Stuck In A Rut?

Get 1-on-1 attention to shatter through plateaus. Olympic Weightlifting coaching with Mona Pretorius de Lacey 

"I'll Be An Old Man By The Time I Get These Lifts Down..."

This is what I heard from avid Olympic Weightlifter Jamie. Maybe you can relate... Here's his story.

"I started Oly Lifting a few months back, about 4 to be precise. I really like Oly Lifting but I must admit I am not the most athletic when it comes to picking up really physical stuff quickly.

The gym I train at is actually an Oly Gym so this helps but the trainer there that is supposed to be training me doesn't seem too interested in me (or at least training me thoroughly).

Every once in a while I will ask him to watch and critique a lift and he will only give one or two word answers like 'More Shrug' or 'Faster Snatch' then go and make a phone call for 15 min.

I haven't made as much progress as I would have liked to in these 4 months and when I express this concern to my coach he tells me it takes time to get the technique right but I feel at the rate I'm going I'll be an old man by the time I get these lifts down."

Unfortunately, many coaches don't have your best interests at heart. They're looking for physically gifted guys and girls that they can attach themselves too to bring their coaching levels up.

Don't give up because of that guy.

Let me give you the coaching and attention you need and deserve when paying a professional for their services and turn around your lifting and destroy this rut. 

What My Athletes Say

Dr. Meghan Faulkner

I have always loved Mona’s positive and passionate approach to coaching. She is incredibly detail-oriented, patient and encouraging. I have made HUGE progress working with her in my technique and strength.

Elijah Rumfelt

Texas, USA

Within the first year of her coaching I qualified for the 2018 U.S. Youth National Championships and placed 7th in the 13 and under 44 kg weight class. Mona has a very high knowledge of the sport and is able to explain complex concepts in a way that I can easily understand. In January 2020 I competed at the Texas Championships and not only won the gold medal but also set three state records in the process. I am now the Youth National Champion in 2022."
