CrossFit Hydraulic Coaches
Matt Longworth - Olympic Lifting
I am currently an Elementary Physical Education teacher at Eagle View Elementary and I have been crossfitting since 2010. I qualified for regionals in 2011, placed 5th at the BWI Mid-Atlantic Hopper in 2011, placed 3rd at Superfit Charlottesville in 2012, won a CrossFit Football competition in 2012, and won Team Superfit Richmond in 2013. I am also on the cover of the CrossFit book “Learning to Breathe Fire” written by J. C. Herz. When I first started CrossFit I fell in love with the community, the camaraderie, and the competition. There is nothing like it in the world, where everyone is rooting for each other to do their best! What I love about CrossFit is that it is for everyone. There isn’t a workout that cannot be adapted or modified to fit the athlete’s needs, whether it be an injury, ability, or just being new to the sport, all members can participate. The beauty about CrossFit is that everyone is there to better themselves and there is no prerequisite of experience to join! More recently, I have gotten much more into the sport of olympic weightlifting. I qualified for and participated in the 2016 Masters Olympic Weightlifting World Championships and that have obtained both my USAW Sports performance level 1 and level 2 certifications. This has allowed me to found and work as head coach of the Hydraulic Barbell Club. If you have any interest in olympic weightlifting, no matter your level, please feel free to reach out.
