About Chris Wilkes
What people had to say about our last seminar:
I have known Coach Chris Wilkes for several years in the sport of Olympic style weightlifting. Chris has great knowledge of fundamentals, core development and technique progressions in the teaching of the snatch, clean, the jerk and all the fundamental exercises needed to become a proficient Olympic style weightlifter. coach Wilkes has produced several national and international weightlifters and truly is an inspiration to our sport. I highly recommend anyone who has the chance be coached and or trained by coach Chris Wilkes.

Attending the Olympic Lifting seminar at CrossFitRVA under the supervision of Coach Wilkes and his team was definitely an eventful experience. It brought together a group of individuals with a wide range of skills all looking to improve on their lifts or to improve on their teaching skills and it proved to be a day worth of accomplishment. Being in the presence of people with the same passion and drive enabled me to achieve 2 PR’s in a matter of 20 minutes, a body weight overhead squat (115 lbs) and a 145lb clean & jerk. The most memorable part of the day for me was getting the opportunity to watch the Wilkes team perform their amazingly heavy lifts in front of us, including a 415lb clean&jerk. There is no doubt that I will be attending another seminar in the future, big thanks to CrossFit RVA and Chris Wilkes/team for a trip well worth it!

The Chris Wilkes Olympic Lifting Seminar at CrossFit RVA was a great experience. I learned a lot, got some great hands-on experience under the guidance of not only Coach Wilkes but also 3 of his sons (who we also got to watch do some liftingÃ¢â‚¬â€AMAZING!). I am hoping/planning to get my CrossFit certification in Olympic lifting at some point in time & I am sure this seminar will help me be better prepared for that weekend. I highly recommend this to anyone whoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s even remotely interested in the O-lifts. Seriously, I drove roughly 600 miles round trip for the class, so if I say itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s worth it, I think that says all that needs to be said!
