One of our new commitments at Thermal is bringing you high level seminars to help you achieve your fitness goals.   CrossFit Thermal is excited to announce our first ever weight-lifting seminar!  Coach Jim Rutter will lead a 2 hour practical hands on seminar seminar right here at Thermal on Sunday November 18th at 10:00am.

Coach Rutter has over a decade of competing in Olympic weightlifting at the national and international level. He has qualified for and lifted in the American Open, US Senior Nationals, the Arnold Classic, and the 2008 World Masters Championships in Kefalonia, Greece, where he placed third. During 2005, Jim competed for a Czech weightlifting team, where he trained under former Czech Republic Men’s National coach Karel Duspiva.

Jim currently owns and coaches at Philadelphia Barbell Club, where he trains some of the area’s top lifters.

The goal of this seminar is to give the beginning or intermediate weightlifter a comprehensive overview of each lift. Snatch portion consists of a seven stage progression of drills and positional work designed to introduce lifters to the proper positions and mechanics of the snatch. Clean and jerk portion breaks down the clean into five progressions, focused primarily on proper development of force. The split jerk segment uses six steps to teach athletes how to execute that movement.

Come and spend 2 hours dialing in some of the most important techniques that we use on a day to day basis.
