Tristar Weightlifting is a group that specializes in the sport of Olympic Weightlifting.  We are attentive coaches with competition experience that want nothing more than to share our love of Weightlifting with you.  This includes the individual who intends to compete as an athlete, in our sport or theirs, or for novices merely looking for a way to get in shape.  We have learned coaching in person from the best in Weightlifting, including Jim Schmitz, Bob Takano, and Danny Camargo, as well as experts in other disciplines, like Chris Duffin and Julien Pineau.

Weightlifters are unique in their ability to generate explosive power while displaying exemplary strength, stability, balance, flexibility, body awareness, and mental tenacity.  Many athletes choose Weightlifting to give them the edge in their sport, but we find that most people just enjoy the challenge it poses and the progress they see.  Additionally, Weightlifting boasts one of the lowest injury rates in the world of athletics, and actually makes the body more resilient as it adapts to handling heavy weights.

We have extensive experience training beginners, and excel at teaching the key lifts from the ground up.  We are happy to teach you the fundamentals through personal training sessions or intermittent seminar, but we would recommend a beginner seek out a group training option, as Olympic Weightlifting is truly a team sport at its essence.

Experienced lifters are encouraged to join our Weightlifting team, where we be provide coaching and programming three times a week while fostering a positive atmosphere to bolster training together and supporting one another.  This includes travel to local meets with a full coaching staff at your service, as well as access to equipment anytime the gym is open.  We also provide individualized programming depending on your needs.

For experienced lifters who are only looking for a space to lift, we can arrange a use of facilities option for you as well at a greatly reduced price!  You will have access to all of our Weightlifting equipment, along with other odds and ends to include: barbells, platforms, benches, squat stands, blocks, kettlebells, dumbbells, sandbags, a sled with accessories, and a yoke.  You are welcome to train anytime the gym is open: not just during class hours.

Please check out our option descriptions below, or send us your questions if you want to arrange something specific or are looking for more details!
