8/2/13 WOD

I have heard a few grumblings about the new programming we will start to implement on Monday. I would like to explain why this will be better for everyone. Everyone that comes to crossfit, comes for a different reason. Each athlete has different needs, and I am finding that it is impossible to make a generic program that is going to be beneficial for each person. I feel like this is going to help each athlete meet their specific needs and goals better. This is not a demotion for many of you. Some have been coming to class for months or even years and just seem satisfied with where they are at. They come into class and grab the same bar with the same weight on each side no matter if the wod is deadlifts, cleans, or shoulder presses. Some refuse to be uncomfortable, and I’m tired of watching people just go through the motions, and never progressing or working toward anything specific. Each group comes with a set of attainable goals. These specific goals will help each athlete have something to work towards, making themselves look and feel better. Athletes in the strength or drive groups are not better than function athletes, just different goals. No one is better than anyone else. We all love fitness, that’s why we come to class.

No doubt, there is going to be a learning curve for us all. Hang with me on this, we will all get better, have even better results , and come to love crossfit even more.

  1. This is the core of Crossfit. If you read up on it’s origin, this is how it was meant to be taught. Many of the founders were disappointed by the “1 size fits all” workouts they were seeing across several boxes. I welcome the new programming and look forward to improving my overall strength!
