Warm-up Coach, Week 5 – Ryan Landis

Each week the warm-up area is stocked with a Roots coach who is affectionately called – The Warm-up Coach! As you all know we will be running WODs in heats through the night which means you’ll be responsible for warming yourself up but have no fear, a Warmup Coach will be near!

In addition to the coaches that are present and floating around to help you with the Open, each week there is a designated Warmup Coach (WC) in the warmup area.  The WC will change each week and we’ll introduce them here, in the weekly guide. 

The WC is there to answer any questions you have regarding how to warm up (a specific warmup will be written on the whiteboard), discuss movement standards, chat about “to scale or not to scale”, how to approach the workout, give you a pep talk, and all that good stuff.  They will also gather you and the rest of your heat minutes before it is time for your heat.


Judges, it’s the home stretch! Thank you each for volunteering over the past 5 weeks. We have a special prize drawing for the judging staff at Friday Night Lights! Don’t forget to let us know your availability for Week 5! Thank you for volunteering! We couldn’t do this without you!

Step-by-Step Guide

1. Watch the LIVE Announcement on Thursday night at 6pm to learn the workout. Go here to watch or come by the shop, we’ll have it on!
2. Tune-in to CrossFit Roots’ Facebook LIVE show at 7pm where we’ll talk about the workout. This week, we welcome special guest Marcus Martin – more on that tomorrow!
3. Sign-up on MBO for a heat time for Friday night. Heat times will be posted by 9pm in MBO on Thursday evenings. If you can’t make Friday night, be sure to sign-up for a regular group class.
4. Show up on Friday. If you’re coming to do the workout at Friday Night Lights, we recommend arriving 30 minutes before your heat begins so you have plenty of time to change clothes, check-in with the WC, and get ready.
