What a typical day at CrossFit Mallow is like:
Imagine stepping through the door of a gym and walking in into a welcoming, friendly, encouraging atmosphere where everyone is on first name terms.
Written up on the whiteboard is the workout of the day(WOD). You and everyone else participating in the class will be doing some form of this workout, scaled to each individual’s ability and fitness level. The Coach takes the class through a warm up and teaches correct technique on the movements in the workout. After a few minutes of stretching and mobility work it’s time for the workout to begin.
The first part of the workout is aimed at improving the Athletes strength, the second part is for improving metabolic conditioning (cardio).
The Coach shouts 3…2...1… Go! and everyone gets moving. The Coach offers encouragement and technique cues to the athletes during the class which usually lasts between 45-50 minutes. Beginner athletes are grouped together in the ‘Novice’ level class and keep the intensity at a comfortable pace.
Everyone that trains at CrossFit Mallow is referred to as an Athlete regardless of current ability. Athletes encourage and support each other and every little success is applauded and cheered from the rooftops. The aim is not to be the best, but to improve and move forward every time you train.
