I noticed that some Crossfits have classes that are an hour in length. In a post a while back some people stated that they often just do the WOD. During those 1 hours classes are you doing the WOD just dragging it out or are you adding warmups, cooldowns and stretching etc. Thanks for everything.

Yeah, warmup & stretch. Also any or all of the following:

-Technique work (low loads, no timer, just work on perfect form)
-Skills practice
-Focused work on weak areas or rehab needs or personal goals (or working toward the latest CF challenge)
-Talk with other people about training and nutrition stuff

I'm sure that's only a partial list, but maybe it gives you some ideas for starters. And I didn't even mention things like showing off, heckling (uh, I mean encouraging) others, or just playing. :happy:

Jason,
I doubt anyone who understands CrossFit is dragging out the WOD. Our classes are 1/2 an hour. That's not counting the warm up, which I recommend people do on their own before the class starts. On Saturday, we often stay a half hour afterwards to work on skills, play Hoover Ball or go down to the creek bed to throw heavy stuff. So while the "class" is a half hour we are often warming up and playing for another half hour to forty five minutes.

Ron - I think we are going to something like that here at HQ in March. You should come. It isn't a bad drive and Southwest Airlines are pretty cheap!

Ron,
Just like Seattle, we suffer every Saturday. The door is always open for you.

Yay! Now if I can convince the family it's just a normal Saturday drive. Nothing to fear, just a drive. . .400 miles to Santa Cruz!
Ramona may be a better idea for now, then SC in the spring!

Mike,
The door is always open for you, and there is always enough suffering to go around.

The suffering is like the loaves and fishes in the parable:When everyone had had their fill, there were still two baskets of leftovers (paraphrase) :proud:

It would be awesome to have you and Cody (and/or Beau) down on a saturday, Coach B!
