- COMPETITION PREP
To enter into the CFEA Competition Prep Cycle athletes must have completed the CFEA Proficiency Level Testing, which is an assessment of their current CrossFitting strengths and weaknesses. Following this, athletes receive personalised programming to follow for the next 8 weeks during supervised group sessions with expert coaches in each of the main area of CrossFit (weightlifting, gymnastics and monostructural). Athletes are able to target their weaknesses during these 16 sessions, which typically addressing the chinks in ones armour leads to improvements in CrossFitting across the board. The aim is to help athletes move up to the next fitness level through targeted training and expert coaching.Cost: $250
Coach(es): Various coaches plan, programme and coach these sessions. Each coach who leads this programme has not only their CrossFit Level 1 Trainer certification, but also various specialist coaching certifications in their specialty areas.
The endurance cycle includes 16 sessions, training 2x per week. Participants learn and focus on developing their skills in pose running through various drills and complete long, medium and short runs at various scenic locations around Auckland.Cost: $100
