Olympic Weightlifting


Led by our head coach Bryce Knight, Thunder Barbell Weightlifting Club was established in 2013.  In 2021 we were lucky enough to move into a dedicated weightlifting room in the CFTSV facility. Boasting 13 training platforms fully equiped with a range of weights - it truly is the best training space in North Queensland. Club members have the opportunity to compete in a number of Club rounds and QWA weightlifting competitions over the year.  

Junior Weightlifting classes are offered from 13 years of age from 4pm-5pm on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon.  Coached adult classes take place from 5pm-7pm Monday and Wednesday and 4pm-6pm on Fridays.  The platforms are open weekdays from 5am-11am and 3pm-7pm with programming provided via True Coach for members of the club.

We offer a free trial session for anyone wanting to see what it is all about prior to committing to a membership.  Once you make that decision we recommend a one on one session with one of our expert weightlifting coaches to get you going.
