Think you may be ready to compete? Here's how you can prepare.
In order to compete you want to feel confident in your skill. Assessing your strength and weaknesses, work on your weak points, and then just step up to the challenge. Here are some things we've come up with to help you so just that.
1. Assess Yourself
CrossFit Thames has put out a general guideline of athletic levels for CrossFit. This PDF can help you identify your weaknesses, strengths and help you develop some goals for yourself. The table references athletic levels from beginner to elite. It's an interesting reference.

2. Book a Personal Session with a Coach to work on your weaknesses.
You want to feel confident that when you step up to compete, you won't have any major holes in your CrossFit game. Getting a thorough lesson and some personalized feedback on a movement can be game changing.
Our coaches are now offering personal sessions for those of you who want this service. You can book a session or series of sessions one of two ways: approach the FXF coach you'd like to work with directly and book at the front counter, or email firstname.lastname@example.org and request a session for a certain skill and we'll match you with an appropriate coach.
Session are $75 for one hour - running weekday mornings, 7am, 8am, Saturday and Sunday afternoons and evenings based on availability.
3. Set your sights on an upcoming competition.
There's no better way to start competing than to simply start competing. There are many competitions with scaled and intermediate divisions for teams and individuals that are a lot of fun. We have our eyes on this one in Grand Prairie, early October. It will be amazing to have a big team represent! Consider joining the FXF team.
