CrossFit Park City is in their 13th year of business. Some of the members of the gym have been with us from the very start. Many for 7 years or more! With the increase in fitness franchises trying to use similar methods as CrossFit the culture in the gym, willing to receive feedback, and focusing on the entire community can be a challenge. Listen in on some of the things Doug and Chris tackle with this topic.
This week Doug and Chris get a review from an affiliate owner with some good questions on having kids in group classes that they address. Follow it up with the Open and what this season is looking to bring with the new time of year and the Rogue Iron Games! And…. do you sit on medicine balls?
Doug and Chris have covered this topic many times before and it’s a consistent theme in the culture they work to create. Some more questions from members and listeners bring them not just to what that means but how to do it.
This week Doug and Chris finish off the topic of the 10 General Physical Skills. The last 4 cover the neurological components of the list. Blending this topic in with world class fitness in 100 words and if this definition is even appropriate to follow as a training guide are a few of the topics covered. Plus…. who needs sponsors anyway!
Chris and Doug continue their topic on the 10 GPS and how they apply to training methods in CrossFit. This week we dig into Speed and Power. Interestingly they are a combination of both Organic and Neurological development and can at times be more difficult to help people improve with than some of the other modalities.
Doug and Chris keep rolling through the 10 GPS this week. Tackling the most popular for many… strength. How much is enough, can you have too much, how long does it take to develop? Thankfully Doug got rid of his mattress and is in a better mood though.
This week Doug and Chris are back in the swing of things after he was in Alaska. We are running through the 10 General Physical Skills, what they are, and how they apply to our training and programming over the next few weeks. Today is the first two on the list followed up with some additional topics, more editing issues…. and some solid pet peeves.
This week all is well with technology and Doug and Chris are able to record the entire podcast! Imagine that! They give a review on the Games from their perspective, share their thoughts on the programming, the winners, and the general vibe of the entire competition.
After your long awaited podcast consistency and getting back in sync we run into technical issues today! The recording stopped! True to our Icon podcast ways we don’t edit it out and let it be what it is. What will you get? A brief intro into what we think of the Games so far, a cliff notes version of previously talked about content from Q and A’s, reviews, and of course our pet peeves which are extra salty this week.
Lots of changes this year with the Games season and it’s going to be interesting to see how it all plays out in the coming weeks. Doug and Chris talk through the concept of cuts this year, how it may impact some athletes, and what the perception of the sport might be.
A few conversations with inquiring members spark the topic for the day with the podcast! Wether we like it or not there is still a stereotype or perception that CrossFit causes injuries. Where does it come from, why, is it justified? It’a almost an entire episode of pet peeves!
Doug and Chris continue with the regular schedule despite getting some well deserved heckling from reviews. They finish up some reviews they missed previously which turn their day around from grumpy pants. Follow that up with talking through the difference in mentality with training during Chris’s days of competition till now.
