Meet the Person Behind Wulift
With over a decade of coaching experience, Coach Aileen Wu has helped thousands of athletes improve their Olympic lifts and racked up a list of her own impressive achievements in the fitness industry.
Coach Wu has lived up to her industry nickname “Kung Fu Panda,” as a seasoned Crossfit athlete since 2007, coaching 10 Crossfit Games athletes to the top, leading Crossfit certifications around the world, and breaking into the Olympic weightlifting world. Through personal training and seasoned lifting programming, Coach Wu has worked with multiple Master’s Weightlifters and an Olympic silver medalist, to name a few. She created WuLift to help you reach great heights and achieve your goals too.
Hi, I’m Olympic Weightlifting Coach Aileen Wu.
I did everything I was told. I ate, slept, and breathed Olympic Weightlifting. My life revolved around it. I trained 3 hours a day, 5 days a week for years, and then would go home and binge-watch and study anything Olympic weightlifting related.
I gave 3000%, trained under the best coaches, and instead of PR-ing consistently and on top of the podium, I ended up severely injured (I couldn’t even bend my knees 2 inches) and dissatisfied with my Olympic lifts.
Because of how broken I was, I was forced to take time off from the sport that was my life.
It took me to a very dark place. In training mode, I was focused, purposeful, and committed to a clear goal. When I suddenly lost that due to injury, finding a new dedication felt insurmountable.
I had to do some soul searching. I asked myself why my body refused to lift the way I needed. Why was I working so hard for so little? Why were the weightlifting experts I needed using a “one-size-fits-all” approach that didn’t work?
That’s why I started WuLift. I became the coach I so badly needed.
We Set Your Olympic Lifts Apart
WuLift knows that every athlete has a different athletic background, goals, and life situation. We hold each athlete to their own, personalized standards, troubleshooting and tweaking little by little until one day they become a stronger, more consistent, and more confident weightlifter.
We have a deeper understanding of the critical elements of a good snatch and clean and jerk. We can watch you lift and see how every micromovement contributes to the whole and which one or two of those micromovements needs to be tweaked ever so slightly to uplevel the entire movement.
WuLift believes in a holistic, personalized approach to weightlifting that leans on best practices and an athlete’s needs. We’re here for the athletes who feel frustrated and depressed or have hit a plateau. We provide a path for you to get out of that mindset and discover how lifting can be beautiful, magical, and enhance your life.
