HYROX 2023

As the year comes to an end, we can reflect on a fantastic HYROX season by our members:

• Amsterdam
• Valencia
• Paris
• London
All featured on the schedule with multiple qualifiers for the World Championships and two podium finishes.

CrossFit provides the perfect fitness base for HYROX competitors and CrossFit athletes have consistently excelled at HYROX competitions since they launched.

The photo is one of our members at the London event , just a ordinary person doing extraordinary things and we run dedicated HYROX preparation sessions every week.

... By remaining steadfast in our uncompromising standards, we attract — and cultivate — “our people,” and we give each other an opportunity to push beyond our perceived limits. The standard is the standard, and while CrossFit is infinitely scalable, we don’t move the goalposts to make it easier or more comfortable. CrossFit both attracts and develops grit.

It may seem counterintuitive, but I believe our rigorous standards create the belonging, camaraderie, and sense of shared triumph CrossFit is known for. When you push yourself to your limit, when you work right at your edge, it isn’t always pretty. Your tidy, protective layers go out the window. You let people see who you really are. This is true vulnerability, raw and real.

CrossFit offers access to something typically available only to those performing at an elite level: the opportunity to step beyond a threshold of effort and comfort, to commit fully, and to really, truly stretch yourself. Every single person who does a CrossFit workout, no matter their age or their ability, has this opportunity in front of them. CrossFit is a safe place to push yourself into new territory of being.

Like anything else in life, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. Sometimes you look like a badass, sometimes you’re a crying mess. But no matter how hard you struggle, we won’t let you give up on yourself. We love you anyway. — Nicole Carroll

The power of CrossFit

“20 years…

On the left I was 28 years old with two little boys. On the right I’m 48 years old (current).

Never underestimate the power of consistency. I found almost 17 years ago and I absolutely believe it changed the course of my life.

The differences in my body are obvious. I’m feeling healthy and strong and ready to take on the next half century soon.

Even better than the physical changes, I can actually see the confidence I hold in my frame now. I feel capable, valuable, and sometimes even powerful.

One hour a day I take class. I focus on eating real food - meats, and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch, and no sugar (mostly). AND I JUST KEEP GOING.” –CrossFit Athlete Communications Manager Becky Harsh

06-12/03/2023 sessions

Evening everyone 👋🏼

I hope you have all had a great weekend. Here are your sessions for the week.

Monday - Skill/strength focus. Working through strict ring muscle ups with plenty of scaling options. This leads us into an AMRAP of Strict ring muscle up, ring dips, sit ups and double unders. Plenty of scaling options all round.

Tuesday - Starting off with heavy double hang cleans building to a heavy double for the day. Finishing with an ascending into descending ladder of front squats and burpee over bar.

Wednesday - A task workout of farmers carry, box jumps and strict handstand push ups. Again - plenty of scaling options on the strict handstand push ups and plenty of time to practice to see what appropriate scaling option (if needed) is best for you.

Thursday - Heavy day! Building to a heavy 3 overhead squat.

Friday - Our interval day. Double kettlebell front rack box step overs, rope climbs into max calories on the rower. An opportunity to work on rope climbs for those who struggle with the skill.

Saturday - Team WOD! Teams of 3 working through 3 parts. First part each member establishes a max clean for load. This then leads into an AMRAP of synchro wall balls, synchro wall walks and synchro burpee over bar whilst also working through max distance row.

Sunday - Hero workout 'DT'. 5 rounds of deadlifts, hang power cleans and shoulder to over head. Compare your scores to W/C 13/06/2022. Finishing the session with some parallette L-Sit holds.

Weightlifting - Continuing with our EMOM work leading into the final weeks of our current cycle. Cleans with jerks from rack on Tuesday, Sn**ch and Back squat on Thursday, max hang sn**ch and max jerk from rack on Saturday.

Have a great week,

Tom.

The Magic of CrossFit 24/01/2023

The power in CrossFit isn’t just some strange alchemy.

In truth, it’s a formula — a formula that works. It’s the formula for everything we do, from forging elite fitness to preventing and reversing chronic disease. It’s the inputs that give us the outcomes — the results that have revolutionized an industry and changed millions of lives across the world for the better.

This formula is the CrossFit methodology plus our ethos. This is the authentic, no-bullsh*t heart of what we believe and stand upon — and this is all brought to life by our coaches and lived and reinforced by our community.

This defines who we are and what we do and ultimately leads to the results, culture, and community that everyone recognizes as CrossFit.

Auburn CrossFit Through a New Member’s Eyes

13/01/2023

Whenever someone says they want to lose weight, what they usually mean is that they want to lose body fat. For someone that has some weight to lose or even just someone looking to improve their body composition, you’d still want to maintain as much lean muscle mass as possible. This is why weight loss goals are actually fat loss goals.

With that said, burning fat boils down to a very simple math equation: You need to burn more calories than you consume. Now, of course, food quality and the nutrient density of your food matter, but when talking about fat loss, you need to be in a caloric deficit. It’s that simple.
But simple doesn’t mean easy, and this is where food quality comes into play when it comes to fat loss.

Our WOD of the week is… “The other CrossFit total”

After the call of “3, 2, 1… go,” the athlete may make as many attempts at a 1-rep-max Clean as desired. Then the athlete will make as many attempts at a 1-rep-max Bench Press as desired. Finally, the athlete will make as many attempts at a 1-rep-max Overhead Squat as desired.

Score will be the sum of the best successfully completed Clean, Bench Press, and Overhead Squat in kilograms.
