Mid-Missouri Weightlifting Club - MMWC
The Mid-Missouri Weightlifting Club (MMWC) was established in February of 2014. As Mid-Missouri's only sanctioned USA Weightlifting club, our mission is to advance the sport of Olympic-style weightlifting in the area. The MMWC is home to many competitive and recreational weightlifters, including world record holders, national champions, American Open and University Nationals competitors, as well as several local level medalists. The MMWC team is guided by several qualified coaches, with credentials from USA Weightlifting (USAW), the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), and the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). Combined, our coaches have over 80 years of experience producing highly competitive athletes.
Membership in the MMWC is open to all individuals wanting to become more proficient with the snatch and clean and jerk. Some of the many benefits of joining MMWC include a motivating team training environment, exceptional weekly coaching and programming, as well as coaching and support in competition.
Team training sessions are held Wednesdays at 5:30 pm and Saturdays at 12:30 pm.
