Sadly we say farewell to the very awesome Laverne Kruger . Pictured here doing her first Open a year ago she has ripped the CFN Womens CF world apart and through consistent hard work and dedication has ascended to be one of the very best female athletes in the gym, despite her size she completes every workout prescribed and moves beautifully as well. We will miss you Laverne and Eduan. All the very best in your travels.
The 2019 Open is done and dusted! Congrats to all you Red Skulls who took part in what was an epic 5 weeks of tough challenging workouts set by CrossFit HQ that had over 300,000 athletes take part globally. We are officially participators in the largest sporting event on earth, with arguably the greatest set of variable demands asked of any athlete in any code. And the good news is there is another in October! Our winter programming will set us up well to be even stronger , fitter and more capable in 6 months time. Now for the Awards Night, Saturday April 6th!! Keep it free :)
With most of the movements that we train covered off over the last month , the last remaining workout is highly likely to involve thrusters or deadlifts. The few days leading into the weekend is all about restoration and recovery, and a little practice of getting into the shapes we need to be in to avoid the ‘leak’. Today is about your breathing and the steady distribution of power over the 3 rounds . Take a breather.
