Can I view ahead? Would love to plan my week – can I see more than a day in advance?

Absolutely! For this very reason, we are now posting 7-Days ahead.

This will be done on a rolling schedule. That is, if it’s Wednesday, you can see through next Wednesday’s training. And if it’s Friday, you can see through next Friday’s training. Always staying 7-days ahead!

Are there separate Age Divisions in the program?

Yes, there are (6) age divisions. Each division is unique with it’s own age specific leaderboard and comments board. Programming is tailored to each age division, modifying volumes and loads based on a multitude of factors – not just what the CrossFit Games competitive stage prescribes in the Open.

  • Ages 35-49
  • Ages 40-44
  • Ages 45-49
  • Ages 50-54
  • Ages 55-59
  • Ages 60+

With that said, it is our aim to keep the programming as similar as possible to remain, as one single CompTrain family. It is our dream to have a teenager, and young adult, and their parents to all be completing a CompTrain workout together, with the small tweaks made specific to their age group and ability level. What we would never want, is isolated groups from each other – the opposite of a family. We all will have unique skill work to complete which may vary between divisions or abilities, but for the most part, we are together as one team.

Can you explain the different levels of programming? (Open vs Qualifier)

Open Programming – Those who are looking to finish more competitively in the Open, and are aiming to crack the Top 200.

Qualifier Programming – Those who are confident they will make the Top 200 in their age group. Loading and volume can be slightly heavier for this group in comparison.

Games Programming – Those who qualify for the Games (only between the Qualifier and the Games).

Inside of each day of programming are Coach’s Notes, detailing the stimulus and goal of the training. This allows for personal scaling to take place as well. Everyone can train in this program.

How many days per week do we train?

We utilize a 5 days on, 2 days off flow.

Mon + Tue + Wed – On
Thurs – Rest
Fri + Sat – On
Sun – Rest

Many of our athletes modify however to fit their schedule – it is not imperative to follow exactly on the same day, but it is highly beneficial to stay current with the community if you can.

How much training time is needed on an average day?

We understand that double-sessions are not a practical option for the vast majority of us. Each day of programming is designed to be completed as a single session, ranging from the 60-90 minute mark to include warmup.

Should I go back to a certain date to start, or jump in on the current date?

Stay current! It is best to stay current and engage the community! There is no need to backdate and start on a previous month.

Do you offer personalized programming?

While personalized programming is something we’d love to offer in the future, we currently do not have the capacity to provide individualized training programs.

What’s the deal with the Age Specific Leaderboard?

With daily feedback on the leaderboard for each day’s programming, you’ll have a picture of where you stand amongst your fellow competitors inside your age bracket. This is valuable information so that you know where you are within the field in regard to your weightlifting, conditioning times, and skills.

Do you offer specific strategy during the Open / Qualifier / Games?

Absolutely. This is where we thrive. Upon the release of the Open workouts, we will put up an initial strategy and refine that the following day with video instruction. Following into the Qualifier, we will have the weekend of strategy posted to the blog. At the Games, our team will always be there to support our athletes.

Will I have direct access for coaching questions?

Yes! We love when our athletes reach out and communicate not only with us, but with other teammates as well.

We deeply believe that if you have a question, chances are highly, highly likely another has a very similar, if not identical question. At the very least, we can all benefit from the conversation if it’s a public talk! So we love to communicate on our Facebook group or on the app “whiteboard”, where the daily programming is posted.
