Athletes have different recovery needs, time constraints and goals. Decades of research have shown progress is best achieved when following a carefully designed training cycle for adaptation. Praxis offers online programming for athletes in the real world. Our training philosophies are based on a combination of Russian and Bulgarian methods, however we use a wide range of periodization models based on the lifter’s ability to recover, skill, age, competition schedule and many other variables.

In-person Technical Training
Praxis offers an ongoing workshop where coach Debbie Millet offers her experienced coaching eye to teach and adjust technique for developing elite athletes. We use real wood platforms, competition bumper plates and rubber training plates, olympic barbells with great spin (Eleiko, Werksan, York, American Barbell), squat racks, jerk blocks, pull blocks and lots and lots of chalk.
Praxis exists to develop great weightlifters. Our lifters train as a team. While each lifter’s schedule, location and goals may be different, everyone benefits from the positive, encouraging atmosphere of sharing their training goals with fellow weightlifters. Head coach Debbie Millet is present for scheduled hours — providing feedback and instruction to every athlete. Each lifter is given a training program. Coach will make adjustments and corrections to technique and adjust the program as needed.
Athletes of many other sports receive instruction through Praxis to improve their performance in the Olympic lifts, develop their technique and build explosiveness, speed, and power. We are a private training workshop and although we do not accept drop ins, we encourage you to reach out by phone or email to access our program and get involved.
