April Weightlifting Course and Coaching Update



Whilst our members are hard at work bettering themselves, improving their skills, movement patterns, strength and aerobic capacity, our coaches are also at work developing and honing their coaching skills.

These improvements have a direct effect on the standard and quality of the coaching we are able to offer, and we are excited to announce to you the following update.

Recently, both James Grogan and James St Leger achieved their Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Weightlifting, through the leading UK governing body, British Weight Lifting.

On top of this they also both achieved their tutor and assessor qualification as an accredited British Weight Lifting Tutor, enabling them to teach, coach and assess other coaches.

So what does this mean for our members?

– A continued high level of coaching, both within normal classes and the specific Olympic Lifting Classes that we run.
– A finer eye for detail within the coaching environment.
– Continued high level structured progressive programming.
– The paved planning for future Olympic Lifting Workshops, Seminars and courses.

Our current schedule has a dedicated Weightlifting Class on Tuesday evening at 8pm, and all day during normal classes on a Wednesday.

If you are not sure what Olympic Lifting entails, and would like to give it a go, we are running a 4 week weightlifting course starting on Sunday 17th April from 10:00am – 12:00pm –  The course is £79 for members of CrossFit Portishead and £99 for non-members.   During the course you will learn both the theory and practical side of Olympic lifting.
