As part of the PeassantMan experience, we've set up a FREE Crossfit clinic. This is open to everyone, regardless if you plan to attend PeasantMan or not. Everyone in this clinic will be a triathlete or to-be triathlete.
The clinic is lead by a nationally renowned and certified Crossfit and Crossfit Endurance coach. Also joining her are two DCTri Club triathlete-crossfitters (Simon H and Mark Z). The clinic will cover Crossfit for triathlon philosophies. It will be held on Sat 24 March from 1:15 pm to 2:45 pm at Patriot Crossfit in Va (www.patriotcrossfit.com). You will do a workout, so wear clothes that you will sweat in. The workout will be very beginner level and scaled as needed. Change and shower facilities are available if you want to bring a change of clothes, etc.
If you ever thought about using Crossfit for general fitness, triathlons, offseason workouts, in-season workouts, or some hybrids, this is your opportunity to do it for free. This is just a FYI seminar with no sales pitch since we are about PeasantMan and not about getting you to pay for some gym membership.
To sign up, please email Simon at (talksimon at gmail dot com). Include any specific questions you may have for the seminar.

We have rescheduled this to Sunday April 1 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.
To sign up for the clinic, please email Simon at (talksimon at gmail dot com). Include any specific questions you may have for the seminar.

To answer a question on the clinic, it is the same day as Cherry Blossom 10 miler (well after the race). You do not have to do the workout and can attend and just listen. Or do whatever portion of the workout you feel comfortable with. Thanks.
To answer another question. Tes Salb http://www.potomaccrossfit.com/coaches2/tes-salb/ will be the presenter at the clinic. She's one of the most experienced Crossfit coaches in the Mid-Atlantic region, is on the national staff for Crossfit Endurance, has coached several triathletes, and leads the new PCF Endurance program http://www.endurance.potomaccrossfit.com/.
We'll be there to help answer questions and demo the exercises. Thanks for the interest and sign-ups so far! Got em and will send something out tonight. Simon
The event is this Sunday, so sign up folks :)
You mean Mark Z and Simon are going to be there to assist. I might have to look into this.
Defnitely do it Hugh, but leave the wetsuit and the cup at home. It's not that kind of crossfit clinic.
Hoping to make it, if I get back from Lake Anna weekend in time. (Lord knows I could use some muscles...)
I plan to be there, with Shateela
Thanks guys. Ed some folks gain muscle but a lot of others just get cut over time. Really cut. Sexy-swim-suit-wtf-cut.
Got 30 athletes which might overcrowd other gyms but not Patriot so if you want to join no worries. Good chance to meet other athletes with similar minded potential philosophies.
We realize that some traditionalists are very wary of Crossfit, even hostile. This has recently been caught on video:

35 athletes are attending - we still have room for more so if you decide last minute to come just send an email and show up. It's at www.patriotcrossfit.com at 1 pm today. Chill out after Cherry Blossom and hear something neat.
That was fun and intense. Liked those gymnast ring pull-ups. And the group session makes it more like a team sport.
We've put together recap of the clinc. Click on the below url and enjoy :)
Thanks to everyone who helped put this on...it was definitely intense, but also a lot of fun. Ouch!
