If there is Reggae music playing in Big Mountain Barbell, you are sure to find Dom somewhere inside. Dom is the resident Weightlifting expert and sport performance coach and spent several years coaching in the NCAA all around the country before moving to the private sector. You will often find Dom running agility and speed drills with speed skaters or youth athletes. He also runs an online programming business and his custom-made programs are designed to prepare his athletes for their competition or sport. His ability to truly connect with others and guide his athletes through perfecting their mental game is what separates him from so many other coaches. Dom’s favorite lift is the Clean & Jerk because it is a true test of that mental game.
“I learned early on that the body is the mind and the spirit as well. As a coach, I can have the most positive impact on human beings doing something I love,” says Dom when asked why he became a coach. When not lifting weights, Dominic Laface is most likely out enjoying nature with his dog or playing his bass guitar.
