CrossFit Open 2023 – February 16th – March 6th

Posted 7th February 2023 by Josh Schouten

The 2023 CrossFit Open is an exciting opportunity to challenge yourself and see how you stack up against other athletes from around the world. Here are the top three reasons why you should consider participating in the 2023 CrossFit Open:

  1. Personal Growth and Improvement: The CrossFit Open provides a unique opportunity to test your fitness levels and track your progress over time. By taking part, you will be able to identify your strengths and weaknesses and work on improving in areas where you struggle.
  2. Community and Camaraderie: CrossFit is a community-driven sport and the Open is a great way to connect with other athletes and build relationships with like-minded individuals. The competition can also bring out the best in people and create a supportive environment where everyone is cheering each other on.
  3. A Chance to Compete: The CrossFit Open is an opportunity to push yourself to your limits and compete against others in a safe and supportive environment. Whether you are a seasoned athlete or a beginner, the Open provides a challenge for all levels of fitness, and it’s a great way to set new personal bests and push yourself to be the best athlete you can be.

In conclusion, the 2023 CrossFit Open is a fantastic opportunity for personal growth, community building, and competition. So, whether you’re looking to test your limits, meet new people, or simply have some fun, don’t hesitate to sign up and see what you’re made of!

We will be holding the workouts Friday 17th, 24th and March 3rd. The class will be run in a slightly different format to normal. This will be a great social event if not a ball-busting workout for all.

Momentum Standards

Posted by Josh Schouten

 

Introducing the Momentum Training Standards Board: Your Fitness Journey Map to “Ridiculously Good”!

Ladies and Gentlemen, gather around because we have some exciting news for all of you fitness enthusiasts out there. We’re proud to announce the release of our new and improved standards board! It’s like a roadmap to your fitness goals, but with more sweat, grunts and maybe a little bit of crying (but only when you realise just how “ridiculously good” you can become).

The standards board allows you to track your progress and see where you are on your fitness journey, whether you’re a “Novice” just starting out or a seasoned pro ready to take on the “Ridiculously Good” challenge. Want to be a “cardio king” or “strength queen”? No problem! With our standards board, you’ll know exactly what milestones you need to hit to reach your desired level of fitness.

So, how do you get started? It’s simple! Just come to a class, sweat like a pig and let our instructors do the rest. They’ll assess your abilities and place you on the board. And don’t worry, there’s no need to feel embarrassed if you find yourself starting as a “Novice.” Everyone has to start somewhere, and we promise not to judge (unless, of course, you’re not sweating enough, then all bets are off!).

So, what are you waiting for? Grab your water bottle, lace up those sneakers, and let’s get to work. The “Ridiculously Good” level is calling, and it’s time to answer the call!

See you at the gym!

Disclaimer: The “Ridiculously Good” level might require a little more effort and dedication than just showing up to class and sweating. But hey, it’s all part of the journey!

P.s. In the coming days you will see this appear in the front room, on the wall next to the stairs.
