overhead. The two competition lifts and they are the snatch and the clean and jerk. In comparison with other strength sports, which test strength (with or without lifting aids), Weightlifting tests aspects of explosive strength; the lifts are therefore executed faster—and with more mobility and a greater range of motion during their execution—than other strength movements. Properly executed, the snatch and the clean and jerk are both dynamic and explosive while appearing graceful.
Send us a message that you are coming and we can talk about making some space. We welcome new lifters and experienced lifters from all over. Sometimes our classes get full, so give us a heads up before you come just so that we can make sure we have space.
