Mei vakantie aangepast rooster

Beste atleten,

Zoals in elke schoolvakantie dus ook in deze mei vakantie draaien we op doordeweekse dagen in de ochtend alleen de 9-10 uur les. Zorg dat je dus op tijd je bed uit komt voor een glorieus uurtje CrossFit volgens het Burpees For Breakfast principe. (grapje)

Dit geldt niet voor de weekenden, op zaterdag en zondag draaien de lessen gewoon volgens het rgeuliere schema.

Voor degenen die of niet in het onderwijs werken of geen schoolgaande kinderen hebben, de mei vakantie loopt van maandag 24 april t/m vrijdag 5 mei. Op 5 mei zijn we gewoon open.

The story of Fran:

“If a hurricane that wreaks havoc on a whole town can be Fran, so can a workout.”

Coach Greg Glassman talks about the birth of one of CrossFit’s best-known and most challenging workouts: Fran.

As a young athlete, Coach believed training with weights would help him become a better gymnast. When three sets of eight lateral raises with a Ted Williams weightlifting set didn’t replicate the feeling produced by a two-minute routine on the rings or parallel bars, Coach had to get creative. After coming up with and self-testing a workout involving three rounds of 21, 15 and 9 thrusters and pull-ups, Coach promptly threw up—but he knew he had found something that would make him better at his sport.

From there, Coach invited a friend to try the workout (with similar results), and a few decades later the WOD is still challenging CrossFitters around the world.
