My name is Jennifer and I have been doing CrossFit for about a year. When I happened to go to theWednesday night barbell club at CrossFit Allstar, I had no idea I'd be meeting coach Chris Matute. Throughout my two week stay in Waimea, I was lucky enough to get to work out with coach Chris and he caused me to not only improve my form for most Olympic lifts, but change the way I look at them. Chris gave me a new perspective and a better understanding of lifts I have been doing for a year now. My form is perfect, and my weights are going nothing but up. In the time I spent with him, Chris zeroed in on my clean and jerk weight, after seeing my potential to improve. Chris taught me how to perform a better split jerk and in four days he had my footwork on my split almost perfect.I value my time at CrossFit Allstar, and I value Chris' instruction tremendously. I was able to walk away from there with more knowledge and better form and he and I only seriously worked together for a few days. Chris' teaching skills are impeccable and he has the ability to instruct and push his athletes in a manner I have not experienced anywhere else, even at home.Mahalo,Jennifer
If you were one of the 5 lucky ones to sign up for Chris Matute's 3 month long Barbell School it's a good thing, because it's FULL now. More people were asking to join it, but Chris was STRICT about keeping the quality of this program extremely high and did not want any more than 5 students, and I support him in this goal. If you'd like to learn from Chris Matute, who just set a 315# Clean & Jerk record at AllStar last week, you'll need to wait 3 months or until he coaches another session...
Coach Chris Matute 315# Clean & Jerk
Barbell School Students:
These 5 students will be going through rigorous study with Chris over the next 3 months and probably, as they find out even more about the complexities of the lifts, they will be better prepared to help our entire AllStar community.
