Performance vs. Fitness – New Programming Layout!
IN A EFFORT TO IMPROVE THE GYM AND RESULTS, YOU WILL BEGIN TO SEE A FEW NEW CHANGES TO THE PROGRAMMING,
We are switching to a new template for programming and will be posting two workouts each day where applicable. The two groups are called PERFORMANCE and FITNESS. Read below to understand what each one means and how this pertains to you. This change will take the place of our Elements classes. Instead of only have 2 days a week to help with technique and movement patters, now each class will have prescribed options. If you are starting under FITNESS, and are considering jumping into the PERFORMANCE program ask a Coach to make sure you are a good fit for the program!
The goal of this switch is to provide the best programming for the various kinds of athletes in the gym. Those who are in the gym for general health and fitness, and those who have the goal of competing and taking CrossFit to the next level.
PERFORMANCE – If you are training in CrossFit for sport. If you are in this program, you have mastered all of the basic CrossFit moves, have sufficient strength numbers, and have efficient form in the Olympic lifts. This program will involve more technical movements, as well as heavier loads in workouts when needed.
THE FOLLOWING MOVEMENTS MUST BE MASTERED TO BE IN PERFORMANCE:
Strict Pullups, Chest to Bar Pullups, Ring Dips, HSPU with no deficit, Squat Clean, Squat Snatch, OHS, Snatch Balance, Pistols, Rope Climbs, T2B, Double Unders, KB Snatch,
FITNESS- You are either new to CrossFit or you just CrossFit for general health and fitness, you don’t plan to compete in any competitions(at this time), and are still working to master and Rx normal programmed workouts. This program will build a general work capacity in the foundations of CrossFit. Don’t worry, just because your not going to compete at the crossfit games, doesn’t mean its going to be easy ! It will be less technical, but simplicity is just as good an effective. You will still be pushed, and challenged as normal. All athletes coming out of Foundations or who have been CrossFitting for less then 6 months will required to stick the Fitness programming.
Some day’s the workouts will be the same, so if you don’t see two workouts specified, assume that everyone is doing the same workout for that day. Some days it may just be small changes, other days it could be completely different workouts. This small change will help each individual athlete achieve their specific goals and get the very best out of each class. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact Coach Shannon.
