Event 4 was The Marathon Row and it was 42,195 meters with a time cap of 4 hours. Athletes who did not complete the row in the time cap would be excluded from… Read more »
Sleep Matters You may have heard me talking lately about sleep being a main source of recovery. Sleep is like nutrition for the brain. If you are plateauing in your workouts, feeling foggy and tired, or needing caffeine in the afternoon – lack of structured sleep could be the culprit. Did you know that lack… Read more »
What are you capable of? “If you fell down on the ground, right here, right now, how long would it take you to get up?” As the first contact for most individuals reaching out to CrossFit Forward, I find myself in the perfect position to discuss CrossFit HQ’s methodologies, how it pertains to Forward’s approach,… Read more »
This week is going to be as awesome as last week! A few longer workouts, and a few movements we haven’t done in a while. Prepare yourself for some challenging cardio, too! I heard a lot of great feedback about the programming from last week, so I can finally let the cat out of the bag–we are now following COMPTRAIN programming!! I loved the Canadians, but I think this change is what’s best for us moving forward. If you haven’t heard of Comptrain, do a bit of background research and read up on Ben Bergeron. He trains a lot of Games athletes, including Katrin Davidsdottir. This does, however, mean that EVENTUALLY (not quite yet) we will be switching from Beyond the Whiteboard to SugarWOD. If you already have SugarWOD, we are listed under Forward Strength and Fitness.
Just a reminder to make sure you’re hydrating and that you’re coming to class properly fueled to work. If nutrition is something that you are struggling with, you’re not alone! We are here to help, and we have some Nutrition Services that can help you reach your goals. Shoot me a message if you want to chat about it!
I hope everyone is taking some time to enjoy summertime fun! Remember, we train in functional fitness to make us better at all types of physical activities. Let’s all try to branch out of our comfort zones and try something different! Kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, trail running… just the tip of the iceberg. Just don’t forget the sunscreen, guys!
Have a great week, and I will see you at the box!!
