Anyone who missed Ed Coan’s Powerlifting seminar on June 4 right here

“in our own backyard” will probably regret it for a long time.

The heat index was 112 degrees today in southwest Florida, and nobody cared if there was no air conditioning. We were there to learn from the incredible Ed Coan. Most of the people who came were extremely strong already, but they knew the value of expert coaching, they knew they could get even stronger.

I was very humbled to learning alongside some very accomplished Powerlifters, like Billy “The Tank” Tutko,  at this event.

The cool thing was, no one came across as rude or arrogant today. I was the oldest one there and one the smallest. Everyone was supportive and encouraging.

I learned a lot there and added over ten pounds to my deadlift PR. It was a very productive day!

PRs were being broken all over then place as Coach Coan worked one-on-one with each person there. His vast experience and knowledge let him pinpoint problem areas rapidly and teach how to fix each one.

Coach Coan really focused on the mental side of lifting as well as getting your whole body as strong as possible.

This very cool training event was held in a place that many would think was very unusual for Powerlifting, a CrossFit gym. However, this is no ordinary Crossfit gym.

CrossFit Havoc is run by Jim Denofa, and his lovely wife, Natasha.  Jim was a Powerlifter before he started CrossFit and he is good at both.

The take-home points are

  • never stop learning
  • never put limits on what you can do
  • train with Ed Coan if you ever get the chance
