The CFTC Lifting Club meets once per week at our CFTC location in Vienna, VA. CFTC LIFT focuses on preparing members to improve the Olympic weightlifting movements of the Clean & Jerk and the Snatch using techniques and other exercises that have direct transfer to these movements. We hope you can join us!
Dates: Begins Sunday, January 6, First cycle Jan. 6 - Feb. 10
Times: Sundays, 9AM - 10AM
Price: $33 per month members, $40/month non-members
Note: If you sign up before the start of the program (in December), the membership will be valid for January
Additional access - lifting club members can get 24/7 access to the gym at a reduced rate. Message email@example.com if you would like to combine these options.
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 a USAW certified coach. 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.
Details subject to change
CFTC LIFT will program on 6-week cycles. This allows us to benchmark the major lifts at the beginning and 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.
As CFTC LIFT grows, we will invest in dedicated equipment needed for the programming and technique drills. By the end of the second programming cycle, we will have a new men’s and women’s barbell that will only be used for Olympic lifts outside of the normal CrossFit barbell wear and tear.
We will continue to improve the equipment available, and the more people who show up, the faster we can make these changes.
