I am a personal trainer and found crossfit in my surfing and am intrigued. I like the idea of it but how do I mix it up so I can do a workout every day? That is one of the reasons I stop circuit training, I hate the days off. Any and all help would be great!

Try if for a few weeks, you will come to appreciate the rest day.

or search the archives for other workouts if you are not getting enough work done. Check out the competition section of the message board, search for something called painstorm.

Rest is great for recovery. Put you could use your off days to work on skills like pull-ups or surfing

WOD are how you become fit
Eating is why you become fit
Sleeping (REST) is when you become fit

I think i saw this on a bumper sticker or something, it almost applies here...

I'm not saying I would want to go all out the day after a workout (though sometimes I will). Is there any active rest workouts?

perhaps the gentleman found this site by "surfing" the net as opposed to riding the waves?

in which case his "surfing" would not require any specific training.:g:

Instead of a rest day, experiment with an active recovery day, ie: anything in a low power or oxidative mode like an easy 20-30 min. run or maybe some skill transfer exercises for the oly lifts. See what works. As I always tell my clients: "You are an experiment of one".
