We love lifting and our programs show it. We have dedicated two classes per week solely for Olympic Lifting (the Clean & Jerk and the Snatch). Several of our coaches are USAW certified as well as CrossFit Olympic Lifting certified. We recognize that these movements take skilled coaching and many hours of practice and for this reason we offer Oly classes to our members every Tuesday evening at 7 pm with Coach Kat Lee and every Saturday morning at 8:30 am with Coach Tom Karos.
Coach Kat has been lifting for Rubber City Weightlifting under Coach Dan Bell for 2.5 years and looking forward to many more! Lee is a two time Ohio State champion in the 58kg weight class, holds three state records and placed 9th in 2014 at the USW Weightlifting National Championships. Kat offers her excellent coaching skills to CFHG by coaching Olympic Lifting specific classes for all levels. She is highly interested in developing every single athlete and will help you tweak your lift technique.
Coach Tom loves to snatch – and snatch HEAVY! He is a CrossFitter through and through with a bent toward the Oly lifts. He is passionate in his coaching and loves carving out an hour on Saturday mornings to help CFHG members improve their technique or find a new max.
Be sure to attend one of our Oly classes. You’ll be glad you did next time you see “Isabel” posted on the whiteboard!
