Olympic Weightlifting

Progress takes time…
and a good coach.

Lion’s Roar Barbell Club is a small but mighty group of competitive weightlifters. One of the few USAW clubs in the upstate, we have members from a wide variety of backgrounds. We’re a community dedicated to perfecting our technique and getting stronger, together.

Our team lifts during open gym times and during the four classes dedicated to weightlifting each week. We’re led by head coach James Page, who holds a USAW Level 2 certification and has years of enthusiastic, first-hand experience with the sport. He specializes in teaching people to move the barbell safely and efficiently by personalizing his cues based on an individual lifter’s needs, abilities and skill.

Members have access to an array of quality equipment, including three dedicated platforms, Eleiko competition bars, Pendlay training plates and a set of jerk blocks. We also strive to offer educational experiences by hosting seminars and in-house competitions.
