The Oval is pleased to partner with Olympic Bronze medalist and presumed Gold Medalist Christine Girard, to offer a unique opportunity to train like an Olympian, with an Olympian.

Christine will be conducting this intensive one-day Olympic Weightlifting clinic, which is designed to help athletes of all levels increase their technical knowledge of the sport’s two competitive lifts – the snatch and the clean-and-jerk.

Through practical instruction and education, Christine (NCCP Level 2 Certified) will focus on:

  • Optimal warm up and stretching
  • Technique and technical coaching for the “snatch” and the “clean and jerk”
  • Rules and regulations of the sport, structure of competitions
  • Personalized, individual instruction
  • Sharing her experiences competing on the world stage

Participants will gain a concrete understanding of the sport and how Olympic Weightlifting training increases speed, strength and flexibility.   Participants will receive coaching tools that can be utilized in future workouts.
