We welcome athletes of all stripes, both male and female: Olympic Weightlifters, Power Lifters, Crossfit, Track & Field, Football Players, etc. Come by, train with us and see if you are interested in training on a regular basis.
We ask lifters to donate $15 per training session (first session is free) or $60 per month for open access to all training sessions. We also require that all regular members join USA Weightlifting.
An East Coast Gold Satellite Center and USA Weightlifting Training Facility
Central Maryland Gold Olympic Weightlifting is a tax-exempt organization that operates an Olympic Weightlifting training facility located in the 550 Highland Center, 550 Highland Street, Frederick, Maryland 21701. Olympic Weightlifting is one of the single best training protocols available for developing explosive power, flexibility, coordination and strength in athletics. Well-coached Olympic Weightlifting is statistically one of the safest sports practiced in the world.
We are a USA Weightlifting (USAW) sanctioned club with two USAW Certified National Level Coaches and six USAW Certified Level One Coaches who volunteer their time to work with athletes in a low coach to athlete ratio environment. Our membership has included many nationally ranked School Age, Junior, Senior, and Master category lifters, both male and female, champion high school Track & Field athletes, as well as football & baseball players.
We individualize programs for any level of athlete. Regardless of age or fitness level, you will find substantial improvement in balance, agility, speed, and strength. If you have been exposed to the Olympic Lifts (the Snatch and the Clean & Jerk) in a CrossFit program, we can help you master these lifts. We can even design a short-term program for your sports team.
