Giles Greenwood at CrossFit SE11 by Rachel

Last weekend I attended the Olympic lifting workshop with Giles Greenwood here in Vauxhall.

For most of us at CrossFit London, and indeed the larger CrossFit community, we are mere beginners in the world of Olympic lifting when compared to the athletes and coaches out there who devote their whole life to training in these lifts, perfecting the technique to execute the lifts effectively.

Therefore, any opportunity to train with an experienced coach is an opportunity I don’t want to pass up. Some of the drills Giles offered really clicked for me and so now begins the challenge to adapt them into my own training. If you want to be a good crossfitter then it is to your credit to expose yourself to lots of coaches, styles, techniques and environments and you’ll find a way through that works for you. Every experienced coach has something to offer.

We are really lucky that both CrossFit SE11 and CrossFit London offer a wide range of specialist workshops from gymnastics, running, mobility and Olympic lifting. My advice is get booked on to as many of these courses as possible – and get improving.
