How is this seminar different than attending regular class? 

In class, we only have a short amount of time to cover basics on the movements seen in the workout. In this seminar, we will be going over the technique in depth. Additionally the focus of this seminar is diagnosing technique impairments as it relates to neuromuscular recruitment. Coach Melissa, Dr. Jocelyn, and Dr. Jordan put their heads together to help you learn top down and bottom up strategies that will transform your olympic lifts. 


Can I attend the seminar if I am pregnant?

As long as you are cleared to exercise, you can attend the seminar if you are pregnant. In fact, we encourage it!


Is this seminar different than going to a class specific for OLY?

Yes. The breakout drills led by Dr. Jocelyn and Dr. Jordan are drills you will not see during your OLY class but they will help you make the most of each OLY class. 


I recently had a baby. Am I safe to attend the seminar?

If you were cleared to return to exercise by your birth team, yes. If you have not had your postpartum follow up yet, contact Dr. Jocelyn via email ( or text (480-980-0367) before signing up.


I can’t attend the in-person seminar. Will it be recorded? 

This seminar will not be recorded. Let us know so we can contact you when we have a recorded version available!

I am a member at Back Alley Fitness. Can I pay for the seminar through Wodify?
