CFH is proud to offer our members a regularly scheduled Barbell Class.
Programmed and primarily instructed by Coach Mitchell, a USAW Level 2 Advanced Sports Performance Coach, these classes develop a lifter's overall strength, as well as placing a heavy emphasis on the requisite technique, balance, and explosive power of the Snatch and Clean & Jerk.
Held three times each week, each session at different times of the day, our athletes have a convenient way to dial in their weightlifting technique regardless of their normal workout schedule. This class is the perfect supplement to regular WODs for those looking to increase their Oly lifts, or as a primary source of programming for those looking to compete in the world of weightlifting.
Regardless of skill level or ability, athletes will be challenged to grow their fitness in a fun, fast-paced atmosphere. Without using barbells (but pretty much anything else in the gym, including your own body, is fair game), athletes will get a great hour-long sweat session in, all while working to progress in body-awareness, stable movement patterns, and comfort within a free-weight environment.
Who can benefit from this program? Pretty much anyone:
People who enjoy a bootcamp-style workout
Athletes with imbalances from one side to another (lots of single-side movements and implements)
Experienced CrossFitters who want to get some work in on movements that will transfer very easily to the requisite coordination, stability, and mobility of the Olympic Lifts
