We love lifting and our HookGrip Oly Club shows it. We have a dedicated weekly class 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 Sunday at 3pm with Coach Vinny Buttitta.
Coach Vinny began CrossFit in 2010. He was living in Canada playing junior hockey. His father owned a gym, and Vinny helped him test out new CrossFit workouts. He then went on to pursue collegiate hockey. After completing his
hockey career, he went to finish his biology degree at CSU. Vinny then began looking for a competitive outlet. He stumbled upon CrossFit when he accidentally signed up for the wrong event at the Arnold Classic! Since
then his biggest goal has been to make it to the CrossFit Games. Vinny competed at Regionals in 2014, 2016, and 2017. He has competed at Wodapalooza multiple times as an individual and with a team. He has been to the Granite Games as an individual 3 times.
Additionally, Vinny competes in the 81 kg weight class in weightlifting. Vinny is also a technician at Great Northern Water.
So if you are struggling with you Olympic lifts, Coach Vinny can help! He has a gift for coaching all levels of athletes! If you are looking to climb that leaderboard or just looking to lift correctly, Buttitta has the skills to help you reach your goals and achieve your best.
