Kevin Jenkins

Olympic Lifting Coach

Bio

Introduction 

I began my fitness journey like many high school boys with bench pressing, squatting with terrible form, and of course arm day everyday. As I became older, my passion for fitness grew greater. I began diving into how to program as well as learn proper techniques for lifting weights. 

Education/Powerlifting Experience 

 I attended Augsburg university where I received my bachelors in kinesiology as well as a passion for powerlifting. After graduation I moved on to focusing solely on my powerlifting career. During this time I became a national record holder as well as placing in the top 10 at USAPL raw nationals. 

Olympic weightlifting 

 I have been coaching Olympic weightlifting for several years. In that time, I have found it to be one of the most rewarding and challenging experiences of my life. It has taught me not only how to be a better athlete, but a better coach as well. It has taught me patience and training methods I would never have learned otherwise. 

Crossfit Southpaw

I am beyond excited to begin a new journey with all of you and experience the community that is here. If you have ever done an Olympic weightlifting movement, don’t let that be a deterrent on whether or not you come. I love coaching all skill levels and will be more than willing to help in anyway possible. I am here to make you all the strongest versions of yourself and maybe along the way hit a few personal records.
