How A Professional Coach Can Help You In The CrossFit Open

17 Jul

Training for the 2020 CrossFit Games Open has started. Thousands of athletes will be signing up to win the coveted title of Fittest on Earth. Are you prepared to stand out and win? Are you being professionally coached?

As CrossFit evolves and the competitive base grows exponentially, it’s becoming increasingly critical to find not only a professional coach, but the right coach to enable your success. If you have competitive CrossFit ambitions, you need to be professionally coached.

Despite the fact that the CrossFit Open seems to always be right around the corner (especially this year with two Opens due to the changes in the CrossFit season), a professional coach can help to ensure you are prepared for the challenges ahead.

Here are just a few of the ways our professional coaching staff can help you:

  • Control Your Training Volume and Intensity –  This time of year, many amateur athletes increase their training volume in a last ditch effort to ready themselves for the CrossFit Open. This is a critical mistake that often leads to burnout and injury during the Open workouts. Big Dawgs Coaches are trained to dial the program intensity around competitive events like the Open in order to set their clients up for success, not injury.
  • Optimize Your Recovery  Recovery after training sessions and the CrossFit Open workouts are critical to your success. Big Dawgs Coaches recognize this and place special emphasis on recovery practices tailored to your athletic needs.
  • Train Skills and Weaknesses  Feeling uncomfortable in a specific skill or movement? Working with a Coach will help you strengthen those skills and shore up those weaknesses, boosting your Open performance.
  • Dialing in Nutritional Practices – Sound nutritional practices and food hygiene are vital to athletic performance. While some principles of good nutrition are universal, there are some strategies and tips you can use to specifically boost your CrossFit Open Performance.

While it may take some time to fully realize your true athletic potential, it’s best that you start your competitive training journey the right way. Start today with a company with an extensive track record of success in preparing athletes for the CrossFit Games.

Our coaches have trained countless CrossFit Games veterans and champions, including 2007 Fittest on Earth James FitzGerald, 2017 Fittest Woman in America Tennil Reed, and CrossFit Games veterans Jamie Hagiya, Amanda Goodman, Marcus Filly and Tommy Vinas.
