Mark is a level 4 Specialist Exercise Instructor, British Weightlifting Coach and a BWL referee. He regularly competes in the sport of ‘Olympic’ Weightlifting, which in turn, has competitively fuelled Mark’s desire to coach others. The Snatch, Clean and Jerk and their derivatives are an excellent tool to have in the trainee’s exercise vocabulary. They are used in most Strength and Conditioning programmes throughout the world and are a staple part of Locker 27’s training ideology. It is well documented that the lifts can improve physical qualities such as strength, speed, power and flexibility. The lifts can also provide trainees with a sense of purpose in their training through testing the limits of the body in this extraordinary sport. Mark aims to support members of all ages in learning and becoming proficient in the lifts to help achieve their goals. Mark wants to cultivate a training environment that encourages aspiring lifters to enjoy the challenge and reap the benefits of Olympic Weightlifting.
