Eva and Schedule Change for Christmas Eve

As some of you may be aware we have our 2nd Annual Christmas Eve WOD coming up, this WOD being 'Eva'.

All classes will run as normal except the 9.30am class which will commence at 11.00am instead.

This year it's going to be a little different, you can do the workout as you please, so you can do it as an individual, as part of a partnership, or as a Team, the choice is yours.

The WOD will be followed by a BBQ and drinks, probably around 12.00pm - 12.30pm. Feel free to bring along any family and friends, but please let us know by Thursday, for catering purposes.

I want to say a thank you to all the Athletes that put it on the line today & real big thank you to all the people that helped make this day roll on. Everyone of them was what made the day run like it did, theres too many to mention. It makes me real proud to say that im Head Coach of CFP.

TOP DOG 2

With TOP DOG this year including Individuals, Teams & Masters we have had to find a bigger space to accomodate everything. The day will be split over 2 locations. We are fortunate to have a great location just a few hundred metres from or Box. Jamison Park Netball complex will be a great area to showcase CrossFit.

The Address is; Cnr of Batt St & York Rd South Penrith

I have outlined a timeline below. Im still finalising some heats so just use this as a guide at this stage.

Registration - 7.30am-8.30am

WOD #1 9-11am
Masters
Teams
Scaled
Rxd

WOD #2 11-12.30pm
Masters
Teams
Scaled
Rxd

12.30-1pm Break
Pack up tents etc and walk to CFP Box (300m)

1- Finish (Approx 2.30pm)
Team WOD #3
Masters WOD #3
Scaled "Top 5 Shoot out"
Rxd "Top 5 Shoot out"

Presentations

This will be a full day of competition, but I'm confident of sticking to the schedule with everyone's co operation. The Masters & Teams will do 3 WOD's each & the lowest ranked Athlete & Team will be Crowned the winners.
In the Scaled & Rxd division, there will be 3 scoring opportunities with a cut to get the final 5. These athletes will also be scored & ranked in the same manner as the Masters & Teams. We have a good mix of elements to test on the day and I'm sure everyone will have fun. We see TOP DOG as an "unoficial ticket" to the world CrossFit Games as 50% of the athletes that made the podium last year ended up competing in Carson City Los Angles.

Rest Day



Anyone who knows me through CFP knows my admiration & passion for the Masters. This not only extends to CrossFit & the intro from CFHQ last year to formally start up the Masters Catergory (50+) in competition.


My interest in getting people active in the 50+ age range has been a mission of mine for some years now. Any CFP regular knows Margaret & she is without doubt my greatest success story, whilst she was very active when I met her, she had a frozen shoulder & was advized that it may not ever improve. She thrived since starting a "Seniors Strength & Conditioning" program that i kicked of a few years back when I was working in the land of Globo. In the last 12 months she has moved on to CrossFit as her primary source of Strength & Conditioning.


It seems that more and more evidence is accumulating regarding the benefits of high-intensity (or at least higher-intensity) exercise well into the golden years of life. It appears that a fairly strong case can be made for exercise improving one's quality of life, and there may even be a case mounting for high-intensity exercise extending your life (although certainly not as strong a case at this point, since studies on the interaction of exercise and life extension are still a fairly new area for examination).


I was put on to a recent NY Times article "The Incredible Flying Nonagenarian" (see link at end of post), Olga Kotelko is profiled. Olga, a masters track athlete who currently holds 23 world records, 17 of them in her current age category (90-94 years old), doesn't show any signs of slowing down.


The article is a fascinating portrait of Olga, but is also a nice discussion of high-intensity exercise and its benefits, as well as some discussion of what's going on at a cellular level when it comes to aging. The author of the article even points out that some scientists now view aging as a mitochondrial disease.


My favorite tangential excerpt had to do with a researcher's findings on NASA and its astronauts, their loss of muscle while in space (a well-documented occurrence in space travel), and their suboptimal exercise program. They were using a program centered around treadmills, a stationary bike, and a resistance machine.



The researcher's recommendation: "Trappe concluded the regime wasn’t nearly hard-core enough. His prescription for NASA: heavier loads and explosive movements. 'It’s pretty clear that intensity wins up there,' he says."


The article is a great read, albeit a long one, so grab a cup of coffee and your bifocals and read up:
