[/caption] As of Nov. 5, registration is full. We will be running another session early in the New Year. Dates and times have not been set, but please email Info@Functional Fitness204.com if you are interested. Functional Fitness 204 will be presenting a five-session clinic on Olympic weightlifting led by top regional competitor and outstanding lifter Tyson Takasaki. Olympic lifting is fun, and it’s also key to success in Functional Fitness competition. Tyson’s aim is to help set yourself up for success in the New Year, whether you want to compete in Functional Fitness or Oly meets or you just want to get better with the barbell. The clinic will start Nov. 10 and end Dec. 8, and all sessions will take place on Saturday afternoons at 12:30 p.m. at 483 Berry St. All sessions will be 90 minutes. This clinic is for intermediate to advanced Functional Fitness lifters, and you should have some experience with the Olympic lifts. This course will cover more advanced technique with an aim of dramatically increasing your understanding of the quick lifts and giving you the tools to improve your numbers on the snatch and clean and jerk. The sessions will be hands-on with lots of time on the platform, so plan to lift in each session.
