Proof Fitness has the two best weightlifting gyms in Lexington, Kentucky, conveniently located in downtown Lexington and in the Tates Creek Centre. Weightlifting, also known as Olympic Lifting, is a discipline in which athletes attempt maximum lifts of a loaded barbell in two competition lifts: the Snatch and the Clean & Jerk. Weightlifting’s movements and training techniques have long been used by elite athletes, particularly team sport and track & field athletes, due to the inherent combination of strength training, coordination and dynamic movement. Weightlifting can be an amazing tool for general physical fitness.
Weightlifting neatly packages and develops muscle recruitment, balance, coordination, mobility, strength, power and speed. Weightlifting classes at Proof Fitness can be challenging to master, but your learning experience will be safe and effective with knowledgeable coaching from our certified instructors.
The weightlifting teams at Proof Fitness give you the most platform time possible. After conquering the basics of Snatch and Clean & Jerk, you will spend time refining these movements, then supplementing them with strength or mobility/stability exercises. Each weightlifting class is coached by your well qualified Proof Fitness coach. At Proof Fitness, our equipment, facilities, programming and coaching are designed to provide the optimal environment for weightlifting training.
Weight training is a common type of strength training for developing the strength and size of skeletal muscles. It utilizes the force of gravity in the form of weighted bars, dumbbells or weight stacks in order to oppose the force generated by muscle through concentric contraction. Weight training uses a variety of specialized equipment to target specific muscle groups and types of movement. Benefits of weight training include:
