The day started off fine enough, a good sized group huddled into the surprisingly gold gym up in the mountains and we got to the lectures. All very informative, talking about the levels of kids classes, how to approach them, how to program for them, how to interact with them and so much more. Each lecture was split up with some form of activity, and we were even able to hang out for a handful of pretty fun classes with a whole slew of pre-schoolers, awesomely energetic little kids, and some impressive teens.
I realize my review of the weekend is a little sparse, I just feel getting into the details of this may be a little boring, or at least the way I would end up writing about it would turn out that way. I think the best way to approach this one is to hit certain topics that I found very intriguing during the weekend, and write about them in some other context besides a lecture. Seeing how the majority of my clients in my training career have been 12 to 18 year olds, I have some pretty decent insight into working with this demographic. So I have quite a few ideas brewing for posts that I think will be very interesting.
Also, for some reason or another I have been hit with about 8 ideas for posts I really want to get writing about. So I think this month may see a bit of the analytical/philosophical side of good ol' me. Oh, and in other news, as of yesterday evening, CrossFit Courage is officially up on the CrossFit main site! Check it out in the affiliates section, under California and Burlingame!
My final topic here is the official announcement of my CrossFit Community Month! Last January I traveled around to about 6 or 7 affiliates I the greater Washington, DC area, I talked with coaches and athletes, did a workout, video taped it all and wrote up a big post on each one. This year I am upping the challenge to myself a TON, all while hopefully spreading the CrossFit love to an even greater number of people. From the 1st through the 30th of January, I plan to visit at LEAST 24 affiliates in the Bay Area, interviewing, working out, videoing and writing about the entire process. This is going to be both an absolute blast, and an unreal demand on my physical and mental body. But then again, that's part of the point huh? I'll be posting up more details about this later in the month as things get scheduled out, so stay tuned for that fun.
Now it's back to Burlingame and back t work!
Never Stop, GET FIT.
