Daily WODs will not be regularly posted, as they are now maintained in our Outlook calendars here at work. WODs may be posted in bulk here on the site at the end of the week, or they may not. This site is mostly used as a WOD database now, and in the future I would like to create an actual database of WODs from this site. We’ve made over 1000 posts, and a large majority of them are unique workouts. The goal would be to have drop-down menus with all the different movements, and if you select one movement the search will show workouts that have used that movement. Choose two movements, and you’ll see workouts that used both of those movements.
Beyond that realm, I would like to create a WOD generator that works in a similar way. A user would choose one or more muscle groups to work coupled with an aerobic pathway, and the site would generate a complete workout which could be tailored from there.
We are still going strong here at CrossFit CENTCOM, our core group is ~8 people and we continue to learn and improve daily, even after 7 years of “doing the same thing” which is more accurately described as 7 years of not doing the same thing. Our 1100 power-hour is for everyone, and at the same time it is not for everyone. The mid-day heat is intense. Less dedicated people don’t want to give up their lunch hour. Some have meetings to attend. The group that is out there everyday, rain or shine, is a very dedicated group and has made their personal fitness a permanent part of their lives. In the CF Level 1 course, they talk about the three levels of the wellness chart, where you are either getting worse, staying the same, or getting better. The people you see during our only workout of the day are not there to “maintain”, they are there to keep improving themselves and finding new limits.
Our equipment is now permanently outside, as it has been for the last 1.5 years. We now have a large 20ft shipping container with all our gear, and some space next to it. We call this area “The Yard”. On Wednesdays we still visit the CENTCOM PT Pavillion, where there are four pull-up bars and a roof. One day we’ll get our own rig with pull-up bars. For now, we’re still enamored with our first two squat racks which FINALLY allow us to work on strength specific movements i.e SQUATS!! Besides the shipping container, they are the best thing to happen to our outfit since our affiliation.
The future of CrossFit CENTCOM lies with the future of its members: the gym will not get worse or stay the same, it will continue to improve.
