Introducing our newest class – WEIGHTLIFTING

Tape up. Headgear on. Mouthguard in. 

Get ready to get strong! 

Incoming – Weekly Weightlifting classes. 

These classes will feature mainly clean and jerks and snatches, though other lifts will feature as well such as Overhead Squats, Front Squats, Bench Press and Deadlifts. 

Think of this as a progressive lifting program. 

Similar to the way we build our reps and weight percentages when we do a Back Squat cycle in class, we will also be progressing our lifts over weeks / months during these lifting classes, while of course refining technique as we go. 

What these classes are NOT is a lifting seminar like we used to do. So this isn’t necessarily for beginners trying to learn to lift. 

By all means we will work on technique but there will be a certain technique competency required to join these classes.

If you’ve been doing crossfit for a month or more, you should be good to go! 

If you’ve been lifting the same weight on your barbell during workouts for months if not years then it’s time to level up and work on your lifts. 

For many of you new to this style of a class, you can still expect a decent workout feeling but obviously there’ll be a distinct lack of burpees and machine calories on offer during this hour!! 

Apart from getting you stronger and improving technique, these classes will boost your confidence to move a heavy bar under fatigue in our regular crossfit classes. 

Our suggestion is to try these classes out from the get go, so that you don’t miss the building blocks as the programming will progress week to week. So it’s not ideal to only show up once every month. If you really want results in your lifts, this will become a weekly part of your training. 


- If you’re new, try to arrive at least 15 minutes early for your first class.
- Wear something you feel comfortable sweating in: tank and shorts/leggings for women, squatting style shorts for men.
- If you have an injury, please talk to the coach prior to class so that they can give you proper modifications.


- Rehydrate after class with water and additional natural or supplemental electrolytes. Eat a balanced snack or meal within 90 minutes of class. We recommend a protein shake or protein smoothie within 20 minutes of training to help repair muscle fibres, this will also aid in recovery, helping you get back into your next class.
- Health Tip: Flush toxins from your body, start your day with a glass of warm water and freshly squeezed lemon.
