Olympic Lifting Seminar with Natalie Burgener by William Albritton
What a great weekend at CFA!. Folks traveled from all over the state to receive instruction from 2008 Olympian, Natalie Burgener. Saturday was spent learning proper technique on the snatch and clean & jerk. A few of the CFA coaches and athletes were lucky enough to get some personal coaching from Natalie on Friday. The best part is that all the CFA coaches including most of the new faces you will begin to see soon attended the seminar. We all look forwarded to bringing the instruction we learned this weekend to the CFA classes. Thanks to the groups from Ragin’ CrossFit, Crescent City CrossFit and CrossFit Lafayette who continue to support events at CFA! Outlaws’s BBQ provided an awesome Paleo lunch! As always, the support from the CFA community for this event was amazing! By supporting events like this (rather you attended or got in a 5am WOD to be out by the seminar start), you enable us to bring the world’s most talented athletes to Alexandria and spread their wealth of knowledge. We look forward to continuing to bring in the elite athletes and coaches from around the world and hope everyone will have a chance to attend one of these seminars.
Speaking of talented coaches, CFA is bringing in one of the top college swim coaches for a seminar on swim technique and performance. The event will be held on October 13. For more information or to register, click here.
