Welcome Groupon!

Posted: January 10, 2012 by Jason in WODs

Today is the day. To all Crossfit Groupon buyers, Welcome! We are very excited to meet each and every one of you and get you started on your Crossfit journey. Please don’t be nervous, this is an opportunity for you to embark on your fitness goals and learn something new. THIS IS ALL ABOUT YOU! We want to make this experience as positive as possible meanwhile provide you with what we believe is an exemplary fitness program. Please keep in mind a few things before you show up to class:

1. If you come to a morning class, EAT BREAKFAST!! The workouts are high intensity so we want you to have fuel to burn. That being said, make sure you are hydrated with water and bring extra water with you. If you come to an afternoon class, make sure you have had a light snack within the past 30 mins.

2. YOU WILL BE SORE! You will be performing unfamiliar movements at a faster pace than you normally would. DOMS (Delyaed onset muscle soreness) is usually worst the 2nd day after a workout. Muscle soreness and stiffness are caused by tiny tears in the muscles due to increased intensity or duration of an exercise or a new exercise program. Be prepared, this is normal, and it will get better. Take a few ibuprofen, tylenol, what have you, make sure to drink plenty of water and get good rest. Here is more information about DOMS:

3. Bring your Groupon printout with you to your first class. We will mark it redeemed and your 12 sessions begin as of then. Don’t forget to mention who referred you! 

4. Please check the blog and our Facebook page frequently. We often post schedule changes, upcoming events, and other information through these domains. Subscribe to our blog so you get emails whenever a new blog/workout is posted.

5. If you cannot make one of the specifically scheduled Groupon classes, please contact Erica to make an appointment to attend another class. This is not a problem, we just want to be prepared.

6. Last but not least, bring a journal. Or something you can record in what you’ve done for the day. We recommend you set goals, and actively work towards them every time you enter the gym. The way to measure progress is by documenting it and seeing how far you’ve come, or how much you need to work on.

That being said, tomorrow’s WOD is:

For time:
50 Wall Ball
40 SDHP (sumo deadlift high pull)
30 Shoulder to Overhead
20 T2B (Toes to Bar)

This may look like Chinese to you, but don’t worry. Everything will be explained, modified and an overall awesome workout. HAVE FUN & GOOD LUCK!!!
