Another week of CrossFit workouts is behind now. This one was much easier than the last one. I think I’ve learned my lessons – I’ve listened to my coach and did take it a bit easier this time. And I felt much better afterwards, of course. I’m starting to like it!Read more
It’s about 2AM now and I can’t sleep. At the moment the pain in my shoulders is overwhelming. Especially the left one. I don’t remember when anything has hurt this much physically. Even when I broke my finger two years ago, the pain wasn’t as bad. Is this really part of the process for everybody, or is there something broken? Was the 10! workout we did with a 20kg bar too much? Really?! What can I do to this agony? I mean I can’t sleep because of the pain… Is this really worth it?Read more
The WODconnect team got a new member last spring. Sami, 32-year-old graphic designer, has been working on WODconnect for a while now, and has been interested in CrossFit from the very beginning. To get things going, he reserved a place to September’s On Ramp course at our home gym CrossFit Herttoniemi. His CrossFit journey has now started, and we are keen to hear his thoughts and also want to share his experiences with you in a series of blogposts. We hope his experiences will give answers to people not familiar with CrossFit, support other beginners and also bring up subjects that are important to all CrossFitters, gyms and coaches that are making those experiences happen all the time. Go Sami!Read more
Yesterday evening (Thursday 31st of July) we sent out the bills for August and had some problems with it. We accidentally double billed some of the membership subscriptions and sent a few 0 sum bills.
It took us 40 minutes to fix everything, and all duplicate bills and 0 sum bills have now been removed. We are sorry for the trouble, and we will make sure this will not happen again.
We did a short video interview of Jonne Koski during his and Mikko Salo’s seminar at CrossFit 10K. Find out how the fittest man in Europe has been preparing for the challenge, what he thinks about coaching and what he wants to do in the future. Two things we can tell you right away: he’s ready for The CrossFit Games 2014 and wants to beat Rich Froning.Read more
The long-awaited Games week is finally here! Even if you’re not in California, you can watch the events live here. To our delight, The BOXROX magazine published an European version of the event schedule. As we are located in Finland and so are many of our users, we wanted to make a version with Finnish times. Some of the events will be shown when it’s night time here, but who cares? At least we will set up a screen at the gym and gather together to enjoy the show.
