If I am already versed in the lifts, can I just join?

The short answer is, “it depends.”

As with any sport & fitness facility and program, our number one tenet for best customer experience is a member’s safety. Therefore, we strive to screen all prospective members prior to approving them joining. What someone can expect if they intend on joining the team is to go through a screening process that takes them through some functional movement screening for general kinesthetic awareness, observations of their ability to dynamically prepare their body for movement prep, and then through a battery of exercises that have direct correspondence to the sport of weightlifting. This is to ensure the prospective lifter indeed has the requisite experience to come in with a short matriculation cycle and begin team integration.

If a person passes the screening, then the lifter does not require going through the instructional classes (launched in 2016). If the lifter does not have the requisite skills, he/she will have to go through the instructional classes.

Screening costs $75 and is non-refundable.
