Alexandra LaChance is hands down the best weightlifting coach I have worked with and, being a coach myself, I have worked with quite a few! After 8 years of coaching and participating in CrossFit, I have developed a number of inefficient movement patterns that have really held me back in the olympic lifts. Working with Alex has helped me identify and break some of these bad habits in my pull, as well the receiving positions for the C+J and Snatch. Her technical proficiency has helped launch me into an uncharted level of athletic potential that my sub-optimal movement patterns have kept me from tapping into sooner. Great athletes don't automatically make great coaches, but Alex really is outstanding both in her athletic performance, but also in her ability to and effectively break down, teach, see, cue, and correct movement. Coaches need coaches too. Get you an Alex LaChance. You won't be disappointed.
Working with Alex was one of if not the best experience I have ever had being coached. She genuinely cares about her clients, has amazing knowledge and ability in olympic weightlifting, and most importantly, knows how to coach each client she works with to match their learning strengths- something that is rare and invaluable. I personally can not recommend her enough, today I can confidently say that I am substantially better at weightlifting and coaching thanks to my year with Alexandra LaChance.
October 2016 I started one on one training once a week with Alex to start learning more of the gymnastics side of Crossfit. 2 weeks into these sessions she had me doing kipping pull-ups! Exactly one month after that I was doing kipping handstand push-ups! Fast forward to February 2017 and I was able to do banded bar muscle ups on my way. All while in between working on butterfly pull-ups, t2b, and some barbell work. 2 weeks into training my self esteem went way up! I was finally happy with myself and watching what I thought my body was never capable of. Even though I don’t get the one on one training anymore, she still programs for me 3x a week. She’s been so supportive of me and my journey, as well as a motivator and friend. It’s awesome having a coach who actually enjoys watching you grow and succeed in your new victories! Alex is one of the best coaches to work with whether it’s for gymnastics, Crossfit, weightlifting, or simply just getting up and moving!
