Re: invitations to mikes gym

I am just starting a starting strength cycle and I am very novice about oly lifts. Not sure should hold off a little bit so I could benefit more from the experience.

Trust me, if we didn't embarrass my ourselves, you won't. Coach B has trained the novice to the pro... but from what I can tell, his teaching is the same. If you have the opportunity to give him a visit, do not pass it up.

And... if you're a novice, who better than to give you a solid foundation in Oly lifts than Coach B?

Michael,

Don't screw yourself out of this opportunity for that reason! I just started Crossfit last July and I had never performed Oly lifts either. Watched some videos online and took it from there.

A friend and I ( Bob Guere, posted above ) visited Mike's Gym on Tuesday of this week and we learned a TON. The man is just the best teacher no matter what your skill level. Think about it, he just retired from teaching high school kids so he has some experience with the inexperienced. Do yourself a favor and take advantage of this opportunity, you won't be sorry.

Good luck, and share your experience when you're done.

Re: invitations to mikes gym

Just wanted to publicly thank Coach Burgener for helping us out today. My wife, a couple friends, and myself went down to Coach Burgener's today and he gave us a couple hours of incredible coaching. I learned more than I could have imagined.
Thanks again Coach, we'll definitely be back...

Re: invitations to mikes gym

I finally made it up there today with my friend Jay who had been before. It was pretty much my first time ever working on the snatch and I learned a crap load. Was great to meet Coach, can't wait to go back.
