How would I go about finding a local gym which focuses on O lifts? I've checked the Yellow Pages but they don't really indicate what kind of gym it is. And of course even if they have O lift equipment, the coaching isn't necessarily going to be good.

I was thinking of trying USA Weightlifting. Any other thoughts?

Hi Elliot,

This might help (from the USA Weightlifting site):
http://www.msbn.tv/usavision/uploadedimages/usa_weightlifting/pdf/usaw_club_and_ college_directory.pdf

Looks like you have Artie Dreschler in your neck of the woods - must be nice!

Hope this helps,

Ryan

Thanks, guys. I actually live out in CT but work in NYC. Wilton is perfect. I don't see Gary on the USA Weightlifting list. How could I reach him?

Thanks!

Eliot, try googling "east coast gold" and look at the NY satellites. Each will feature gyms that support OLY lifting...

Hope this helps...
