Calling All Training Partners!

Steve P after CF Games Open Workout 13.4

It’s been a while since we last posted about Steve P and his road to the CrossFit Games.  Since qualifying this past April for the Games after finishing the Open in 11th place worldwide in his age group, Steve has been putting in some serious work.  Anyone who’s been around our Emeryville location during the evening classes has at some point likely seen Steve training.

We’ve now entered the stretch run for Steve, with just a little over a month to go until the Games.  I’m now putting out the call for anyone to join Steve in his workouts leading up to the Games as a training partner.  We employed this strategy last year as Candace trained for the Games, to great success.  It can be a huge boost to be training alongside someone else, and to know that you’re not suffering alone.  It can often lead to another rep, a faster time, a little more weight, etc.

Any of the workouts Steve is doing can be modified to your own ability.  It’s really more important that Steve has someone who can push him and help him make this last climb, than it is to do his workouts exactly as written.  We’re entering into the final, tough stretch of workouts for him; let’s show him how much we’re behind him by getting volunteers to train with him.

If you can be a training partner for Steve, even if just for a single workout over the next couple of weeks, please let us know by either emailing us or by saying so on our CFO Facebook Page.  We’ll compile a list of training partners and set up a rotation so that Steve will have a training partner at least a couple times a week (if not more, hopefully).

Let’s do this for Steve!

    Sending support from Uptown, Steve. You’ll have lots of folks wanting to be your training partner. I could, perhaps,  fetch a towel or a drink of water for you. . . .Awesome payoff for your hard,hard work and inspiring return after shoulder repairs!
