Olympic Lifting Coming Soon!

Red Hills CrossFit is very pleased to announce our first ever Olympic Lifting Class! We will be running a 12 week program 3 days per week, which will culminate in the Red Hills Classic, our first ever In-House Olympic Weightlifting Meet. We will only be accepting 10 people into the program to make sure that each athlete gets the attention they deserve. Athletes who participate in the program will receive individual programming and accessory work in small group setting with individual attention. Athletes will also receive coaching for the meet, as well as free entry to the meet.

Class times will be 8:30-9:30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays and during open gym on saturdays from 10am-12pm.  We are looking for positive, encouraging, respectful and dedicated athletes who can commit to the full 12 week schedule. Each person will be following a similar program with adjustments made based on his or her strengths and weaknesses. Athletes should expect to make improvements in their strength, technique and consistency with both the snatch and clean and jerk, as well as the squat and other major lifts.

At the end of the 12 weeks, we will be hosting our own in-house competition, limited to only Red Hills CrossFit members. The competition will consist of athletes competing in weight classes and age groups in the snatch and the clean and jerk. Competitions like this are a great place to set PR’s or get a better understanding of how meets work. For most of you, this will be your first meet, and what better way than with your Red Hills family? The competition will be held as close to USA Weightlifting standards as possible, however athletes do not have to wear a singlet. For a full list of competition rules go to the USAW website. http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/Games2010_USAW_Rules_Nov_2008.pdf

For more information, we will have a meeting at the gym on March 18th, at 12:30pm, immediately after open gym. Everyone is welcome to come learn what the plan is and who we are looking for. Be sure to sign up quick and fill out the questionnaire on the facebook members page.
