About Fylde Coast Weightlifting Club

The club's ethos is the same as it's founding in 2017, to create a community that is focussed on the enjoyment and development of weight lifting across the Fylde coast.

Every Sunday we lift in two classes, 9 am for beginners or those coming back to Olympic Lifting, and 10 am for intermediates.

You don't have to be a member of CrossFit Blackpool or Fylde Coast Weightlifting to join us for a class, as we have a pay-as-you-go payment option

Coaches Nicole Booth & Sally Thompson.
