"I have just completed a 2 day Olympic Weightlifting Course with Cheshire Barbell and what a course it was! Over the 2 days we covered the lifts, Snatch, Overhead Squat, Clean and Jerk. As well as the lifts Owner Karl showed me a huge variety of mobility exercises for my hips and shoulders. I thought I would struggle with the lifts due to a lack of flexibility, because of a lot of Rugby related injuries. But with Karl’s coaching and guidance throughout the weekend, I was able to increase my mobility and smash the lifts!!!


Working in a small group the whole weekend felt personal, with everyone getting 100% attention and being able to learn alongside like minded people. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in weightlifting. Karl’s knowledge is immense and everything is explained in an easy to understand way. Add to that the course was a shed load of fun!!


I will certainly be booking on future purses led by Karl."
