At Eminence, we value hard work, consistency, and getting comfortable with the uncomfortable. When you start incorporating strength training into your gym exercise routine, you not only burn calories but increase lean muscle mass. Our Eminence Barbell Club is registered as a USA Weightlifting Club, and are coached by only USA Weightlifting certified coaches.
Eminence Barbell Club –
Olympic Weightlifting consists of two competition lifts – the snatch, and the clean & jerk. In comparison with other strength sports, which test limit strength (with or without lifting aids), weightlifting tests aspects of human ballistic limits (explosive strength); the lifts are therefore executed faster—and with more mobility and a greater range of motion during their execution—than other strength movements. The lifts performed in the sport of weightlifting, and in particular their component lifts (e.g. squats, deadlifts, cleans), are commonly used by elite athletes in other sports to train for both explosive and functional strength.
At Eminence, we love Olympic Weightlifting, so we offer Olympic Weightlifting classes for both the beginner and the advanced athlete multiple times per week – all coached by our USA Weightlifting certified coaches. The classes provide a periodized mesocycle that culminates in an In-House Olympic Weightlifting Meet, which provides a low pressure competition setting to help our members push themselves and get out of their comfort zone. Work towards your goals, and stay motivated to be consistent!!
