May Day! May Day!

Starting May 1st, there will be a few changes to our operations. For our regular members, it is business as usual. Keep training hard! You’ve all been doing great and the April PR board shows it!

Drop-ins: Our drop-in rate will be increasing to $20/session. A 5 session punch card is available for $65 ($13/session) and is good for 3 months.

First Timers: Anyone interested in training with us will be required to book a one time 30min introductory one on one appointment with us. This includes those wishing to do drop-ins. The rate for this initial appointment will be $30.

I’d like to thank all of our loyal customers so far as we continue to grow and improve our service, and continue to add kilos to our lifts!

NCCP Weightlifting Club Coach Course

We will be hosting a NCCP Weightlifting Club Coach Course at our facility the weekend of June 8-9. This course will delivered by the Ontario Weightlifting Association course facilitators Francois Gravelle and Danielle Robitaille (former Canadian National Champion, Canadian Record Holder, and International Team Canada Coach).

This course is one of the requirements for obtaining the certified “Club Coach” designation from the National Coaches Certification Program.

The course covers proper execution and instruction of the snatch, clean and jerk, and assistance exercises. It will also cover safety, programming, competition preparation, and the rules and procedures of a weightlifting competition.

This is a great opportunity for coaches for professional development, or athletes interested in competing and/or coaching as well.
