We are closed this Sat. and Sun. while hosting a CrossFit Trainer Seminar.
Workout of the Day
Due to the overwhelming wuss response to yesterday's posted workout, we are no longer posting a workout of the day. In practice a great many people were getting or doing workouts different than the posted workout anyway. Henceforth, the CrossFit Workout of the Day will be considered a suggestion, and we won't bother to post it here. So, if you want to know what your workout is, come to the gym and find out.
Will CrossFit make you a better paddler? Yes, we don't know why, but it does. Professional kayaker and Cosmopolitan pin-up Brad
Ludden is one of those lucky people who have found a way to make a
living doing something they love.
He started kayaking at 12, and by the age of 17 Ludden had a host of
sponsors and was living the dream as a pro athlete. Years later, through
his friendship with Kelly Starrett, Ludden was introduced to CrossFit
but was at first skeptical about his need to squat: “I don’t need legs. I
just sit down for a living.”
After experiencing CrossFit, Ludden found that overall fitness was
important to his performance on the river but also his safety in a
dangerous and unforgiving sport.
“In one year of training with Kelly and training with CrossFit, I saw
my kayaking hit a whole other gear—and I had been paddling
professionally at that point for eight years. I saw a whole other gear
that I didn’t know existed.”
