I wanted to train with people knowledgeable on the main strength lifts and follow a regimented strength program. I have made significant strength gains in all my lifts, have gotten rid of my chronic lumbar pain, and feel a lot more confident with the mental challenge of getting under the bar for a personal record attempt. I am considering trying the Oly program to learn another strength discipline.
Miguel Iriondo
I was looking to learn the Olympic lifts and how to incorporate them into a program for boxers. I’m stronger, more flexible, and steadier in all lifting positions. I’ve become more confident because I’m enjoying myself athletically again and I look healthier. Just Lift is a great place to train and be coached. The coaches are fantastic people and remarkably thorough – they’re in a class of their own in Ottawa. The athletes are a blast to be around.
Dylan Levac
The atmosphere at Just Lift is welcoming and energetic. Coaches are very knowledgeable and eager to help. My lifts have gone up: 45kg Clean and Jerk, 35kg Snatch, and 45kg back squat. I’ve become a more calm, collected, and driven person. Socially, I’ve made very close friendships and have overcome my stage fright. Just Lift is one of my favorite places on EARTH.
Lewis Orzech
I came to Just Lift because of their reputation for producing high-level athletes. Since joining I’ve improved my competition results and have become a better Olympic weightlifter. Just Lift is the place to be if you want to become a competitive Olympic weightlifter.
Minh Ngo
Just Lift lets me work out in a class setting with fantastic coaches. I have learned more and made more gains during the past year of working out at Just Lift than I have in years of working out on my own and with personal trainers. Fantastic gym with amazing coaches!
Albert Chang
I wanted to learn weightlifting and gain general strength outside of “CrossFit” style workouts. Just Lift was the only gym I could find that offered this in Ottawa. I have definitely gotten stronger, I’ve started to feel good about my body and what it can do, and I love being around other members of my regular classes and coaches. I love it here. I’m excited to keep coming in so I can get stronger and learn weightlifting.
Mona Noor
I’m most interested in improving my raw strength and improving core lifts (deadlift, bench press, squat). I found progress slow when I was training on my own, so I joined Just Lift. They have expert coaches and like-minded members. I’ve improved all of my lifts – I’m just a few pounds shy of 1000 lbs combined for deadlift, squat, and bench press. Great coaches, awesome members, and a supportive environment.
