I was fortunate enough to break into Diane’s busy schedule of kicking ass to have her work with me. We spent a couple hours working on my snatch technique.
I am not weightlifter. I like training it because I find it fun. I think it is great for athletes. So like anything I enjoy doing I want to get better at it. One way to get better is train with someone smarter and more better at it than you.
Diane runs FU BARBELL inside of San Francisco Crossfit. It was a pleasure of working with her. I found that her coaching ability was one that I really understood. A lot of time with a short session coaches will throw too much at you. Diane did a great job of focusing on one or two big picture items and tried to fix that. Her ability to translate what she wanted me to do into words that my dumb meat-head monkey brain could understand was also top notch.
The only issue I have is that I live 2,000 miles form where she is coaching and will only get to hangout and train occasionally with her. If you need help I suggest you give her a ring or email or smoke signal and get better.
