I am being asked by more and more people ‘what are those people doing in the corner?’ Normally I just say ‘making a mess’ but it seems its time to give a little more information.
As some of you know, we run the classes for all and this unlimited stuff?! What do I mean?You have the class programming, fun fitness with the group, I program the fundamental movements so you can all be safe while learning the foundations. You may have noticed that we do not have many Snatches, Muscle ups or heavy weighted movements in WOD’s, so we are all safe. After a full day at work, sometimes you just want to turn the brain off and go for it….
After a while you may want to have those complicated movements included in the WOD’s and be challenged. Perhaps you would like to compete or just get some time to work on that first Muscle up. This is where the competitors programming (unlimited) comes in…
The programming considers that you can perform the basic movements correctly and you understand your own limits. The sessions are not coached - you are asked to video movements and upload to a group if you aren't sure how to perform the movements. We run extra Sunday sessions to go through movements.
There is a mandatory section, this must be completed. Then you have some choices to make for the next part, to ensure you hit those weaknesses. The sessions are around 1.5 hours long and are more intense than the class sessions. The benefit is you have more time to practice the lifts (Snatch and Clean& jerks) etc. In turn speeding up your progress.
How would you get started?… Simple, ask for a pre-session. I will have a session with you to go through some basic movements. First we want to check you will be safe and secondly I need to know your weights to prepare your programming. The first month gives you a chance to start slowly with short sessions, giving time to develop the basic movements before starting with similar level programming above.
