03/06/2013 CrossFit Endurance @ CrossFit Hackney

Posted 3rd June 2013 by Josh Schouten


At CrossFit Hackney we believe that CrossFit Endurance (CFE) is smashing all the rules and offering the endurance community an alternative to train for ALL endurance sports in possibly a smarter and healthier way. Both Stretch and Josh have trained under the Co founder of Brian Mackenzie seeing amazing results in not only their own training but also the athletes that have adopted the CFE protocol and training methods. You will train hard, this is not an option but you will only ever complete what you can recover from. CFE will require you to have an “unscared” attitude towards training and trying new things. After all results speak louder than words.

CrossFit Hackney will be following the prescription laid out on the CFE main-page two weeks behind offering endurance athletes sport specific training sessions to hit 3-6 days per week. While the strength and conditioning workouts will appear on the timetable in July. For now we will upload the sport specific sessions for you to head out and complete week in, week out.

Our aim is to offer an alternative to the time sapping Long Slow Distance (LSD) that we have all become accustomed to as being the only way to train for endurance sports. CrossFit Hackney and CrossFit Endurance are here to open you eyes to the alternatives out there. Tip: Keep and eye out for Runners World UK in the coming months. A change is in the air.
