I’ve had more than a couple inquires about our Endurance Program, and the upcoming block of training for the 2013 Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon. So I decided to answer a few points that seem to be popping up.
How does CFD Endurance work with CrossFit Distinction?
We are a supplement to CrossFit Distinction’s excellent Strength & Conditioning (S&C) program.
A solid S&C program that incorporates a variety of functional movements done with intensity is the CORE of any CrossFit Endurance Program. Guess what?! CrossFit Distinction (or any well programmed CrossFit affiliate) has:
“constantly varied functional movements done at high intensity”
This is your base. The Endurance work is a supplemental to the CrossFit WOD’s.
Ideally you will be doing 4 – 5 CrossFit WOD’s a week, with 2 – 3 CFD Endurance WOD’s a week. (Don’t worry, we provide guidance on how to best work within your schedule.)
I don’t want to run a marathon, 1/2 marathon, or even a 10k. I just want to get better, can I participate in the program?
ABSOLUTELY! I keep telling people, CrossFit builds the engine, CrossFit Endurance gives it a bigger gas tank. Our program is designed to help the endurance athlete looking for a new way to train AND the CrossFit athlete that wants to work longer and be faster.
Can’t I just follow along on the blog, why should I pay for the program?
Just like 99% of all CrossFit affiliates, we will be posting our 2 – 3 Endurance workouts a week on the blog. For the world to see, for FREE.
But just like 99% of the individuals that are members of a CrossFit affiliate know, you get soooooo much more being a paid member.
CrossFit and CrossFit Endurance programs are much much more than the WOD’s posted on internet blogs and whiteboards across the globe. They are passionate coaches who want to see you succeed, and know you can do more. They are experience that will show you how to perform a movement or scale a workout properly. They are the voice of reason and encouragement. These programs, more often than not, are greater than the sum of their parts.
To give a little insight, we made this Sneak Peak.
Hopefully this clears things up, and encourages those sitting on the fence. We really are excited about showing the greater Cleveland area what can be accomplished with some intelligent programming, dedication, and hard work!
