This course is an absolute must for (personal) trainers who want to implement Olympic weightlifting in their training offerings. The technique of, inter alia, the snatch and clean & jerk is discussed and practiced in detail and is supported by means of a very detailed course book. What I most remember is that the training is provided by a trainer who acts out of passion for the sport and not from commercial interest.

To learn weight lifting as a sport I originally went to weightlifting club Milo where Remco as coach and as a fan of Olympic Weightlifting leads the club. If you want to teach others the Olympic lifts and their partial movements, which was my first goal, you need to master Olympic Weightlifting first yourself. The result was that during two years I drove each Friday from Emmen to Assen to be able to train under guidance of Remco.
As a trainer Remco can like no other, combine the theoretical with the practical. He can sometimes be long-winded, but I liked it because I wanted to learn as much possible!
If you want to learn everything about the weightlifting as a sport and learn a good technique, then with Remco Eenink you have come to the right place.

I have experienced it as very educational course where the technique is refined on a personal level with tips and critical feedback on movement patterns; a real eye-opener. Also, I now have a clear view of the function and the value of weightlifting within the whole context of sport. Weightlifting is – if technically correctly executed – an added value for each individual. It is a sport in itself, but also an indispensable support to improve performance in other specific sports.

hereby I want to thank you for your excellent course weightlifting level 1 and 2.
Why thank you. As a sports physiotherapist I have to deal every day with injuries. Particularly injuries caused by improper use of the body in sports situations. In my nearly 35 years of experience, it has become clear that the right attitude is crucial to achieve a correct movement. Often, within the many sports activities that we have, to this no attention is being paid by unfamiliarity and ignorance but unfortunately also negligence.
During the course, Olympic Weightlifting, which I attended this weekend, it became clear that the techniques seamlessly fit within an overall formation of the correct attitude in sporting activities. It is striking that the structure of the course is not focused on lifting as many kilos as possible, but is completely meant to learn to execute the lifts in balance with the right techniques. An real eye opener. In addition, the guidance as you stand for, and propagate is within the world of certified weightlifting apparently normal, but is ignored in many sporting situations. I am referring to the coordinated working towards a beautiful sport performance for the future. It is not for the short term and has a vision for the future. The course breathes transparency, responsibility and growth.
I hope you sports culture will play a larger role than is currently the case. In any case, you have an additional core supporter. Until the next course.
Tom Preijde (Sports Physiotherapist and Strength Trainer – Huizen)
Remco is someone with a lot of love for the sport of Olympic Weightlifting. His knowledge and experience are of high quality and based on years of experience. An important difference with other courses: No commercial bells and whistles!
Until next time Remco!

I have followed the course Olympic Weightlifting Level 1 & 2 at Milo Opleidingen from Remco Eenink. I must say he is really good and passioned about his work. He gives such good advice and makes you realize what to work on and how to work on certain techniques. It was an honour to have been tought by somebody who is really good at his work field.
In order to make a good training plan it is important to understand the structure of a training plan and the impact of the training on the athlete. A good training plan takes into account the development of strength and technique. Upon completion of the course Olympic Weightlifting coach level 3 and 4 the most important thing that we have learned is to be able to create training programs that are inclusive and bring the athlete to his own top level without burning out or exhausting yourself in the process. During the course we learned to make the best plan for all types of athletes, including high performance athletes and masters. Once you understand the system you can train each athlete, including yourself or your workout buddy. I am 100 percent satisfied with the course. The level is high and everything is understandable. Remco himself is an experienced teacher with a lot of patience. Highly recommendable therefore.
now I have absolved weight lifting course, Level 3. This course is a follow up to the highly acclaimed course level 1-2.
In the last course you teach us how the athlete goes through a responsible development through periodization of the training.
The aim was to provide insight into the structure to a complete training plan. You enthusiastic manner of presentation was also marked by your expertise and experience.
The recognition of periodization to a balanced training plan has become clear in the course of these days. The specific use of the parameters could also be found in each (weekly) training plan.
In short, it was again extremely enlightening and in contrast to the preparation of a training plan through a 1 RM-determination.
With sporty greetings.
Tom Preijde, CSCS
