Controlled Competition

Friday Feb 4th we will be conducting a Controlled Competition for our Elite National Weightlifting Team.

2x National Champion overall #1 Female Weightlifter Sarah Robles

2010 Collegiate National Champ, 2010 World University Champ, & 2010 World Team Member Alex Lee

2008 Olympian, 2010 Pan Am Bronze Medalist, Multiple World Team Member for Mexico Luz Mercedes Acosta

2010 Pan Am, World University, & World Team Member Collin Ito

2010 National Bronze Medalist Keith Weitz

Multiple University National Team Member & Arizona State Champion Craig Rintoul

Along with several other top lifters from Team Arizona Weightlifting.  This event is designed to push our athletes after a four week cycle of training we will conduct public events such as this once a month.  I am trying to simulate as much as possible the feel and emotion of a competition.  We are training and developing the mindset as much as the physical body.  Athletes must practice how to prepare for each competition and big lift first mentally.  Having a strong mind will prepare them for any situation at the National, Pan Am, World, and Olympic Stage.

Each athlete will be told what their opening attempt will be and then they will be able to pick their next attempts.  They will be given 4 attempts.  They will be judge strictly on all lifts.

If you are an National Elite Olympic Weightlifter and are interested in training and competing with our Lifters.  Contact me at

Take care

Coach Joe
