Swim WOD with Gretchen and Nicole

Come one come all to the first OUTDOOR swim WOD of the summer with swim coaches Gretchen and Nicole.

When: Sunday, May 31st at 10:30am
Where: Spruce Pool, location information here
What: A half hour of instruction followed by a swim WOD.

When you arrive at the pool, please check-in with the pool staff at the front desk. Tell them you are there with Roots and they will let you in. We have reserved lanes for this workout. If you plan to stay at the pool after the workout, you will need to pay the admission fee after the workout is over. 

Who is coaching the workout?
Gretchen Rech and Nicole Christensen. Both women swam Division I in college (although Gretchen was a way more accomplished swimmer than Nicole). They also coached swimming for over ten years each. You can check out Gretchen’s impressive swimming background here!

How good of a swimmer do I need to be?
You need to be comfortable in the water and able to get from one side of the pool to the other via freestyle, side stroke, or treading water. If you’re not sure, ask a coach this week in class.

What will the workout be?
Ha! Good try. As if we’d tell you:). We can tell you that the workout will involve the pool and CrossFit movements. It will absolutely be scalable so depending on your swimming ability you might swim a little more or less than others. 

Will it just be a workout?
Nope, we’ll divide the group by ability level and spend the first 30 minutes warming up, drilling, practicing technique, and prepping for the workout. 

Do I need to sign-up?
Yes! Please sign-up on MBO under the regular class schedule.

    Burpees in bathing suits? Underwater burpees? Burpees off the diving board? The possibilities are endless.
