Friday Night Rowing Classes – Row with an Olympic medalist

Posted by Josh Schouten

Luka Špik, Olympic Rowing Champion, is a regular on a Friday evenings @ 6:30pm.   This class focuses on rowing technique and rowing fitness.  Each week Luka will guide and challenge members to improve their anaerobic and aerobic rowing capacity.

Rowing has a fantastic strength and technique carry over to many other CrossFit movements, as well as serious fitness.  Learning how to row efficiently, how to read all those crazy numbers on the screen, and how to pace yourself over long distances is a very valuable lesson for all athletes.

Along with great training, Luka is looking for some consistent members who would be looking at possibly entering the British Indoor Rowing Championship. Please see Luka in the classes if you’re interested.

These classes are part of your existing membership and all are welcome to take part in the sessions. Book in here.

Please be aware that the class is limited to 7ppl, as we only have 7 rowing machines.

Good Training!

This is an advanced class. The main lifts are with barbells. You must know how to perform these movements without instruction and be confident in holding form whilst under fatigue. Other than that, all are welcome!

Crossfit Program 28/1/2019 – 3/2/19

Crossfit

Last week of the first phase of training of 2019. Working towards the next phase of Squats, Deadlifts, Pulls and Press.

Tie your bootstraps and hang on in there for the last week of Phase one for the year. As we are moving through the phases we will see some of the structural exercises disappear and some of the big bang ones appear, keeping in mind that if you still need some work on these please keep these going in open gym or before class if you can get in early! Put those little black books away this week, have some fun and most of all keep warm.
