Our History

Set up at the end of 2015 by an Olympic Weightlifter and coach, our goal is to provide Weightlifting information to CrossFitters & Olympic Lifters looking to get an edge in weightlifting. Lifting Times is about bringing technical knowledge, news and other useful material from experienced lifters and coaches to CrossFitters and people who are interested in the sport of Weightlifting. We started small but have now grown to be a fully comprehensive media for Olympic Lifting.

"Coaching at a few CrossFit boxes over the years has been very rewarding, but we wanted to communicate good specialist advice to a much wider audience and more effectively. This is so more and more people can enjoy weightlifting as, in our opinion it’s the best sport on earth!"

The editor, Josh Cox, has been competing in weightlifting for the past 10 years and coaching the past 5. He has represented Great Britain on 2 occasions in Poland and Austria, winning the latter. He is a former British record holder. He’s part of the senior team at St. Birinus Weightlifting Club in Didcot, one of the best clubs in the country. St Birinus has won the “UK National lifting league” for the past 3 consecutive years.
