Thanks to everyone that came out to the Olympic Weightlifting technique seminar that Meredith Hamill from Reebok CrossFit led yesterday!  Meredith was such a great instructor given her many years of competitive experience in Oly lifting, and I’m quite sure there were a number of personal breakthroughs yesterday that will allow us all to be much more confident in the Snatch and the Clean.  I personally learned a ton, and also felt very proud of you guys for being willing to get back to the basics and spend your Saturday morning with a barbell in your hands (and over your heads!)
Huge thanks again to the following folks that made yesterday possible:
– Meredith Hamill, Reebok CrossFit Affiliate Relationship Manager for the Mid-Atlantic region, for travelling up from Richmond, planning out a great day of drills, and in general sharing her outstanding experience with us!  Thanks also for the Reebok CrossFit sign – can’t wait to get that up on the wall!
– Sharon and Ted Lapkoff of CrossFit Frederick, who contributed so much to yesterday’s great time – putting the word out to members at CF Frederick who came out for the day, bringing food and drinks for lunch, and bringing their amazing positive personalities into the gym once again!
– Megan, Craig, and Sasha who made the trek out from CrossFit Frederick, adding a great new dynamic to the day’s events and displaying some outstanding form!
– Finally, to all the members of CFKI that made it out for the morning.  I really appreciate you always putting forth the great effort that you do to continuously improve!
I hope everyone had as great of a time as I did, and to those from Frederick – you’re welcome back anytime!
