In CrossFit, many workouts involve an Olympic weightlifting movement, so learning proper technique is essential to making consistent progress and keeping you safe and healthy.
Crossfit Fortis is pleased to welcome back the Orleans Weightlifting Club (OWC) to bring a comprehensive Olympic weightlifting program to the Orleans area for everyone.
On June 3rd 2018, we are hosting an Olympic weightlifting clinic focusing on the Clean & Jerk. Led by one of the top Olympic weightlifting coaches in the area, François Gravelle, the Olympic weightlifting clinic is a great opportunity for CrossFitters to get introduced and work on one of the Olympic weightlifting movements, the Clean & Jerk. Assisting François during the clinic is OWC President and Founder, Pierre-Marc Dion. This clinic is delivered over a two and a half hour session in a very small group setting.
Description: 100% hands on, you will be performing drills the entire session. Detailed introduction and breakdown of the Clean & Jerk in a small group. Drills to help promote good technique that you can incorporate into your training after the clinic.
Cost is $60 plus tax or $100 if you want to do both this clinic and the Snatch one on April 22nd. Sign up at https://crossfitfortis.ca/membership/ or email firstname.lastname@example.org
