Lift Your Fitness Journey at SymbiosFIT!

Introducing Greenlight Weightlifting with Brandon Duffner

Keeping a good pace on the road ahead requires strength and endurance. Yet many of us lack the healthy fitness needed to enjoy life fully.

Is the best version of yourself sitting at a red light, unsure which direction will lead to results, or do you see the light changing but lack the motivation to proceed?

Fortunately, SymbiosFIT has a path paved for your success with our newest addition, Brandon Duffner. As a renowned national-level coach, Brandon will elevate your fitness journey through the art of Olympic weightlifting, personal training, and a youth strength and weightlifting program.

The Symbiotic Fusion of Strength Training and Health

At SymbiosFIT, you’re not just signing up for a workout regimen but becoming part of a supportive and empowering community. Our coaches and club members lift each other as they train, learn, and grow together. The journey isn’t just about physical gains; it’s also about the mental, social, and emotional strength you build along the way to:

  • Build coordination to help you advance in different sports.
  • Increase endurance for more energy.
  • Be part of a team that adds accountability and community.
  • Decrease your risk of injury by adding muscle to support joints.
  • Reap the benefits in your mood, sleep, and confidence.
  • Look and feel your best as muscle burns additional calories, even while resting.

Greenlight Weightlifting

Greenlight Weightlifting, with Brandon’s expert guidance, is an official USAW club for all ages and levels. Whether you’re an advanced weightlifter or a complete beginner, Greenlight Weightlifting is where age is just a number, as the real focus is on strength, mobility, coordination, timing, and speed.

The Youth Strength and Weightlifting Program develops foundational strength for all sports in the young minds of tomorrow. This program covers a spectrum of movements, from bodyweight exercises to kettlebells, dumbbells, barbells, plyometrics, and mobility work. These young athletes, aged 13 to 18 (with consideration for younger talents), have the chance to learn, compete, and even travel.

Crafting Champions On and Off the Platform

One of the most exciting aspects of Greenlight Weightlifting is the opportunity to learn Olympic weightlifting. At SymbiosFIT, this is more than just a sport; it is complete fitness working your body and mind in perfect harmony as you master two competitive movements: the snatch and the clean and jerk. If you choose this path, you’ll have the chance to showcase your progress at local, national, or even international levels. Whether aiming for personal excellence or dreaming of the podium, we provide the platform to reach your aspirations from start to finish.
