Push Not Pull Seminar

Gym owners, do you VALUE the expertise of a National level Weightlifter and former CrossFIt Games level athlete? What about ten plus years of experience learning to and coaching all shapes, sizes and manner of athlete? Joe can make each claim and wants to share his experiences with you and your fitness community.

Time and money may also limit your ability to spend an entire weekend dedicated to a single seminar. With those points in mind Joe will work with you to develop an experience to fit the needs of your gym.  Past topics covered have included barbell cycling for the open, incorporating lower level gymnastics into a weightlifting program, Barbell Mobility 101, and rules and meet awareness for competing and running a sanctioned USAW meet.

Bottoms Up Introductory Weightlifting Course*

Coach Joe demonstrates that Weightlifting can be fun, functional, and a great way to get fit by focusing on a skill acquisition approach. He will teach what he believes to be the principal points of performance in order to safely and effectively practice Weightlifting’s three primary movements: the Snatch, Clean, and Jerk.
The principal points introduced include proper positioning, tempo, and force production. Athletes will be guided through these principals by learning the correct positions, practicing efficient bar paths, and doing skill transfer drills. Coach Joe communicates these principles through simple and flexible terms, providing athletes with a structure, not a way, for them to move dynamically with a barbell.

Weightlifting is truly a lifetime pursuit, safe, approachable, and, when trained properly, can lead to improved strength, body composition, bone density, and confidence. Everyone may not hope to break Weightlifting world records, but everyone will benefit from experiencing the principal teaching points taught in Coach Joe’s Introductory Weightlifting Course.

*The full introductory course can be broken up into short seminars focusing on one movement at a time.

Barbell Club Development

Developing the skills and confidence necessary to create a Weightlifting Community doesn’t happen in a single seminar or over a weekend. The Barbell Club Development Program offered by Joe’s Barbell is a comprehensive package of coaching services designed to pass along everything Joe believes to be the best coaching and business practices to operate a successful barbell club.

Designed to take your barbell club from zero to hero, this service, is an answer to the problems developing in an age of internet sharing and weekend certifications. Joe truly believes a lack of true mentorship has divided fitness communities and placed coaches further in the weeds.
The goal the Barbell Club Development program is to foster a likeminded Weightlifting community by building a knowledgeable and experienced Weightlifting staff. Building great programs takes time. Just as there is not a one size fits all diet and training program for every athlete, there is not a one size fits all process for building a successful barbell club within an existing fitness community.
Joe’s Barbell will help you develop an evaluation/introductory Weightlifting process for new and current members; help your community develop a Weightlifting programming perspective and language of your own; provide individual Weightlifting programming and consultation services for your staff; and work toward building a profitable niche within your existing fitness community.
Where the weekend certification and internet chatter fall short, Joe’s Barbell Club Development Program tightens up the slack. Checking out what the newest name on the scene has to say is great, but when the course is over your staff is only left with more questions. This service truly aims to develop and provide long term Weightlifting resources to your functional fitness community.
