Southern California Weightlifting Club
Southern California Weightlifting Club was established in 2014 by Chris Amenta with one goal in mind: creating a positive and encouraging atmosphere for everyone interested in Olympic Weightlifting. SoCal Weightlifting is a community where individuals come together to improve their lives every single day. We create a motivating atmosphere that is conducive for success across all ages and levels of fitness.

What they're saying about us...
"Great gym for weightlifters... I knew when I moved to OC that I would join their gym. Staff knows what they're doing, and coaching is fantastic!" - Eric P. (March 2017)
"Chris and the other coaches are very knowledgable in the sport and have helped me to start fixing a lot of my bad habits I've picked up over the years." - Charles L. (December 2016)
"If you are looking to learn how to properly perform Olympic lifts... you MUST come into this gym" - Luke T. (January 2017)
"I have been lifting with this club for about 7 months now and previously did CrossFit for about 1.5 years. In my 7 months with SoCal I received better, more accurate and insightful ways on how to adjust and improve my technique than my 1.5 years at CrossFit" - Kayla K. (November 2)
"I was just a recent college grad who wanted to get into weightlifting and had no idea how the process worked. I called some big local weightlifting teams around Southern California and SoCal Weightlifting Club was the only one who called me back and not only gave me the information I needed, but graciously accepted me onto the team. Now I am headed to a U25 National Meet thanks to their help! And don't sweat it if you can't make it out there. They have a killer online program that allows me to train remotely from Riverside. I film all my lifts and send them to Chris and get immediate feedback. If you want to get stronger with a great group of people, this is your gym." - Matt O. (September 2016)
