Training gives us an outlet for suppressed energies created by stress and thus tones the spirit just as exercise conditions the body.

While time spent listening to Matt Swift discuss any topic is enlightening, having the opportunity to spend the weekend considering the unique requirements of athletes over the age of 40 as part of the CrossFit Specialty Course: Masters was particularly inspiring . . . With any luck, if we are not already, we will all eventually be part of that cohort and it is important that we are both aware of the continuing (and indeed increasing) importance of training and cognisant of the factors necessary for the long term success of those athletes . . . For those who may have been hoping for the focus to be on slowing down and pulling back, unfortunately, that is not the case.  As always, if you can imagine a reasonably high bar for athletic application and coaching competence, Matt always pushes it a bit higher . . .

To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.

52 Pick Up

Shuffle a deck of playing cards. Turn over the first card in the deck. For numbered cards (2 to 10), the number on the card determines the number of repetitions to be completed and the suit of the card determines the movement. For face cards (Jack, Queen, King) and Aces, complete the movement/exercise and repetitions/distance which relates to that card. Once you have completed a card, turn over the next card. Complete all 52 cards in the fastest time possible. Movements to be determined on a class by class basis.
