I decided on an Olympic lifting course. Now I just have to find the money to pay for it.

  • Font size: Larger Smaller

In my last post I was undecided about where I was going to get the Olympic lifts training I so desperately need. If you read that post, then you know that one of my main concerns is doing the lifts correctly, to avoid injury. Injury leads to loss of training, and honestly my body doesn’t need any more down time.

In my opinion I need one on one instruction, something I don’t think I’d get with a larger class. As I stated in the last post I came up with a couple top contenders, CrossFit classes offered through the main site and Waxman’s gym.

 

So I e-mailed Waxman’s gym and got an immediate response back from Shawn Waxman. He sent me information about the seminars and his phone number if I had any further questions.

 

I waited a few days, looked up some other options in the SoCal area then made a call to Shawn. I asked a bunch of questions and really liked the responses I got. He said his classes are small, and that he provides a lot of individual instruction on the lifts. I guess the Essentials class is a little larger with around fifteen or so participants, but the Mastery class is limited in size to ten or less.

Shawn seemed pretty down to earth and was more than happy to answer all of my questions, and there were a bunch. I was still undecided on Waxman’s or CrossFit when I got a comment on my last article that helped make my decision that much easier. The comment didn’t knock CrossFit’s classes, but the poster explained their personal experience and thoughts on the CrossFit class. I then took all things into consideration and decided on Waxman’s gym.

 

My wife is totally on board, so now I need to figure out how to pay for the class. While it is considerably cheaper than the courses offered on the CrossFit main site, it will still set me back over three hundred bucks to attend both the Essentials and Mastery Classes.

 

I had planned on using my tax refund, but I doubt that’s happening since a huge branch crushed our roof during a recent storm and my insurance deductible is a grand, thus reducing my ability to use those funds.

 

I’m hoping to attend his next set of classes in May and with any luck I’ll be able to put the cash together by then.

 

See you in the hills.
