EXTRA WORK
Going forward, we will be taking a different approach with our competitor programming. We want the programming to be all inclusive and align with general classes as much as possible while providing avenues for everyone in the gym to put in EXTRA WORK outside of classes to get better.

Instead of having a different program altogether, we will be adding in EXTRA WORK. Class WODs may have more challenging options for Advanced athletes but the general WOD layout will remain the same for both competitors and general CrossFit. As much or as little EXTRA WORK can be done as each athlete desires and/or is capable of given their specific goals and lifestyle.

Our main goal in doing so is to stay cohesive as a community, while providing an opportunity to everyone to put in EXTRA WORK to get better on their own time/schedule.

Athletes that are responsible enough to put in EXTRA WORK before the start of the WOD and also are able to start the general class WOD are welcome to do so.

Please note this does not mean lying around on a foam roller for 30 mins and then jumping in for class WOD. An appropriate warm up will be required by all athletes and a Coach may use their own discretion in allowing an athlete to jump in to class.

This also means respecting the class and not being loud and obnoxious with slamming of weights during this time.

Additionally, this time also will not be lead or coached always but coaches will check in. If this is something that you struggle with you should stick to the full general class warm up and preform any EXTRA WORK after class.

EXTRA WORK will be written out on the floater board at the beginning of each week and posted throughout the Competitor blog as well as posted on the floater board in the Competitor wing.  Extra work will consists of Strength, Gymnastics and Conditioning work. Please choose wisely and be sure to address your weaknesses whenever possible.
