Olympic Weightlifting gym in Toronto offering weightlifting group & personal coaching, seminars and international weightlifting training camps

“I am a beginner to the world of weightlifting, having only a limited exposure to the Clean & Jerk and the Snatch through CrossFit. I signed up for the Varbanov School Certification Course hoping to increase my understanding and abilities in performing the olympic lifts, and will admit that I was svery intimidated by these complex movements. 

Alex and Irina were wonderful coaches and were able to communicate the basics of the Olympic lifts in a way that made them seem simple, and not the least bit scary. I can’t count the number of little tips and pointers that I picked up over the course of the weekend, all of which have proven to be extremely valuable. By the end of the weekend, I had managed to add 20 lbs to my Front Squat PR… the little things do make a difference! 

Beyond that, there was extensive discussion surrounding coaching and programming for the sport of weightlifting, all of which was very new to me. I enjoyed these conversations, and learned a lot that I’m sure I will be applying in the future. In the end, I got everything I was looking for out of the Varbanov School Certification Course. It was a fantastic way for a beginner to get a thorough introduction to weightlifting, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anybody with an interest to the Olympic lifts.”
