    Hey new and current members. Just want to let you know Im available for Olympic lifting coaching sessions if you guys are interested.

    Kevin P.

    Also just a heads up that there are no coaches pics up on the site and my bio is missing though it was up for a hot minute. Thanks.

    I’ll put a plug in for Kev P, he’s been coaching me and it’s really helped. The Olympic lifts are highly technical and I found it hard to become proficient in a general CrossFit class or even just on my own. Kev has a great eye and can explain the movements, there were a couple of times where it felt like a light bulb went off in my head.
