Re: CrossFit On-Ramp Curriculum Published for Free

You guys, this On Ramp is the real deal. Nicki generously shared it and we're about to start our 4th month with it. The people come out of it prepared, moving good, and comfortable with CF's programming - chippers, rounds for time, AMRAP. They know how to row, load a bar, - they are self sufficient.

We had 3 the first month, 7 the second, 16 this month and expect to fill at 20 for June. This really is the best way to introduce people to CF, its kind, gentle, fun, and safe. The intensity ramps up over the month and the groups really develop friendships and community.

NorCal hit a home run with this one and we are all so lucky that they are sharing it.

Thanks again Nicki!

Laurie

We will be implementing it July 1st. This is exactly what we have been trying to figure out how to do ourselves and now we don't have to recreate the wheel. Thanks a bunch to Nicki, Robb, and Greg for sharing.

Re: CrossFit On-Ramp Curriculum Published for Free

Fantastic article. We'll be running with this in July also, and combing this with a member postcard challenge(wfs link to Nikki's site) also. Thanks Nikki, Greg, and Robb! (that's not Robb factorial)

Re: CrossFit On-Ramp Curriculum Published for Free

This is great information, no doubt about it.

But it seems like this is a solution the the problem of managing new members when your number of new members gets to a certain point.

I, for one, wish that I had the problem of too many new members to manage. Unfortunately that isn't the case. But if/when it is, I will definitely use this system, or at least parts of it.

That's what I figured, but wanted to be sure.
Thanks

Re: CrossFit On-Ramp Curriculum Published for Free

Thanks for the excellent resource!
Hey Greg, I just finished your book on Olympic Weightlifting.
It is incredibly well-written and informative; the fault corrections are extremely helpful to us, and your book is kept by the platform for reference everyday!
I highly recommend it to all those who want to improve their Oly lifts.

Re: CrossFit On-Ramp Curriculum Published for Free

Very cool, Greg. It reminds me of the thread on how to go about teaching the 9 core movements in an week or two but is much, much more thorough.

I was just thinking last night that I needed to start tinkering with something like this.

Re: CrossFit On-Ramp Curriculum Published for Free

I'm a PDR coach with Tony Blauer and in our much smaller forum and team of coaches we see this same sharing of information. Its really great to see this here as well. I have 2 great ppts I've gotten off this forum and now this. As a new partner in an affiliate before moving from the park and into our box this will be a great tool in the months to come and probably has saved us from some big and costly mistakes and most important saved us from turning off some people to CF. thanks again its really great stuff and a great article.

Re: CrossFit On-Ramp Curriculum Published for Free

This is excellent. Thank you. Are these 12 days consecutive or do they get rest days?
