Strong, fun, energetic, inspiring, caring, competent, and all around good person. That's Coach Lorie in a nutshell. Want to train hard and have a few laughs at the same time? Come to Lorie's Fun Friday WODs at the 10 am class. You'll leave with a smile on your face.
Pam A. and Sheila Q. hitting it hard with some wall ball shots.
Want really get your heart rate up? Try doing some rowing and wall ball shots for time. Rowing alone will get you moving, but throwing in 50 wall ball shots after a 2000m row will challenge even the those with the best cardiovascular conditioning. Like everything else we do in CrossFit, if you can't get a 20-pound ball to a 10 foot target, then scale the ball weight or adjust the target height. Just because it's scaled doesn't make it easier. Intensity is relative to each individual -- we only record time and look for good form. We don't measure the ego.
Rick L. and Linda P. going hard and fast on the rowing-box jump WOD last week.
Over 50 and looking for a great way to train? CrossFit can't be beat. Rick L. and Linda P. are both over 50, but you certainly wouldn't know it. These two go harder and faster and put out more effort than people half their age.
Sally, Heather, and Amie bust out a 20 minute WOD of rowing, deads, situps, and walking lunges.
Whether the class size is one, three, or twelve, you'll get your money's worth. Warmup, mobility work, skill drills, and a workout followed by time to cool down and stretch are the hallmark of the training we strive for at CFOC. If you've only trained in large groups, try hitting the 8:30 am classes or 6:30 and 7 pm classes for smaller groups. Likewise, if all you've trained with are the small groups, try to hit up a classtime with larger groups to see what that's like. It's good to mix things up and work with different coaches and people so that you stay on top of your game and push yourself.
Nothing like doing some overhead work followed by a little fun with the sleds. The goal was to see just how heavy a sled you could push for 25 yards. The heaviest sled was about 430 lbs for the men and about 230 for the women.
Tons of people eat processed foods and don't think twice about it. Whole, natural foods should be our aim, if not the only type of food we put into our bodies. Click HERE to see a video and read up on what happens when you compare the digestion of processed vs. whole food side-by-side. Oh, and don't watch this before eating.
