Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) November 23, 2013
Portland metro area’s premiere fitness gym, CrossFit Reflexion, announces new weightlifting certifications for its coaching staff. Coaches Jesse Udom and Erik Vorwerk are now USA-Weightlifting Level I Sport Performance certified.
The certification signifies the coaches as having the fundamental knowledge and theory behind complex technical movements such as the Clean & Jerk, Snatch, and their associated power versions.
When asked what this certification brings to the Reflexion facility, co-owner and regional competitor Shawn Wilson stated, “These certifications exemplify the depth of knowledge our coaches have in regards to the weightlifting movements. These movements are so explosive and technical in nature that it’s imperative athletes are taught how to move correctly from the beginning. Having coaches like Jesse and Erik at Reflexion allows everyone to step up their game but also ensures it’s done safely.”
Jesse Udom, a 2-time Junior National Competitor and 21-year weightlifting veteran, says, "I've always found great satisfaction in teaching weightlifting and seeing athletes improve. Having the certification will allow us to reach more people and guide them to more personal bests."
CrossFit Reflexion often incorporates weightlifting into their programming but also schedules classes dedicated specifically to the discipline. For more information and to sign up for a session with the Reflexion coaches visit http://www.crossfitreflexion.com.
