CrossFit Leeds Barbell Club

We are very pleased to welcome Yousef Ziu as the new Head Coach of the CrossFit Leeds Barbell Club. We have some exciting plans ahead for the development and growth of the CrossFit Leeds Barbell Club and all it's member athletes which we will be revealing over the next week.

 

Yousef moved to Leeds from London in 2008 to study Sport & Exercise Science at Leeds Metropolitan University and began his career in strength & conditioning in 2010 working with a variety of university sports teams. He also delivered strength and conditioning for TASS (Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme) athletes from a range of sports including wheelchair basketball and goal ball.

 

In 2013 Yousef established and began coaching at Leeds City Weightlifting Club. Under Yousef's coaching, the club has grown and produced success both regionally and nationally. The club has had multiple Northern champions and at the 2015 British Youth Championships one of his female athletes took the silver medal at just 15 years old. Yousef went on to produce 3 medaling athletes at the British Senior Weightlifting Championships in 2015.

 

Since July 2013 Yousef has held the position of Regional Talent Development Coach for the North of England with British Weightlifting. This role consists of leading the delivery of both technical teaching and Strength and Conditioning education at English and Great Britain Talent Development levels and also coaching the Youth and Olympic Development camps. Yousef also works as a tutor delivering courses for British Weightlifting.

 

If you're keen to get involved in the Barbell Club, membership is just £15 per month for CrossFit Leeds/The Forge members or £50 a month as a stand alone membership. Membership gives you access to an extra 36 hours per month of coached classes that focus on developing your technique and competency in the Olympic lifts (Snatch, Clean and Jerk), while also significantly improving your strength, power and mobility which translates heavily to improved CrossFit performance. Please speak to one of the coaches for more information or you can sign up directly via your Team Up account.

 

You can check out Yousef's profile along with all of our other coaches on the Coaches page of our website.
