Bring on the new month. Set some goals and get ready to crush it.

In other words listen to your coach when they try to correct your form or they tell you to lighten the load because they are not happy with your from. Also if you do have an injury please speak up as we are not mind readers. If you do have a legit injury please talk to us on how to manage it and if we don't know and we tell you to go see someone smarter then us please just do it other wise we will just assume your injury is just to get you out of a WOD like a lazy kid in PE class….

Double unders
Sit ups

Work on skills, catch up on something you have missed this week

lion king cardio
Pretty sure I posted this up before but it's great lol. Yes we are doing a sort of "cardio" today but this is differnt for many reasons. 
1- It's done at a high intensity not a moderate pace for 45min to get the fat burning
2- We don't always do long cardio, we vary it up to make sure we hit differnt parts of our fitness
3- I have the power and I'll program as I please 🙂

I saw this shared on Facebook. Now I know I am biased to strength training but for good reason. Now before anyone has there say about how good running is I just want to say this…. Running is good in small doeses, when we run in an excesive amount there will be more negative effects then postive effects unless you are an edurance athlete you don't need to run everyday for heaps and heaps of Kms. Also in saying that I beleive all runners should be doing a strength program. This doesn't have to be CrossFit but what we do here is a great option as we have a mix of strength and endurance. Anyway I want to say again I am not having a go at running I just don't beleive everyone who is after general health and wellbeing needs to run 5kms a day…. 
Last note strength training makes you awesome…… 🙂

Even if you're not a DBZ fan you must still listen to Vegeta. One e.g is when you PB be happy with yourself but then just move on and aim for more. Never become comforatble with where you are at with your training. Always push for more. Once you become comfortable it's over….

Attendance analysis for May

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

Click below to look at the attendance report for May. We had 22 programmed WOD's this month so 22 or more visits would be 100% attendance. To me anything over 15 is still a solid effort. That's an average of 3-4ish sessions per week which should be the minimum. If you know anyone on this list who is laggin behind contact them and see what's hoding them back. Also on a sad note this isn't all our members on this list. As always there are people who just haven't showed up for ever but this is there own problem to sort out. 

Now to achieve 100% this can be done by coming on the Saturdays as well. 

June report will be done at the end of the month…… When we get 10 athletes with 100% attendance in 1 month I'll buy some new cool gear for the box which will be voted by the 10 athletes who attend 100% of the time…
