Athletes who are interested in joining the Karhu Method to prepare themselves for the Sport of Fitness should be able to complete training sessions as prescribed (Rx). While you do not need to be at an elite level to enter the program, it is expected that you have been training CrossFit for at least three years, are proficient in bodyweight movements and weightlifting, and have developed the capacity and durability to handle higher-volume and higher-intensity training.

The yearly template is based around the CrossFit season (March-August). Each phase of the season has a different feel, flow and purpose. At different times in the season, athletes will develop their GPP, strength, gymnastics and work capacity in different ratios, volumes and intensities. Extra work is prescribed strategically for those who need it, to emphasize a strength or to shore up a weakness or imbalance.

Those that join are a special breed.
