The Weightlifting Experience Is Coming To The CVEATC

By Nick Gasparro 

Chula Vista, CA – As part of our sponsorship with Bright Fitness, the Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center (CVEATC) is excited to be hosting the Weightlifting Experience. This once in a lifetime opportunity will allow people to train with three of the best weightlifting coaches in the world. The weightlifting camp will be taking place April 23 – 29, 2023 at the CVEATC. With a purchase of a ticket, athletes will have access to three separate two-day seminars with each coach, six nights of accommodations at the CVEATC, including overnight stay in our dormitories, and access to our dining services (breakfast, lunch, and dinner). This will be the first time the CVEATC will be hosting The Weightlifting Experience. 

The weightlifting experience is a unique opportunity for advanced weightlifters and competitors to train at 3 world-class seminars in a single week. The Weightlifting Experience is appropriate for Olympic lifters of all experience levels from novice amateurs to advanced competitors. However, if you are very new to weightlifting or coming from powerlifting or CrossFit, you will still get a lot out of these seminars. The weightlifting experience is the best value for your money (and time) to level up your weightlifting technique. All participants can get CEUs or Continued education credits for school me certifications. Please note it is limited to 150 attendees. 

The 3 seminars will be led by 

  • Coach Jim Schmitz, 3-time US Olympics team coach, 50 years of competition & coaching experience 
  • Coach Manuel Buitrago,Founder & Director of Ma Strength, Expert in the Chinese weightlifting methods 
  • Coach Oleksiy Torokhtiy, 2-time Olympian, Medalist in multiple World & European Championships
