Ten days ago, I posted a brief blog about "secret sauce" and how there's no such thing as secret sauce when it comes to your fitness. At CrossFit 818, we believe in teaching our members how to make fitness an everyday part of their lives, and one of the ways we do that is sitting down with each member to discuss their reasons for working out and the specific goals they want to reach.
For the next couple of weeks, we'll be introducing programming that includes a specific barbell element almost every day of the week. The goal will be to give you some insight into how different training programs prepare you for different outcomes, and the heavy lifting will go great with the first few weeks of our nutritional challenge! All you metcon junkies have nothing to worry about, as this is definitely not a permanent change to CrossFit 818's regular programming and each week will include at least one longer conditioning workout.
For everyone who is participating in the CrossFit 818 Six Weeks to Summer Challenge, please make sure to review the details here and don't waste any time getting your pictures and your "Helen" baseline recorded!
