We have a very exciting announcement to make!
CJ Martin and George Economou, the programming genius’s from CrossFit Invictus will be designing and programming the WODs at CrossFit Léman starting July 1st 2012!
George and CJ train the likes of Camille Le-Blanc Bazinet, Josh Bridges, Jenny LaBaw, Elyse Umeda and Dave Lipson amongst others. CrossFit Invictus’s team (including Shane Farmer) won their Regional at the CrossFit Games and are among the favorites for a podium finish this year. Needless to say the coaching and programming from CrossFit Invictus is world class.
And we are bringing that world class here, to little Switzerland, to CrossFit Léman.
To be clear, we are not just going to follow the programming posted on CrossFit Invictus’s website, like we have been the HQ or ‘dot com’ WODs for the past year. CrossFit Invictus will be programming specifically for us. We have spent time discussing variables such as our demographics, age and gender, seasonality, macro/micro cycles, average length of membership, competency, skill levels, goals, bias, team training, equipment, competitions, limitations etc etc. All this has been taken into account in the programming being developed.
Some of the programming will involve percentage based loads and tempo training. To get the most out of this we will need you to keep accurate records of your training, so if you don’t have one it’s seriously time to get your hands on one of our log books (or any log book for that matter!).
To ensure that the programming is working we will be starting ‘whiteboard’ tests. We will not tell you when these are, but we will take pictures of the scores posted on the whiteboard and use those to measure your and the gym’s progress. Based on these results the program will be adjusted to ensure continuous progress.
As I said this is a very exciting announcement for us. We have gone to the gold standard of coaches, nay, platinum standard of coaches, and are bringing it to you.
It’s a good time to be a member of CrossFit Léman!
Euan, Olga, Gretchen and Alexandra
PS – CrossFit Léman is the first to do this globally.
