Olympic weightlifting for everyday strength and functionality

Olympic weightlifting is an essential component of CrossFit training. At our box in Hawthorn East in Melbourne, we teach our athletes how to safely move light to heavy loads of weight, once a solid foundation of technique has been built.

We lift, not just to be strong, but to support our bodies through the activities of everyday life. Olympic weightlifting is about intelligence and functionality, and is perfect for anyone who cares about their physical abilities and overall wellbeing.

Perfecting everyday movements
How many times have you heard of injuries occurring when people are performing routine daily tasks? Lifting boxes, gardening, carrying bags of groceries, and playing with children all require the movements taught in Olympic weightlifting. You are most likely already using your body to squat, bend, lift, carry, push and pull, so be smart about it, and learn safe and effective techniques.

Training in Olympic weightlifting can help you become stronger, lose weight, and increase power, but the most important benefit is correct technique for fundamental movements that are already incorporated into your everyday life.

Learn Olympic weightlifting
Olympic weightlifting is taught as part of our CrossFit workouts at Hawthorn East, and also in specific weightlifting courses that we offer. We welcome both beginners and seasoned athletes to join our friendly and supportive CrossFit community. Everyone can benefit and have fun at the same time!
