Want to Learn How to Row From an Olympian Rower?
Whenever we have rowing in a workout, does part of you die inside? Then what could be better than slaving away at the erg for the next three and half months?! Learn to love the erg as much as you fear it: join the CFSBK Indoor Rowing Team to train for CRASH-Bs, the premier indoor rowing championship, on March 1!
Coach Nick (who competed in the Sydney 2000 Summer Olympics) will lead the team through a program to prepare for CRASH-Bs, which be held in Boston on Sunday, March 1. The participants will meet up for three technique clinics (each of which will conclude with a workout), plus regular races at the gym. Nick will post a program for each week, and will provide support (answering questions, evaluating videos, etc.) throughout the next few months for the team. Members will perform the workouts on their own.
The cost of the program is $220. Various payment installment options are available. The fee does not include the $25 CRASH-Bs entry fee, travel to Boston, or accommodations in Boston.
If you’re interested, come to Nick’s kick-off meeting at 2:15pm this Sunday, Nov. 2. He’ll explain the program in detail and answer questions. (Best not to PR your squat that morning – there might also be a workout.) Send Nick an email at nick [at] crossfitsouthbrooklyn [dot] com if you plan to show up or if you have any questions.
Here’s what some past team members say about their experience training for CRASH-Bs:
“The strength of the program, and what makes it so gut-wrenchingly brutal, is that Nick treats you like an Olympian. He was persistent in his desire to push us beyond our limits to new bests and see us succeed on race day.“
“It was an amazing experience for me. I’ve always struggled with staying motivated and consistent with workouts. The team dynamic and structure helped me overcome that in a way that I never have before… It was the hardest physical challenge I have ever tackled, well, except for giving birth… It was freaking amazing…“
There’s Still Time to Sign Up for CFSBK’s Endurance Program!
What: An 8-Week intensive program based in the form and endurance needs for CrossFit Runners
When: Thursdays at 7pm and Saturdays at 11am, starting this Thursday, October 30th
Where: Determined each week between Prospect Park or Red Hook Track
Schedule and Pricing: $175 full-access to the 8-week program (including bi-weekly coached group sessions, benchmarking, training data, and full plan support and guidance)
What to Expect: This will be 8 Weeks of 2x/a week Running, Drill Work, and the basic biomotor requirements to become a more fluid runner and increase your endurance relative to Crossfit training. We will work on everything from basic balance and stability, to some run-specific single leg plyo training, and power production specific for the needs of a strong athlete. This program will NOT be a Half-Marathon or Marathon Training program, but it will enhance your ability to absorb any program like that, or simply to increase your metabolic energy systems to help you absorb higher and more intense work loads in your training
Due to the progressive nature of the program, athletes will not be permitted to join after November 6th, 2014.
