Group Training

Train in a group setting alongside other weightlifters under the constant guidance of an experienced national or international coach.  We develop athletes to compete using a team format.  Athletes make significant progress with the ability to share training with other skilled athletes.  Each athlete is provided a written program that is designed for their development and for their competition goals. We offer weightlifting team training at two locations between the hours of 3:30pm to 7:30 pm most weekdays and on Saturday mornings.  [Contact Praxis for information on acceptance into a group.]

Remote Programming

Athletes have different recovery needs, time constraints and goals.  Decades of research have shown progress is best achieved when following a carefully designed training cycle for adaptation. Praxis remote programming is designed for athletes training at home or in a remote gym location.  Our training philosophies are based on a combination of Russian and Bulgarian methods, however we use a wide range of periodization models based on the lifter’s ability to recover, skill, age, competition schedule and many other variables.
