Did you know that our very own resident running coach, Coach Aaron or Coach Evil as we like to call him, is also a certified CrossFit Endurance coach? Now that you do, what does that mean for you? What is means is that we are lucky enough to now offer a formal CrossFit Endurance program to the CFO community! Classes are running NOW, so don’t wait. Check out Aaron’s write up for more info:
CrossFit Oakland’s Endurance program utilizes CFE protocols with sport-specific strength training and conditioning geared towards improving performance, fitness and endurance sports potential. Are you a triathlete? A road racer preparing to run a marathon, ½ marathon, or a 5/10k race this year? Is your team looking to complete the challenge of Tough Mudder? Maybe you’re a CrossFitter wanting to improve your running technique and work on your overall endurance? If you said yes to any of these questions, this is the program for you!
What is CrossFit Endurance? Traditionally, endurance training has meant adding more time and volume to workouts for one’s body to compete a specific time or distance. Instead, this program will demand greater attention at the skill and technique level, then we’ll test that technique under stress over a much shorter period of time developing increased stamina and maximum VO2 capacity to compete faster, longer and therefore see greater athletic gains.
The CFO Endurance program consists of both track and running WODs with a separate strength and conditioning class that focuses on skill based endurance training and mobility. Participants can buy into any of the available class options that best meets their needs and schedule.
Three Available CFO Endurance Classes
TUESDAYS 6:00AM – 7:30AM Group Running/Track WOD – The focus is on proper running technique along with a track or running workout designed to maximize an athlete’s endurance and anaerobic threshold. Location is Piedmont HS, unless otherwise stated.
TUESDAYS 6:30PM – 8:00PM Group Running/Track WOD – Location is Piedmont HS, unless otherwise stated.
THURSDAYS 7:15PM – 8:30PM Group Strength Training/Conditioning Class at Uptown – For the athlete looking for more social and supportive interaction with a team training atmosphere.
