Fun And Games

Well, it’s that time again…time to start training for the CrossFit Games. This year, we’d like to have a really strong affiliate team. Individual competitors are welcome as well. Like last year, I will begin programming Games workouts next week. This year there will be a few changes and improvements.

The training is open to all, but it will require a commitment and is demanding. It’s not for everyone. You should have some CrossFit experience and be familiar with the movements, as you won’t always have a coach to guide you. Some days may require multiple workouts. This is not a fat loss program nor is it a general fitness/health program. It is training for a specific sport – the sport of fitness.

I’d like to have a meeting with all of those interested in training this year on Monday night, 12/6, 6 pm at the gym. Sign up for the meeting online if you are interested in joining us for training this year. Email Scott At Crossfitportland.com if you CAN NOT make the Monday meeting.

  1. 8:12 on the 2000m. Not terribly happy about that, 22 seconds slower than before.

  2. Yeah! Games Training! I’m looking forward to a deep affiliate team. Alternates are a must! This was really fun last year, but VERY hard.

  3. The Whole 9 site (www.whole9life.com) has a 2 part post on their blog section on “eating dirty” that was put up recently. It is a good breakdown on how to “cheat” etc.

  4. @ Jason: alternates? What are you talking about? Nothing unexpected *ever* happens at the last minute!
