The CrossFit Mission Gorge Endurance class is based on improving your work capacity across all metabolic pathways. We are not like your traditional training program that tries to get in as many miles as possible each week. We focus on form, speed, and incorporate distance to build capacity as needed. Nutrition, flexibility, advice on shoes, and supplemental training is all part of our program.
This Class meets on Wednesdays from 6-7 pm, and coached by Betsy Woods. Check out her endurance bio.:
Betsy began running competitively in college at Butler University on the Track and Field (distance) and Cross Country Teams (1998-2001). Upon graduation, she continued running in races, and eventually broadened her sport to triathlon. She has competed in many races, covering all distances, (marathon, 1/2 marathon, 10k, 5k, trail, 70.3 1/2 Ironman triathlon, Olympic triathlon, sprint triathlon, and everything in between) over the course of the last 11 years. She has been coached in the endurance sports of swimming, biking, and running by some of the best coaches in the country, including USAT 2011 National Coach of the Year, Cindi Bannink. In an attempt to build more strength into her training, Betsy was introduced to CrossFit in 2010, and was hooked from the start. She began coaching athletes as a Level I Certified Trainer in 2011, utilizing both CrossFit and CrossFit Endurance programming and training methodology of reducing volume, evaluating running technique, optimizing nutrition (during and after racing) and adding intensity and power to her own training with much success and personal records.Still very much involved in the triathlon and endurance community, her passion is endurance sports, and her experience training and racing enhance her coaching style. Betsy hopes to inspire, lead, motivate, and educate others with any training/racing goal, whether it is their first 5k or fiftieth.
