Just had my first OLY lifting instruction last night at Sports performance in Buffalo Grove ( 6 OLY platforms). Mike Gattone and Roger Nielsen are two great coaches!!

They are somewhat familiar with Crossfit and interested in doing some sort of get together to go over OLY lifts with the CrossFit community. I will know more when I see them next week.

In the mean time I wanted to make everyone aware of a power clinic they have going on Saturday June 4 in Naperville Here is a link to there site
http://www.wcsrehab.com/athlete_update.aspx

I wish I could be there but I will be on my honeymoon. If you contact him let him know you are from CrossFit so he knows there are people from here interested.

Mike Gattone is a superguy! Tell him I said "hello" you can give him a smack on the kisser, too, if you'd like! :kiss: LOL

Lucky for you Larry!!! Take some good notes for me as I will be in the treking through southern Mexico that weekend. Hope to see you at the CrossFit meeting on 5/14.

Coach Burgener, Yes I am very glad I found these two guys. With luck they will be a full time part of our CrossFit family. I will keep working on them.

LArry,

Heard you signed up for the workshop, I am very jealous! I talk to Mike Gattone and he is open to letting us use his place some Saturday this summer for a CrossFit meeting. He has a great facility and has 6 platforms. I will work with him to set something up when I get back from my honeymoon.

Thank you for making the pdf available, guys.

I' ll be sure to swing by Naperville for a refresher course when I come to Chicago (currently stuck in France where OLY instruction is about as common as a good pumpkin pie).

I notice the seminar only covers the power varieties of the two exercises. Is that because some folks coming in won't have the requisite flexility for full snatches & cleans, or some other reason?

Stephen,

I did hear from Coach Gattone that this seminar was being put together primarily for High School coach's and students. But of course the coach would be the best source for this question.

I wish I could be there!!
