So after checking out some of the boxes, we made our way back to The Church Of Pain! This is their first "box" is is actually an old church and theater that they renovated to suit their needs. This is where I would hold the first seminar. It had four different gyms inside this one location, so they could train several different classes simultaneously. They did not always run the same WOD, they had different themes to choose from, so if you wanted strength, mobility, or conditioning, you had many options. All of their clients have the option to choose which location they can train as well. So you aren't stuck at the same place all the time.
Business was definitely getting done as hard training was the theme of the day. Hundreds of athletes walk through this door daily. This location is not far from the centrum and is situated in an interesting part of town they affectionately call, "Little Mogadishu". There is a dense population of somalians in the area and they seem to have grown fond of the CrossFitters running their streets to chase fitness. It wasn't always so pleasant, though, as there may have been a slight altercation or two early on when the business was building. Now its just another day in the hood as hundreds of white Danes run like Vampire Slayers through Somalia. It was a long flight and a long day, time for sleep before the big day tomorrow.
Rawhawk was an explosive athlete, wish I had used a better camera than my iPhone.
After many hours training through warm ups, mobility, general and specific drills regarding different training modalities, intense gymnastic exercises and classic weightlifting, we had some fun with dumbbells and kettlebells and a few other fun toys.
And on with Day 2. A new group of highly talented athletes came today to a different location, and learned some similar information, and some new. This day consisted of all trainers from CrossFit Copenhagen, while day one was members and trainers from all over. We had the opportunity to discuss programming in more detail and talk about many other things they had on their minds. All in all, both days had amazing people and hard workers that made me very proud.
