Personalized Coaching

The standard CFTC group class strives to create general physical preparedness, and these classes are created for everyone. With weightlifting, however, we are all starting at a different place in our abilities, mobility, and strength numbers. Each CFTC Barbell Club session will be led by a CrossFit certified coach with programs created by with USAW competitions in mind. Each week will have enough time and small classes to allow for video review and adjusting the focus of the day if needed to focus on what you need as an athlete.

Progressive Cycles

CFTC LIFT will program on 6-week cycles. This allows us to benchmark the major lifts at the end of the cycle so that we can measure progress more effectively. It can be a grind to show up every week and feel like you’re doing the same thing every time. With 6-week cycles it also allows us to add variance to the programming with a specific programming focus for 6 weeks.


Dedicated Equipment

As CFTC LIFT grows, we will invest in dedicated equipment needed for the programming and technique drills.

We will continue to improve the equipment available, and the more people who show up, the faster we can make these changes.

Oly-specific equipment:

  • Women’s American Barbell training bar

  • Rogue fractional plates

  • Selection of group class barbells
