Hi coach, questioning here since you're specifically positive about crossfit for athleticism
Moronic question but I didn't have that possibility until like 5 minutes ago. I have 2 options, first one is $150 a month, second one is twice that amount for a crossfit box. These are month to month renewal, no engagement
option 1: open gym, everything included rogue platforms chalk etc. very solid gym (no sleds nor chains tho) and I wanted to run 915 but I'm uncertain about my ability to clean, and learn how to pull better by myself. Thought about running it later but I think I have imbalances.
My total is 930/188lb bodyweight, been lifting for 3.5 years. Goal is to reach 1000 before 2016 and steadily gain a couple of pounds a month just like I did since this summer
option 2: crossfit box, 100% coaching in small groups focused towards Olympic weightlifting and conditioning, most of the time one day heavy (the guy showed me their template it's basically one squat day one deadlift day up to a few heavy sets then a WoD) and one day more like bodyweight with rope + kettlebell ring work and stuff.
Coaches are miles above me in terms of strength so they would very probably know better and I never had real life coaching (just a friend writing me my first programs, but only his bench is better than mine now)
Which one would you pick?
(The question is essentially: is group coaching with advanced lifters, with unlimited access, worth an extra $150 a month?)
