Week of February 23, 2020

Crossfit Oakdale alum Sarah Lindblom has qualified for US Weightlifting Nationals in April, 2020! Anyone that knows Sarah even a little, knows she is an incredibly hard worker, as well as a bright, fun person. It will be so exciting to see her shines as she takes the platform in Florida.

The timing of Sarah’s qualification for Nationals is awesome! We are going to be focusing on the Olympic lifts in the coming weeks, especially with the Girls Gone RX Oly-Open that will start on Friday at 6:30pm. Getting better at the Olympic lifts requires so much – persistence, courage, attention to detail, besides being strong, fast and flexible.

Sarah’s Oly Coach, Charles Shipman, who also qualified for Nationals, will be teaching an Olympic Lifting Seminar on Sunday, March 15th. Longtime friend of CFO and former member of California Strength , Uncle Charles has many a story about Glenn Pendlay and Donnie Shankle peppered throughout his coaching of the Olympic lifts, the Snatch and the Clean and Jerk.

The seminar will run from 9am to 4pm with a break for lunch. $75 a person for this day full of drills to refine your lifting technique. I have been to lifting seminars from various coaches. At one seminar, the coach texted the whole time. It can be boring, and sometimes mean spirited towards CrossFit or Jerry Seinfeld – ask me about that. Uncle Charles keeps it fun and fast paced.

This will be a fundraiser for both Sarah and Charles to help them out in getting to Nationals.
