To insure the safety of our patrons and upkeep of our equipment/facilities, we’ve decided to implement a mandatory skill check for any user wishing to utilize the platforms areas to execute any of the following Olympic weightlifting movements and their derivatives:

  • Snatch
  • Clean
  • Jerk

The skill check will insure that patrons follow proper equipment use, good technical foundations and meet necessary flexibility and strength prerequisites. If unable to meet these requirements, there will be workshops made available to users looking to improve upon these deficiencies.
