I began competing in the Sport of Weightlifting in 2013 after practicing the movements for many years playing football and competing in Crossfit.I was motivated to develop FWC for two reasons.
1. Learning to Snatch and Clean and Jerk second hand through training for football and CrossFit I never thought to take my barbell abilities to a competitive platform. I simply thought competing in Olympic Weightlifting was just for small Turkish people… really!
2. Also, at 29 years old and being a military family, when I finally did decide to dedicate my training solely to Weightlifting the search for a coach was not easy. I tried walking into CrossFit gyms, making calls to corporate gyms, and searched facebook pages for a local Weightlifting coach. It took a chance encounter while buying a barbell to find my first Weightlifting coach.As much as I currently enjoy competing as a master and relish my experiences participating in 2 USAW National championships (2013, 2014), I often wonder what could have been had the Sport of Weightlifting been introduced to me earlier by a dedicated Weightlifting coach.
It is my hope that Find a Weightlifting Coach takes chance out of the equation and helps connect Weightlifting athletes to dedicated Weightlifting Coaches. It is also my hope that Find a Weightlifting Coach raises awareness for the sport of Weightlifting and connects the right 10 year old with the right coach and the two help the US win gold medals!

I got started with Olympic Weightlifting late in the game (being in my forties), but I was obsessed from the very first hook grip. It was early on that I realized the critical necessity of finding a great coach that could accelerate my training performance and results. Olympic Weightlifting is the “pinnacle of performance” and it’s a strength skill that demands high standards of professional coaching.
I discovered how frustrating and time consuming the process was to search for a Weightlifting coach. No system existed to locate outstanding coaches without spending an exhaustive amount of time and effort conducting online research.
This was a huge problem. That’s why the idea was born to offer a solution to quickly and easily locate qualified, passionate, and talented Olympic Weightlifting coaches without wasting time and effort.
The idea behind Find-A-Weightlifting-Coach.com (FWC) was to create an essential resource for athletes and coaches to connect with one another and also serve different coaching needs (one-on-one, group, remote coaching, meet prep, etc).
We’re very excited to offer great value to coaches and athletes all over the world.
The mission of FWC is to quickly and effortlessly connect the best coaches and athletes in the best way possible. Additionally, our mission is to help grow and honor the amazing sport of Olympic Weightlifting.
Our vision is to empower athletes and coaches by becoming the recognized platform in Olympic Weightlifting coaching and education services.
We hope to serve you well and look forward to assisting in your growth.
