NEWS & UPDATES

THE WATER IS FIXED TO THE FRONT SHOWER BATHROOM!


SKILL LEVEL TESTING IS BACK  – AND YOU WILL GET TO DO SOME CAPACITY TESTING THIS WEEK!

Wednesday of this week if you are “in” (not completed with) Level 1, or “in” Level 2, you will have the chance to test out of the time cap for Helen (L1) or Christine (L2). Both will come with secret rep counters and a lot of pressure so get ready!

If you’ve been living under a rock for the past month, these Levels were recently reinstituted as a means of ensuring we’re focused on the basics and not getting carried away with competition and missing our deficits.

The crux of this is that CrossFit creates a balanced athlete…IF (IF, IF, IF) you have coaches that ensure you’re not getting stronger at the expense of speed, and not getting faster at the expense of strength, and not missing your gymnastics and mobility entirely! It’s so easy to get caught up in what we love and what we’re good at and miss other essential elements to becoming a balanced athlete.

The 4 Skill Levels were created by CrossFit Seattle. We have made some adjustments to accommodate the older athlete. And we have rounded them out as CrossFit has introduced higher level and “other gymnastics” that are now considered essential (such as handstands/inversions).

This is Skill Level 1. The “game” is, you must test out of Skill Level 1 before you can move to Level 2. ALL (repeat ALL) of Level 1 must be successfully tested out before you can move on to Level 2. Once you have worked through the list, you’ll find the areas that are lacking are probably consistent: either speed, strength, or gymnastics, or further broken down into pushing, pulling, core, or “work”. There is a Skill Level 2, 3 and 4. Skill Level 1 is considered minimum standards for a healthy individual and represents a healthy beginner.

 

TESTING OUT CAN BE DONE ON THURSDAYS AND SATURDAYS during Open Gym, or IF we have a regular programmed day where the work is completed with more than 15 minutes to spare…then your coaches can help test you out (time permitting).

TEST OUTS must be observed and signed off by a coach! “This is a test”.

Further, if you have areas that need work, that’s where your coaches come in. The “crate” that the skill levels will reside in will also include work sets (linear progressions) for speed and strength to help you “fix” those deficient areas faster. This part is in the works, and while it’s in final development stages, just ask your coaches for help.
