CFK PERFORMANCE powered by TRISTAR WEIGHTLIFTING
Weightlifting is not just for weightlifters – it is one of the most transferable training systems around! You will see benefits in your daily life, such as increased joint and bone strength, improved balance and stability, and mental confidence, among others.
Lifting objects from the floor and putting them over your head is a very basic and required skill for everyday life. Having a strong core, back, and legs will not only benefit you in everyday life but make you stronger and healthier so you can enjoy your life more.
Here’s a quick List of Benefits but there are many more:
- Injury prevention and overall fitness
- Increased Core Strength = less back pain
- Increased CardioVascular health! (your heart rate still gets up and you will gain muscular endurance and a decent level of conditioning.
- Lifting weight can be a challenging but fun alternative to conventional gym workouts
- It’s a great way to burn fat because you are building muscle and increasing your metabolism
- It’s an awesome community since you have lots of time to socialize with those around, and your not constantly out of breath!
- It’s a little less fast paced than say our CrossFit classes so it’s a fun alternative to those days when just don’t feel like breathing hard!
How does that apply to me?
Most people know that Olympic weightlifting is an amazing Sports and athletic performance program. As a sport it’s contested both on a local, national, and international level (think Olympics). What a lot of people don’t know is that from a training perspective, the lifts, or versions of (power clean, push press, front squats, etc…) provide amazing benefits to any training or fitness program.
Implementing the lifts in your training program can be both intimidating and risky if you aren’t doing them correctly. Our team of coaches are very educated and well trained on a National level and have experience working with both high level competitors and people who have never lifted a barbell. Through proper skill development and progressions, they’ll teach you how to safely reap the many benefits of Olympic Weightlifting.

CFK Performance Memberships are divided into three tracks:
Tri-Star Weightlifting – ($99/month)
Tri-Star Compete – ($129/Month)
Weightlifting is an Olympic sport – yes those Olympics – and has the opportunity for sponsorship and competition at the international level. We facilitate a respectful, team environment for those interested in training for Weightlifting competition. As coaches, we continue to broaden our knowledge of the sport and help devise the best individual approach to training for our competitors – from exercise selection, volume, and training frequency, to nutrition, sleep, and recovery.
We have competition experience ourselves, have trained in, and coached Weightlifting for years. We continuously seek the expertise of advanced coaches beyond our level, and have taken our own lifters to National level competitions. Let us help you today, and watch the kilos pile on the bar!
Athletes will receive 5 days/week programming, get access to CFK’s Tri-Star Weightlifting classes (3x/week), Open Gym hours, and meet coaching.
Programming is event focused and the goal is 1 rep max Snatch and Clean and Jerk as that’s what’s tested at competitions. Workouts will include lots of classic lifts plus squatting, pulling, and plenty of accessory work to create balance and longevity in the athlete.
Sports Performance – ($129/Month)
The focus of Tri-Star sports performance is increasing general athletic ability and improving performance on the field of play. Athletes receive access to Tri-Star Weightlifting classes (3x/week), as well as unlimited access to CFK Burn classes.
CFK Burn classes: Programming will include high-intensity conditioning training to supplement weightlifting classes. We use simple but effective movements with moderate weight loading to maximize power output and increase general athleticism.
CrossFit Track – (All Programs are included in CFK Membership)
Weightlifting is a third of the system we follow. In CrossFit we want to be incrementally better over time and Life is the contest, not the gym. We use the lifts because of the general preparedness they bring to the challenges we may see in an emergency situation. Body awareness, moving loads efficiently, core stability, mobility, and general coordination are all valuable skills for life that are learned and improved through weightlifting. The workouts will be similar to the Competitive Program but much more technique focussed. No Squatting or heavy pulling, but plenty of skill and assistance work for injury prevention.
