Another fabulous i-course day with a great group of learners, all anxious for a taste of Crossfit “Kool aid”.
As normal, attendees were treated to a day long technique workshop where a friendly and fun teaching team of Andrew Kate, Tim, Sophia, Rachel and Phil, broke complex skills down into bite sized morsels of fitness goodness and spoon feed them to an eager to learn group.
We saw some outstanding improvements during the day and a big “high five” to those who got the muscle up.
However, for he record, the secret behind the dish rock, is core strength, and probably not “a magic cave in your tummy with pixies running up and down in it” as was suggested . As to Andrews idea that “if you fail to get proper hip extension in the snatch , no one will marry you”, our lawyers have asked us to concede that there is actually very little evidence to support this proposition.
Put simply, if you are a fitness enthusiast, a sport scientist, a trainer or just someone curious about Crossfit, this is probably one of the best introductions to it: its bloody well taught, engaging and fun.
