CrossFit Mission Gorge Endurance Team- Why and What

CFE at Mission Gorge is expanding to two nights a week.  We are going to hold class on Tuesday and Thursday evening at 6 pm!

Our CrossFit Endurance program is designed to help you perform better in your next race.  Our training is a non-traditional approach to endurance-based training.  Our programming will consist of the most aggressive and proven fundamentals of sports science, exercise physiology, nutrition and athletic training protocols.

We will combine strength and conditioning into our endurance program to ensure proper satiability, balance and recovery.  Our passion is endurance sports and our goal is to guide you to a better time with safe and efficient technique.   These techniques are not for everyone.  If you are not willing to grow physically and mentally to reach your full potential, this is not the right program for you.

The traditional approach to running or training for a marathon revolves around long slow distances that are pre-programmed.  We focus on eliminating volume training while increasing intensity.  This increased intensity is an extremely important piece to the puzzle that many endurance athletes are missing out on.  It is not easy and requires you to give it your all every time.  However, CrossFit Endurance programming, like CrossFit itself, starts with technique, then adds intensity and volume only after the technique is sound.  We spend time each week focusing on your foot strike, hip position, core involvement, lean, and wasted movement to help you become more efficient and avoid nagging runner injuries.

Another important aspect is to combine speed and power, which are critical components to success in the endurance world.  Our approach has been proven to increase performance while decreasing recovery time, reduce injury, promote preservation of lean tissue and create more sustainable performance.

To get more specific, traditional long-slow-distance athletes who want to train with CrossFit Endurance need to re-train their way of thinking, and adjust both programs into their training schedule to optimize success.  The first way athletes accomplish this is through eliminating the long slow distance training.  If one truly enjoys running distance, and has the desire to include it into his/her training, the results of the programming will be affected, and it is not truly CFE.  Others may have concerns with not running 13.1 miles in training before running the same distance in a race, but we suggest that before you make judgments and doubt the training, try it!  If an athlete is pushing his/her limits on 5ks and 10ks, breaking personal records and getting stronger, we promise that you will not have an issue running 13.1 miles or 26 miles and 385 yards.

This program is about you, and our goal is to inspire, lead and educate with care, sincerity and a relentless motivation to finally get you where you want to go.

Below are a few success stories that people have received with the CrossFit Training methodology, and we encourage you to look them over and do your own research, as well.

“I know that my opinion will garner criticism from the multi-sport world, and that’s okay. But I challenge those who are skeptical, or believe they “know better” to get over themselves and make an effort to learn about CFE and CF.”

http://www.maplegrovebarefootguy.com/2011/08/crossfit-endurance-7-months-later.html

“After running a few marathon-plus distance events, I've really bought into the idea that you don't need to put in high mileage to run high mileage races.  But that doesn't mean I don't miss LSD-style running.  Occasionally it's nice to go out and put in some miles.  Again, you can get burnt out doing everything at full blast.  You need to stop and smell the roses once and a while.”

“I was running 3-5 miles at a slow pace.... until I picked up CrossFit Endurance...I crossed the finish line in 4 hours, 12 minutes, and 38 seconds. A full half hour faster than last time. To say I owe this improvement entirely to

CFE training is in no way an overstatement.”
