The Agatsu Barbell certification over the weekend went very well. The coaches and some of our members got to spend the weekend learning how to move weight. Thanks to Willie and Pierre who did a great job instructing the course.
We’ve also had a lot of fun weightlifting with Rosie on Sunday afternoons over the past six weeks. Of course, I would love to ask Rosie to come in and instruct more classes and I hope she is willing to do this again. As we organized these classes and Coach Derek got ready for the Manitoba Open, the thought occurred to me that perhaps we should have our own weightlifting club, right here at CrossFit Winnipeg. Busy with all the other tasks associated with running the gym, I put the idea on the back burner for a while, but this weekend at our barbell certification Pierre Auge from CrossFit Ottawa and the Capital Weightlifting Club started the wheels turning again as we discussed how he has been able to do this at his gym.
So I’m throwing the idea out there: What do you think? If we had our very own weightlifting club as part of the Manitoba Weightlifting Association at CrossFit Winnipeg, would you join? How often would you come to the gym to work on your lifts if we offered regular class? Would you ever compete in a weightlifting meet? Do you think it would help your CrossFit? Should I order kilogram bumper plates?
