The next Olympic Lifting cycle starts next Monday, October 31st and is open to non-members!

24 Oct

Video from the actual Olympic Lifting meet from this past Saturday will be posted soon – until then, enjoy this little training montage 🙂  Don’t worry, all the good competitive lifts are coming up in the next one!  This is just further proof that we can all learn from our mistakes!


The next Olympic Lifting Cycle is set to start next Monday, October 31, 2011.  The Cycle will last for 6 weeks and will include classes from 6-8 and 8-10pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and a Saturday series of classes based on the individual members’ availability. There will also be an alternate Sunday class every weekend provided for those members who are absolutely unable to make classes during the week.  Each class will be capped at 5 attendees.  If enough people are interested in a third hour at a different time of day we will explore adding a separate hour.

The cost to attend will no longer include membership (which means anyone outside of CFCC is permitted to attend too!) but will instead be $400 for a total of 6 weeks of 4 classes per week which are EACH two hours long.  You may pay the $400 in two installments of $200 for the first 3 weeks and $200 for the second.  As most of you know, these classes involve specified training from Coach Jim Rutter which culminates in an Olympic Lifting competition taking place December 10th. If you are not interested in competing you may still take the class.

We’ve seen great success with these classes and we can’t wait for the next cycle to start!  If you are interested in attending, please email as soon as possible with “OLYMPIC LIFTING” in the subject line to and tell us which class you’re interested in!

    When you clean 330lbs for a triple, you can dance like that too…

    […] Have you read about the next cycle of Olympic Lifting class? We are currently considering adding an additional 4-6pm Olympic Lifting class. Let us know if you would like to be involved! The 6-8pm is already filled and the 8-10pm is tentatively filled as well. Just to reiterate, if you are doing the Olympic Lifting classes this time around, you are not required to hold a CFCC membership during that time and may pause your membership. Record, going rx'd at 120lbs. […]
