Project Lift's Weightlifting Coaching



As you navigate your journey to learn the Olympic lifts you'll be faced with many obstacles. One of those obstacles is finding good equipment and space. We've all experienced a bar that doesn't spin, and spaces that tell you not to drop the bumper weights. 


Your search is over...


Located just off Hilliard-Rome Road, our newly fitted training hall has KG Olympic Equipment, 9 lifting platforms, jerk boxes, pulling blocks, and squat stands all in an isolated 2,000 square feet of training space making us the premier Olympic Weightlifting facility in Columbus.
