Default Olympic Lifting Seminar in Boston with Greg and Aimee

I just got back from Greg and Aimee's Seminar in Boston and I must say that I had a great time. The instruction was top-notch - detailed, thorough and well thought-out. The corrections I received on my lifts were very helpful. Also, it helped my understanding to listen to them give cues/corrections to the other participants. Also, even though there must were a good number of participants at the seminar, I felt I got a good amount of individual attention.

I highly recommend anybody close enough to get to an O-Lifting seminar with them to attend. Especially if you don't get an opportunity to work regularly with an O-lifting coach.

I almost forgot - the Crossfit Boston crew were incredibly gracious hosts and did a great job at organizing the whole affair!

I attended the seminar in Boston too and agree with the OP. I am quite new to the Olympic Lifts and the instruction that Greg and Aimee provided were perfect for me. All the demonstrations followed by hands on practice helped me tremendously -- especially my confidence. Thanks so much! I would and will recommend this to others.

Although I wasnt there this past weekend, I too attended a seminar with Greg and Aimee back in January and loved it. Their coaching was superb and has helped me grow and develop as an O-lifter, my sport of choice!

Yea, great seminar with a fun group. Greg knows his stuff and explains it with just the right amount of information. The progressions are perfect. He's pretty entertaining, too. Both Greg and Aimee were very helpful in quickly correcting form faults. I'm sure everyone felt they left as better weightlifters.

Neal and the CF Boston crew are first rate hosts.

I'm going to attend Greg and Aimee's seminar in the near future even if it means robbing a bank to pay for it.

I have no doubt it is completely top notch.
