Intensity and speed are two things we constantly chase in CrossFit. However, oftentimes pacing out a long workout is essential. You're not going to approach Murph at the same pace as you approach Fran. If you did, you would miss the point of the workouts. One is about endurance and stamina and one is about speed and stamina. These two workouts represent two different training adaptations and therefore, two different training approaches.
Knowing WHY we do specific workouts can help you prepare for HOW you're going to do it. Of course, you DON'T have to think much about this since all of our coaches tell you WHY we're doing the WOD in every single class.
Today we are joining together to go FAR for a great local organization, Warriors & Quiet Waters. We are offering a FREE workout today at 5:30pm to kick off our Give Big Gallatin Valley Gym Challenge.
Give Big Gallatin Valley is a 24-hour event devoted to the philanthropic support of 195 participating nonprofits that make our community thrive. By giving to Warriors and Quiet Waters Foundation (WQW), you provide post-9/11 combat veterans with restorative fly-fishing experiences that directly address the top three most pressing issues facing WQW participants:
