OLY in Illinois

I didn't know where else to put this (If it's in the wrong place please let me know).

I was wondering if anyone knew of a group, or person, in my area (Chicago, South Suburbs)who does olympic lifting. I figured the people on here, compared to all the other people I know, would be the best source for finding an OLY group.

Re: OLY in Illinois

Yes and Yes.

Windy City Weightlifting Club is the club. They train out of Buffalo Grove. I have e-mailed with the one of the coaches and just miss the opportunity to get up there and train with them. There fees are very good (about what a CF gym is).

They also do some training in Naperville. I have met with one of their coaches and had a semi-private session (I was the only one there). We talked about starting a weekly weightlifting meet-up for interested people at the Naperville facility. They sounded interested, but it never went anywhere.

The Naperville facility is nice. Good platforms, good equipment. If anyone in interested in forming a meet-up let me. There may be a small fee to get them to open the facility and do some coaching. For the record, these guys impressed me.

I PM'd back.

Anyone interested in possibly forming up a Olift meet-up in Naperville, reply here or IM me. I would be interested in meeting once or twice a month in the evening. Let me know.

Pat

Re: OLY in Illinois

I'm interested. Pat, shoot me an email if anything develops. Best time for myself would be Saturday afternoons. If during the week, I'd have to know in advance. I also have multiple members and at least one of my other coaches that would be interested.

Re: OLY in Illinois

I have e-mailed the coach from Windy City Weightlifting. He is out of town the next few weeks. He was interested in doing a "weightlifting meet-up" at his facility in Naperville. His club regularly does them on Saturdays in Buffalo Grove.

It looks like it may start to take place in a few weeks. I will post more info when I get it.

Re: OLY in Illinois

I have wanted to get some OLY work in over there for a while. I have talked to Mike a few times, just didn't put any times together. Saturday afternoons and Sunday are best for me.

I'm interested.

And I would probably have a few guys here interested. Really it's in our back yard.
