The Hawthorn Weightlifting Club is an entity dedicated to producing athletes in the sport of Olympic Weightlifting.

The club has a unique style passed down by generations of high performance coaches and refined by each of our current professional coaches and their individual experiences and expertise. 

The main coaching service is an open session where we provide personalised programming and technical advice. We have a wide range of other options including group classes, one-on-one sessions and even remote coaching for those who can’t make it to Hawthorn regularly.

We aim to provide a training environment that promotes the best possible results for every athlete regardless of their level of involvement.
