What Is Your Potential?

The High Peformance Pyramid.  Do you have what it takes? (image courtesy of Wellness Vancouver)

Hey Zoners!

Your Coaches and Apprentices want to know who among you is interested in doing the CrossFit Open competition in 2013.  This is because we’re already structuring our High Performance program to field an amazing team and individuals for next year!  If you are interested, now is the time to get started.  We will be evaluating all the interested athletes and helping you decide what you need to work on, as well as guiding you through WODs with the purpose of being the best athlete you can be for next season.

Do you want to see what YOUR potential is? Has taking CrossFit to the next level and seeing where you can be for the 2013 Open competition peaked your interest?  If you participate in this High Performance program, by no means are you locked in to having to compete when the time comes.  But… if you just want to work out with some of the top athletes in the Zone, be sure to come out to our Advanced class on Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m.

If this sounds like something for you, please contact Deanna by email at deanna@crossfitzone.ca

* Interested athletes need to have a basic understanding of technique and movement to attend HP sessions. The feedback in the class is based on advanced technique, not basic cues (ie.  not simple things like keep your back straight, keep your knees out.).  If you are unsure whether you fit this criteria, please ask your Coach.
