Kettlebell Swing Skills Class! 10-5-17

IMG_5377.JPG

Join us Thursday October 5th @ 6:30pm for a 1hr. Kettlebell Swing Skills Class!

As many of you know, I attended an amazing Kettlebell Seminar this past Saturday led by Jeff Martone. Jeff is the founder of "Tactical Athlete", Kettlebell record holder, holds the title "Master of Sport" and is considered to be one of the "Founding Fathers" of the modern kettlebell movements we all know and love. 

We covered the Russian & American style single kettlebell swing, double kettlebell swing, single arm cleans, jerks, and snatches as well as double kettlebell cleans, jerks and snatches. We also went over the Turkish Get Up and discussed the many ways in which this movement can be used not only in the gym but real world applications as well. 

After attending this seminar I have a new found appreciation for kettlebell work. We all know that kettlebell swings are a great posterior chain developer but they are can so much more!

Join me Thursday October 5th @ 6:30pm for a 1hr. class on the Kettlebell Swing! We will break the movement down, work on drills, tweak your swing to make it more efficient and get the most out of every swing.

Athlete of the Month- KAT!

Meet Kat! She is one of the most hard working and dedicated people we know. When she puts her mind to something she is all in. It has been so much fun watching Kat become stronger and faster since she joined OIDN. Keep on rockin it Kat!

1. When did you start at ODIN? And what was your first impression?
I took the Roots class in March 2016 and then started coming to classes in April. My first impression of ODIN… fun, professional, accessible, supportive and family environment. Still holds true!

2. What changes have you seen in yourself since starting at ODIN?
Because of my background in endurance sports and the fire service, I had always considered myself an athlete. However, I don’t think I was ever truly as fit as I have become since starting at ODIN. I am more educated and aware of things like mobility, nutrition, recovery and balancing my workouts… just to name a few. I have become stronger and faster ( I just PR’ed an 8 mile run in a time of 55:02!). I now have a better sense of my own body image too… and what it means to be healthy and beautiful. I am more flexible than I have ever been! I feel like I am a more well-rounded athlete now.

3. What is your favorite thing about ODIN?
The PEOPLE! Coaches and Members alike… and the kiddos too! Being surrounded and supported by such an amazing group of people is so empowering and motivating. I love bringing my son too b/c I feel likes it's so good for him to see people and families working out together, challenging themselves and cheering for each other.

4. What keeps you committed and coming back?
First and foremost, the people. But, the gains and growth are so visible/tangible… it keeps me challenged, as I strive to ‘master’ each new skill and hone my techniques. There is always something new to learn. There is always room for improvement.

5. What advice would you give to anyone looking to start CrossFit?
Go to ODIN! Take the Roots class. Any mystery, misconceptions or intimidation you may have about Crossfit will quickly vanish… under the knowledgeable guidance of the coaches. Once you start, you will be hooked.

Athlete of the Month- Kevin!

When did you start at ODIN? And what was your first impression?

August 2016.  My first thought was how welcoming and friendly everyone was.  When I moved back to the area, I was searching for a new gym and dropped into one of the Sunday classes.  I think I was told and forgot everyone’s names in the first five minutes.  After that class I knew Odin was the place for me.

What changes have you seen in yourself since starting at ODIN?

One of the biggest changes has been my technique and flexibility.  I had only been doing CrossFit for a few months before Odin, but the coaches here really helped me improve and become more comfortable with all the different movements.

What is your favorite thing about ODIN?

The friendly competition.  It’s never a race to be first or the best during a WOD, but there are people in your class that you can push yourself to keep up with.  They’ll be cheering you on to get one more rep before the timer hits zero.

Oh and the post workout beer :)

What keeps you committed and coming back?

The satisfaction of stepping into Odin and finding myself doing things I never thought I could.

What advice would you give to anyone looking to start CrossFit?

Be patient.  I struggled (and continue to) with some of the movements and lifts when I started.  It can be frustrating but over time when you see yourself improving, you’ll be hooked.

 

Want to see what all the excitement is about? Book a consult to discuss ways to get started @ ODIN! Time to get up and get moving!

Athlete of the Month- Tracy!

1. When did you start at ODIN? And what was your first impression?

I came to a couple of WOD for Warriors events with Team RWB in 2015 and loved it. The members were all really nice and very encouraging. The workouts were fun and the coaches were knowledgeable about each aspect of the workout and the scaling options. The vibe before and after the workout was friendly and chill, and during the workout it was all business, which I loved.
Bill and I started Roots in May 2016 with Jessica. I was already sold so I crossed my fingers that Bill would like it, too. Of course he loved it and here we are!

2. What changes have you seen in yourself since starting at ODIN?

Physically, I'm losing body fat and gaining muscle. As a 'mature athlete' (old lady, lol!), I feel like gaining muscle is a huge accomplishment. My upper body strength has always been pretty poor, and I'm making gains slowly but surely. I would have never lifted weights on my own, but I really happy that I'm finally getting a little definition in my arms.
Mentally, I dig a little deeper than before. In addition to Crossfit, I ride and trail run, but I never worried about pace or setting goals. I would just run when I felt good, walk when I was tired, and finish whenever. I definitely think it's important to have activities or sports that you do for pure enjoyment and trail running will always be that for me. But I had some cycling goals where I blew off my training and then didn't have the mental toughness to 'suffer better.' I definitely need to get stronger in this, but I have since  completed WODs where if I was suffering during a ride as much as I was during the WOD, I would have absolutely quit. And there have been a couple of running club workouts where I saw that I actually can run faster than I thought for longer than I thought (or wanted!). It was brutal and ugly, but I held on. Thanks, Coach Lunderwoman!

3. What is your favorite thing about ODIN?

The Odin community is the complete package. The environment is completely positive with coaches and members encouraging you no matter what and pushing you when you need it. These are people I love working out with and then hanging out with afterwards. 
I thought it was great that many of us came in to help during the gym renovations... and even better that Allison and Jason asked - because they knew they could count on us.
The coaches are awesome; it's clear that they know their stuff and love what they do. The holiday WODs, Friday Night Lights during the Open, and running club are all fun ways to connect us as a group while moving us forward towards our fitness goals. And their commitment to continuing education gives us members confidence that the programming and coaching is top notch.

4. What keeps you committed and coming back?

Getting fitter and stronger. I used to hate burpees but I know that doing them will make me a better athlete so I try to make it to every workout that has them. While I don't love them now, I don't groan when I see them in a workout. Wallballs are a short girl's nemesis, but I'll keep plugging away at them and one day I'll own those suckers. I have a list that I'm working down. Most of them are matters of gaining strength, like pull ups and push ups,  and some are skills, like double unders... and that damn snatch. But I know that each week I'll have another opportunity to improve and check something off the list.

5. What advice would you give to anyone looking to start CrossFit?

Just put yourself out there and be willing to try it; you'll be amazed at what you can do if you're willing to get outside your comfort zone. And definitely don't be afraid or embarrassed to scale movements, because almost everyone scales at some point. Odin isn't a room full of machines and mirrors and people you don't talk to. Everyone is going to say Hi to you, we'll all work our butts off together, and then we'll all laugh and talk afterwards. And before you know it, these will be some of the people you most look forward to seeing each week.

Athlete of the Month- Malissa!

Athlete of the Month- Malissa!

Meet Malissa, our Athlete of the Month for May! Malissa came to ODIN a year and a half ago with no strength & conditioning experience and had never tried CrossFit. She began her journey in our Roots- Intro to CrossFit program where she was slowly introduced to the movements and workout styles. Today Malissa is a stronger, healthier and more confident version of herself. She is dedicated and consistent in the gym and focuses on her nutrition at home. She truly embodies what ODIN is all about; living an active and healthy life style and enjoying your fitness. We are all so proud of you Malissa and look forward to helping you accomplish all your 2017 goals!

1.      When did you start at ODIN? And what was your first impression?
I joined Odin in September 2015. My first impression was all of the members and coaches were welcoming and friendly. Everyone was laughing and looked happy. The coaches were extremely helpful in scaling the workout for me and making sure I had correct form. I felt really comfortable.


2.      What changes have you seen in yourself since starting at ODIN?
I have changed physically and mentally since I joined Odin. I have a lot more determination and confidence in myself, when I want to give up I push myself more (sometimes with the help of coaches and Odin members), I have gotten stronger and I’m healthier. I really push myself to stay positive (like when I’m struggling to get a double-under and I want to throw in the towel) I stayed positive and now I can do a few!  Positive self-talk helps me get through the difficult WODs/movements (running):)


3.      Why ODIN?
My favorite thing at Odin is weight lifting. Odin offers a Barbell class on Sunday that focuses on Olympic weightlifting movements. In this class the coaches really break down the movement to make sure our form is correct.  This class has made me a better weight lifter. Love this class.

4.      What keeps you committed and coming back?
The feeling I got when getting a new PR (personal rep) doing squat cleans in the CrossFit Open 17.3. I missed a few lifts and my Odin friend/coaches kept cheering me on and I ended up getting 2 reps.
The positive change I see in myself keeps me committed.
My Odin family keeps me coming back.

5.      What advice would you give to anyone looking to start CrossFit?
Just try it. I was nervous and really unsure about CrossFit but it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made for myself. I started in The Roots class (beginner’s class) which introduced the movements I would be doing in the workouts. YOU CAN DO IT!
