PARAMOUNT BARBELL CLUB
Paramount Barbell Club is one of the largest Olympic Weightlifting programs in the Northwest. Our classes are open to all skill levels from beginner to experienced lifters. Classes go in-depth on the snatch, clean and jerk, and supplemental lifts (squats, presses, pulls, etc). We cover everything from using Olympic Weightlifting to train for Sports or competing at the Local and National Level in the Sport of Olympic Weightlifting.
What We Offer for Olympic Weightlifting:
- Coaching for Beginners to Advanced
Whether you are just starting out and learning the technique or have been Olympic Weightlifting for years we can help you. Our programs are designed to develop your technique as a priority all while still improving your strength.
- Online Programming
Our programming is all online via the Train Heroic app that allows our athletes to follow the program in house or at another location. We have many athletes that train at different locations during the week due to distance and then come in once a week to work with our coaches. We also have over a dozen athletes following from out of state and do remote coaching via video analysis. You can now compete for Team Paramount without being local!
- Olympic Weightlifting Clinics
We have been hosting Weightlifting Clinics since 2012 at our facility to offer dedicated technique sessions for those not able to commit to a membership and just looking to get some pointers and to brush up their skills. We also go offsite to host gyms for these clinics to provide coaching to their members and/or staff.
- Coaching for Competitive Olympic Weightlifters
Paramount Barbell Club is a weightlifting team registered with USA Weightlifting. We have been on the local competition scene since 2013 and have sent athletes to the Regional and National level in competition. Coach Chris brings a wealth of experience having competed at the National level since 2013 and has set multiple Masters National Records (M35 81kg).
