Long time Coach’s Eye friend and ambassador Drew Dillon recently started a new education training program called Project Lift. The purpose? Educate athletes and coaches to help them achieve their goals through Olympic Lifting.
Drew has had a long career in Oly lifting. Starting out as an athlete, he trained and competed in Columbus, OH. As a coach he most recently used his skills at Columbus Weightlifting. He attended the 2012 Olympic Games In London with one of his athletes Holley Mangold. She is looking to share her knowledge in the community to help Project Lift athletes and coaches reach their goals.
Project lift focuses on more than just form and technique. It educates its subscribers about the holistic mindset one needed to achieve goals through olympic lifts. From training schedule and eating to form and technique, project lift is designed to make people better.
Drew describes Project Lift like this, “It’s not a cookie cutter formula. We do not deliver the same programming to each athlete and coach. It takes commitment on both sides and we’re committed to helping them reach their goals.”
Right now Project Lift is running a five gym beta test. Project Lift is inviting coaches from other gyms to come to the facility twice a month and apply coaching concepts that will help them improve. Drew explains his hypothesis this way, “The quickest way to become a better coach is to coach along side a better coach. Project lift will be the backbone for other gyms. Providing complex skills and programming in a non complex way.”
After the beta test, Project Lift will become a subscription service for coaches and athletes. Providing programming, remote coaching, and support for their clients. Right now the Project Lift facility boasts 20+ athletes, 20 coaches in beta, and 6 Project Lift coaches.
We’re excited to see what Project Lift will bring to the table. They’re using Coach’s Eye with their remote coaching solution. Who know’s what the future will bring. Congrats Drew, Holley, Chelsea and Project Lift!
