Beach Crew & Crossfit

ARE YOU GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR ERG WORKOUT ?

When your WOD includes an erg piece do you cringe? When you have to row for 250 meters are you left feeling completely spent? Are you out of breath and sore in the back from your erg work? Guess what, you’re not alone…but it doesn’t have to be that way.

WHAT ARE ROWERS DOING?

Rowers often row more than 10,000 meters during one practice. Our 500m split times are usually below 1:40. Our races are 2000 meters long with no breaks, no time-outs, and no quitting. Is a 5’11″, 170 pound rower with wiry 15″ biceps stronger than you?…probably not. But 500m is a walk in the park for him. Come learn how he does it.

CROSS FIT AND BEACH CREW

Cross Fit is all about improving your overall fitness through diverse training routines and often included in your WODs are pieces on a rowing machine. And while you master the Snatch and Clean in your studio and your fitness level is always improving the erg is still your enemy. We want to help you to help yourselves. Beach Crew is offering exciting classes specifically with the Cross Fitter in mind. We will show you how to get the most efficient work out of your erg pieces and drastically improve your aerobic threshold. Take a look at the options we have available below and see if one of them fits your needs.
