The MAD Coaches work with our Athletes to help meet their fitness goals. Many of those goals are to do well at the CrossFit Open – even if they are not going to Regionals.
The picture above shows just a few of our athlete’s improvement from the 2014 CrossFit Open to 2015 CrossFit Open.
The numbers speak for themselves.
Athletes are made in the off-season. Are you ready to start your off-season now?

The open is fast upon us and mad athletes from around the world are taking it on and leveling up each week. As soon as the CrossFit Games website allows for custom leaderboards we will make on for all of the MADathletes competing in the open.
MAD Athletes and coaches getting some junk yard dog warm up before the smash.
They method you use to warm up is extremely important. Too many athletes gloss over the warm up and this will most likely put them at greater risk for injury. I have heard athletes say “a lion never warms up going for the kill”. Yep, this is true, but a lion never did a max snatch or “Fran”.
With the proper warm up / dynamic movement prep (DMP), you are preparing your central nervous system for explosiveness, your joints for smooth movement, your muscles for maximum contraction and your mind for the event. That mental portion can prove valuable when you are competing. The sheer routine of your warm up can get your mind set for that event and dial in your focus to laser sharp levels. Now since most of you are not in the gym doing solely slow movements and you get your body to explode quite a bit this DMP is very important.
You are also giving yourself a layer of protection against injury. There are no guarantees when it comes to injury prevention but as an athlete you should be doing what you can to stay durable and ready to wod again.
Finally think about this, your movement prep can vary depending on the type of wod you will be doing. You may need to get that heart rate up quite a bit and recover before the wod or you may not. Keep that in mind also.
Now. Go hit it.
