Skills labs

All our skills labs are focussed on pinpointing your technique in a theme. The sessions are limited to appr. 90 minutes with a maximum of 8-16 participants. Members have discounts at our ticketshop or can use their credits to reserve a spot.


Members and non-members can try-out their max. lifts. Clubcompetitions are organised as promotional events. We provide for a IWF/IPF set-up with a competition platform and organise it by IWF/IPF rules, but all athletes are also asked to help out. E.g. loading the bar or help as “timer”. Another setup is lifting on your own platform in intervals of 15-20 minutes to get to 2 or 3 maximum lifts judged by a buddy. On our promotional info it’s made clear how we organise the club event.
