CrossFit Endurance is BACK!

CrossFit Endurance is Back!

Starting this coming week, CrossFit Endurance is back on the schedule. That’s right, we won’t let a little wind and snow keep us down. The plans for CrossFit Endurance at Roots are BIG and we are starting RIGHT NOW!

-Is running a half-marathon or a faster 10K on your list of goals? 
-Is a triathlon in your future? 
-Have you been frustrated or injured by the long, slow distance training methodology that virtually every other training program utilizes? 
-Do you want to be the person sprinting in the door after the 4th 400M run in “Kelley” and going right into box jumps? 
-Is running a weakness that you are ready to attack?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you owe it to yourself to explore CFE.

DON’T MISS the Info Session on Feb 1st at 7PM.  Roots members as well as anyone interested in CrossFit and Endurance training is welcome to attend.

What is it?

CrossFit Endurance is an endurance sports training program dedicated to improving performance, fitness and endurance sports potential. Power and speed are critical components to success in the endurance world. With careful planning, our strength and conditioning plan increases these two mainstays of performance while decreasing recovery time, reducing injury, promoting preservation of lean tissue and creating a more sustainable performance curve.

We focus on eliminating unnecessary volume of training while increasing intensity. Our programming is structured, sport-specific and seamlessly integrated with Olympic lifts, powerlifting, gymnastics movements, explosive activity and mobility-based support. Everything we do focuses on midline stabilization and working from the inside out.

Our strength and conditioning approach for endurance athletes is unparalleled. We incorporate the CrossFit fundamentals of being constantly varied. Repetition is the enemy and results in a decreased ability to build fitness.

Make no doubt, this program is not easy, but the journey is what makes the results that much more rewarding.

Our design is to maximize you as a sport-specific athlete and to elevate your fitness.

What does this look like at Roots?

From now until March 12th, we will have 2 CrossFit Endurance workouts per week. Think of this as preseason. This is the time to test the waters and experience first hand what CFE is all about. Beginning March 12, we are upping the ante and will launch a full-fledged 12-week CrossFit Endurance program at Roots for a limited number of athletes that are ready to commit to making this the focus of their training. This program will combine the CrossFit WODs that you are used to with CFE-specific workouts. It’s going to be SICK!

How do I sign up?

– Sign up will be on MBO just like any other WOD. The Preseason CFE WODs (until March 12) are open to all members and are included in your membership.  Class times will be Mondays at 4:30pm and Wednesdays at noon. You must be a member of Roots to attend these classes.

– Come to the Info Session. We will outline the program and answer all your questions. If you have friends that are not yet members, they are welcome to attend the info session.  We will be offering a Foundations class tailored to the endurance community prior to the program kickoff.
