OLY Cert with Burgener or Josh Everett - which would you attend?

Which would you go to?

An OLY Cert with Burgener and Staff

or

An OLY Cert with Josh Everett, Stephane Rochet and Shane Hamman


I imagine they would both be very similar certs yet different in their own unique ways :-)

Re: OLY Cert with Burgener or Josh Everett - which would you attend?

My first option would be to find a legitimate olympic lifting coach and spend your money with him. I know Oly certs run you about $500. You can probably get five or six 1.5 hour or longer PT sessions with a legitimate coach over the period of two months for the same amount of money. You really think you are going to absorb everything you need to know about Oly lifting in 2 days.

My second, option would be Greg Everett's seminar. He has the best support materials, book, dvd, website, forum, etc.

My third option if your mind is already set on one of the above seminars is go to the cheapest.

No sure where I can get coached around here? Maybe in Detroit over the border?

No Greg Everett seminar locally I can attend

Third - both cost the same

:-)

Thanks for the tips!

Re: OLY Cert with Burgener or Josh Everett - which would you attend?

The short answer is Coach B for sure!
We will be teaching coach b's material exaclty how he wants it taught. Stephane & I have been athletes of and or coaching with Coach B for about 10 years... Shane's resume speaks for itself... either way you'll be getting excellent instruction.
All of Coach's cert teams will be awesome... however Mike Burgener is a legendary coach and an even better human being... any chance you have to spend time with the man you should take it.

Cool.
It actually looks like it might come down to timing and your cert may be the one that fits my schedule.

Thanks for the response Josh.

Josh Everett=class act individual or as the old timers say here in the south "he's good people". Granted I don't personally know Mr. Everett, but in today's world of "me first", his prior comment on this thread more than validates my point. Thanks Josh, it might seem simple or stupid, but you made my day man. And I agree, Coach B is awesome!

Go to both! Josh and Stephane are awesome, and obviously Coach B is awesome as well. No question that you'll learn a ton from Josh and Stephane.
