July 10-11 CrossFit Endurance seminar at CrossFit Atlanta.

This seminar is for everyone who is interested in endurance training and sport: especially running.  Spend two full days with the CrossFit Endurance staff learning,
studying, and applying the principles of CrossFit Endurance. The
CrossFit Endurance Certification is an introduction to CrossFit
Endurance and other factors which impact performance.

During the certification attendees will learn how CrossFit Endurance
works for endurance athletes and CrossFit athletes. Attendees will learn
proper run mechanics. This will include video taping and drills.

Attendees will learn more about CrossFit Endurance training &
programming, nutrition, recovery, injury prevention & care.
This certification will be presented by members of the CrossFit
Endurance staff. Please wear clothing you can work out in, running
shoes, and bring a wrist watch with a stop watch function.

The endurance community is largely overtraining and this is an
indispensable tool at learning how to effectively train someone and keep
them healthy and ready for their next race.

    Okay guys, sorry for the lack of communication. California got the best of me!
    Paleo challengers here is the deal: everything is due by Friday!! We are having the hydrostatic bodyfat testing come back this Friday. The sign up sheet will be at the gym this afternoon.
    So, by Friday, make sure you have turned in all of your food logs to your mentor, done all of your homework, redone your benchmark workout (either Fran or Helen), taken your after pictures/measurements/and weight. Compile all of these things and bring the information with you on Saturday to closing “ceremonies” at 10am. Email me your pictures. You should compile your before/after stats onto a word document so people can see the changes. This is what people will base their votes on.
    The meeting should not take more than an hour so you can get on with your holiday weekend.
    See you then and finish strong!

    Thank you! I can do it towards the end of the 7 o’clock hour. I’m trying to simulate begining of the month conditions. I need a good bit of time to warm up. I’ll be in at 6:45 or so.
