Benefits of olympic weightlifting

Olympic weightlifting is a key component to our programming at DefianceFit as it can help people of all ages become more athletic.

1. Improved Mobility

2. Improved Body Composition

Who doesn't want to improve their body composition? You will quickly see the changes in your own body by building muscle fast while improving athleticism through performing explosive full body lifts.

Is Olympic Weightlifting Safe?

Yes, Olympic Lifting at DefianceFit is limited to those members who have learned proper technique for the Olympic lifts through our Fundamentals course. We’d encourage people who are just learning the Olympic lifts to to perform them using PVC pipe or lighter load in DefianceFit Workouts where intensity can be high until they can perform lifts safely while under duress.
