Thursday WOD – 082318

WCCF PARTNER THROWDOWN SERIES AND MEMBER APPRECIATION DAY 2018!
Every year, CrossFit hosts an online Team competition called the Team Series, releasing two sets of Partner workouts on consecutive Wednesdays (Sept 19th and Sept 26th).

Also every year, we do an internal partner throwdown. This year, we have decided to piggyback off of the Team Series. So for two weeks, several of our class workouts will be the partner workouts released by CrossFit for the Team Series! And then on Sunday, October 7th, we will have our own unique set of workouts completed outside at EastOver Farm in Rochester!

After the workouts on the farm, we are having our MEMBER APPRECIATION COOKOUT! This is our chance to say thank you to all of you for supporting Whaling City CrossFit and making it the BEST gym around!

We are inviting EVERYONE who wants to play to partner up, come up with a Team Name, and get ready to throw down! Keep in mind that you and your partner will have to come to the same class in order to complete the workout together. All combinations of pairs are allowed: male-male, female-female, and male-female.

For those who are interested, you can register on the Team Series website to submit your scores for each workout and see how you rank against other teams worldwide. But that is not required. We have created an Event in TRIIB to track our Internal Team Scores and Standings. Everyone participating needs to Register (for free) here: https://whaling-city-crossfit.triib.com/events/challenges/661/. Then one Team member should message me telling me your Partner and Team Name!

There will be two divisions: Rx and Scaled. CrossFit will release Rx and Scaled versions of all the workouts. And just because you Scaled one workout does not mean you have to scale them all. I will also create additional modifications of workouts to ensure everyone can participate.

There are likely to be 3-4 workouts released for each of the 2 weeks. So if there are 4, our plan would be to program them for Thursday’s WOD, Friday’s WOD, Saturday’s WOD, and Monday’s WOD. However, if some are short or if one is a strength workout, we may be able to fit two into a regular hour class. We will have to wait and see!

If you don’t want to participate, that is absolutely fine! You can partner up with someone else in the class who isn’t participating or I will also have created a solo version of the workout.

NEW MEMBER BENEFIT:
Every Member can register for a FREE Assessment and one FREE Personal Training Session!

We decided to offer this because a lot of you have movements that you are struggling with which causes frustration and we see this. You are still scaling this or that or you have a movement that causes pain and we want to solve these problems for you.

The assessment will allow us to see opportunities for improvement and to determine if this is a problem you can solve in class or if you need some one on one attention.

If you’re not getting the results you want in class, let’s work one on one to change that!
