Rest Day

Aimee Anaya reps us hard.

Check out the upcoming Catalyst Athletics Weightlifting Seminar this May in Boston!

Everyone from SBK who went out to their last seminar in Boston came back with a much greater appreciation and understanding of the lifts.  Greg and Aimee are a tremendous team who dissect the Snatch, Clean and Jerk from the floor up showing you not only how to effectively perform them, but also how to adjust them for your own body type. I Highly recommend checking this out if you want to take your lifts to the next level or if you're a coach interested in improving your ability to teach them.
If anyone's interested in going let us know so that we can coordinate travel and hotel arrangements ahead of time.
