Regular logging allows you to build up an accurate picture of your fitness and present stage of development, and regular logging is also crucial to making the most of your training sessions (how many times do we do percentage-based lifting or ask for your 2km PB row 500m average split?). Without this information you won't be able make the most out of our training program, and you may be slowing your own progression.

Let's take a look at some of the cool features of Beyond the Whiteboard, and also some of the stuff you may not even know was there!

Beyond the Whiteboard is one of the most valuable resources we offer at CrossFit 1864, but it's only as valuable as the time you dedicate to using it and keeping it up to date. Keeping a consistent and thorough training log is one of the BEST ways to appreciate the hard work and dedication you put in to your training, but it also serves as a timely reminder to just how far you have progressed.
