With over 25 years of combined Coaching and competition experience you can be confident what you’re getting is the real deal.
I had not performed Olympic lifts for a long time before coming to Crossfit New Haven and found myself avoiding workouts that included snatch or overhead squats. I decided to do the beginner weightlifting program to review proper technique. The lifts are technical, but the coaches are great at providing feedback and manageable adjustments as you progress through the program. After just a few months I was excited for Olympic lifts to show up in CrossFit class WODs.
The New Haven Weightlifting Club is home to so many talented, hardworking, and kind athletes. As someone with minimal experience with Olympic weightlifting, I was welcomed by all of the members immediately and without judgment. I was able to get an extra pair of eyes at times and received feedback when working on unfamiliar movements. Each coach and many fellow athletes have provided me with great cues, drills, and relevant accessory work to improve my lifts and to feel more comfortable with the barbell
I really enjoyed the NHWLC beginners program. I was super nervous at first but the coaches were all very welcoming and attentive. I enjoyed the breakdown of the movements and the eventual build up to the bigger lifts. This made weightlifting less intimidating and more approachable for me. Now that I have completed the program, I have noticed myself paying more attention to my set up and form in class WODs. I have definitely made some progress in my lifts since completing the program and hope to attend more NHWLC sessions
