RAISING THE BAR IN WEIGHTLIFTING

 

 

Takano Weightlifting is the premier training facility dedicated to the sport of weightlifting.  Inside a 5000+ sq ft. facility in Woodland Hills, we provide the highest quality and competition rated equipment along with the very best coaches in the sport.  We offer open gym access membership + coaching for Olympic Weightlifting, Powerlifting, and Strength & Conditioning for everyone. We also offer educational seminars for both athletes and coaches.

The recent explosion of interest in the sport of weightlifting and the performance of the snatch and clean & jerk has created an unmet demand for more and better training and coaching.  As a longtime weightlifting and strength and conditioning coach, writer and lecturer Bob Takano and Takano Athletics have decided to provide this expertise by opening a unique training facility solely dedicated to the training of weightlifting and education of coaches.  The Takano Weightlifting gym will make available for the first time to the general public the training and coaching methods previously available only to a narrow segment of the athletic community.  

Bob Takano - Owner / Head Coach

A longtime leader in the sport of weightlifting, and a five time member of the USA national team to the world championships.  Bob has coached four USA National champions, two National Record Holders, two Pan American Champions and an Olympian.  Over a forty-five year coaching career 35 of Bob’s lifters have qualified for the USA Nationals.
