American History, and you.



It sometimes comes to my attention that due to the fact that people lead busy lives, they must not really know about the local resources available to them. It has to be.
What am I talking about? I'm talking about learning how to row from SFCF's own Erin Cafaro. Yeah, yeah, she won a Gold Medal in Bejing. Yeah, and was the national champion at Cal. Oh, but did you know she just sorta created American history by winning the first EVER Gold Medal in the Pair (think partnered suffering) at the recent World Championships in Poland about a month ago? And, she doubled up in the 8 too? You didn't know she was a double World Champion?
No?
Yeah, and you get a chance to actually row, with her. And what's freaky cool, is that on the second day of the seminar, YOU get to head out to one of the coolest places to row on the west coast (with Erin) and you get to actually ROW on the water, like a real rower. Did you know people pays thousands of dollars to spend a day skiing with Olympians (who don't have 400 FGB like Erin btw)? YOU get the chance to actually learn to row from a very gifted instructor, and an American History Machine. Doode, she can autograph your puke stained shirt! You might learn something and get to hold the "biscuit". What, you've never held a Gold Medal? You've never been coached by a Current World Champ?

Dewd, learning to row like this is really cool. Trust me.

But seriously, your rowing sucks. It does, and your crappy technique is killing your times, and you are loosing serious fitness points.

The Crossfit Rowing Cert can be signed up for here.
It's the weekend of October 24, and 25th.
ERIN won't be coaching it again out here for a while. And we lose her to the competitive rowing season soon. Don't loose your chance, then complain when you suck at crossfit rowing pieces. Remember one of our mandates for attaining elite fitness to learn new sports. So come learn a new sport already, and hang out with a brilliant rowing instructor and an excellent coach.

My main goal is not to flip the boat and embarrass myself... though im ready to swallow the pride if necessary.

E-Caf rulez.

Erin's a beast. Anyone who hasn't rowed on the water OWES it to themself to do this cert. It's a great experience - and once you can feel the boat moving under you the erg all of a sudden makes a lot more sense...

J.D. said...

oh and not to pimp my sister out... but if you read this blog and want a cert near you on rowing contact her! she is working with c2 and CF to do these all over now, so far LA, Austin, and SF.

Kstar,
My name is Eric Jensen, I live in MN. I am a tri guy and ultra runner following BMack's program at CFE. I saw your series on knee stuff in the journal. Any rec's for a 38 yo with a recurrance of OsgoodSchlatter pain at the tibial tuberosity that has been asymptomatic for around 24 years? Thanks for your blog and journal articles. Great info!

Erin is a beast, but I'm still hoping to reach this CF status!

Has this become a test of will?

Dan said...

If it has, it's only because A (either "anonymous" or "a**hole" - take your pick) made it one.

My PS3 will work at home just fine.When I connect it to the internet it works but when I connect at college it signs me out of the playstation network and will not allow me to play. It could be because they want me to download something but I can't it is something that you have to download to access the campus network but It does not recognize the PS3. School is boring without it please help!

A little off topic, Guys... I have a question. Last weekend I played around this site:
[url=http://www.rivalspot.com]Rivalspot.com - Xbox tournaments for money[/url]
They say you can play online FIFA Soccer game tournaments on any console for cash... had anyone tried that before? Looks like a cool idea...
Are there any other sites where you can play sports games for real moneys? I Googled and found only Bringit.com and Worldgaming.com but it looks these guys don't specialize in sport gamez. Any suggestions?

For an elite CF affiliate, pushing almost two months for a blog post is ridiculous. Someone has to post something!
