6 weeks to a faster 2k Row

DO YOU WANT TO IMPROVE YOUR 2K ROWING TIME?

We love the rowing machine as it is an excellent tool to develop your engine and same time get a full body workout.

The 2k row is the gold standard in Olympic and competitive rowing and not a surprise it comes back on a regular basis in our workouts.

Our Wodder of the Month

Our Wodder of the Month

Ian started training at ChalkBox about 2.5 months ago. This is what he got to say: “I would recommend ChalkBox to anyone who wants to get fit in a great environment. My confidence has changed since I have been at the box. I do not worry about the Wod’s as I know that I will be able to do them or a scaled version.”

Coach Sarah: Plans are easy to make but hard to stick to by!

Everyone has a goal in mind that they are working towards. In order to reach it, a lot of people will plan ahead for it. Still though a lot of people will fail and simply not reach what they are trying to achieve. The separating factor between those successful and those not, is simply called consistency. This is what you are consistently doing day in and day out. This consistency needs to be applied across three important in crossfit - Nutrition, Recovery and Training.

The program will provide you with the movement competency, structural strength and integrity that will allow you to handle more advanced movement patterns. More importantly the extra strength work will keep your body balanced and injury free.


CHALKLIFT Sessions

CHALKLIFT Sessions

There is separate programming for those involved in ChalkLift, and it meets various times during the week. Sarah said the main benefit is the value of knowing how to do the lifts correctly. “(Members) just have a greater heightened sense of awareness of the lifts and a greater appreciation for how challenging they are,” she said.

Are you still hanging?

Are you still hanging?

Hanging can be divided into:

1. Passive Hanging - relaxed, deactivated, targets more of the passive structural integrity components than the more 'muscular heavy' hangs. It is where more often than not we will start with a beginner. (certain issues with shoulder health and integrity might require we start with active hangs for example)

2. Active Hanging - selective activation of the pattern, engaging musculature and minimizing the demands on passive structural integrity while maximizing the active-component demand and adaptation. Active hangs are a type of strength work. More specifically - Straight Arm Scapular Strength.

Change is coming!

Change is coming!

We will be adding new sessions, more classes and new memberships. As always the focus will be on supporting our members in their fitness journey and giving them a great experience in every session.
