A day at the Dutch Lowy Seminar

We are just back from a day at Dutch Lowy's seminar held at Catalyst Athletics in Sunnyvale. It was an early start for the 2 hour drive to get there by 9am, but the girls coped well.

The seminar was great, lots of good programming info from both Dutch and Greg. We did some workout creation sessions and hit our own made up workout of the day, 5 Rounds For Time
7 Sandbag/Dumbell Cleans
10 Sandbag/Dumbell Step Ups
Matt: 3:25 with a Med Sandbag and Weight Bench Step Ups
Donna: 4:49 20# DB's and a 19" Box

The goal was a 4-6 minute workout so I was a little light or my step up was too low. Donna was pretty much spot on :-)

Then we talked a bit about the CrossFit Level 2, Trainers, Business and Community.

This seminar is well worth the time and effort. It provides a different perspective and fills in some holes, especially for trainers and affiliate owners, that the Level 1 doesn't cover in enough depth. Lowy Trainer Seminar: Coach Better Program Smarter"

Turns out Donna is on the wall of fame (or is that infamy) at Catalyst
