What is World of Weightlifting?


 Our mission is to assist coaches, athletes and interested individuals in acquiring information regarding the various disciplines of weight training. We are the only gym in Orange County that is solely dedicated to the sport of weightlifting. For over forty years, I have participated as an athlete or coach in Powerlifting, Bodybuilding and now olympic-style weightlifting. Weight training has become an important part of my life. Today I enjoy training athletes for weightlifting competition and/or prepare them for their sport. Our gym has everything an athlete needs; it is equipped with an array of platforms, barbells, dumbells, colored bumpers, benches, squat racks, and more. 



An important part of my weight training program includes proper nutrition, rest and overall conditioning. I am also a Senior Coach with USA Weightlifting (USAW) which is the national governing body for olympic-style weightlifting in the United States. Top competitors are selected by USAW to compete in all major international events such as Olympic Games, World Championships, World Junior Championships and Pan American games.
