"In the time I spent under the careful eye of Coach Bob Takano I was able to take my Olympic lifting from an intermediate to an advanced level. Coach Takano has been a national level coach and has the skills and education to elevate a lifters performance. From the day to day programming, to having him by my side as I placed 2nd nationally in 2011, Coach Takano never let me be satisfied and it helped me expect more of myself. If you are looking for the best of yourself, Coach Takano can help you achieve it!" -  Lindsey Valenzula
