Regionales Leistungzentrum beider Basel: Judo @ CrossFit Basel

Amongst all the training, coaching and competitions, CrossFit Basel hosts and sponsors different sports-groups and athletes. Besides Karate competitor Radovan, the ‚RLZ – Regionales Leistungszentrum Basel‘ trains twice a week at our box.

Short interview with Judokas Florian Droux and Nico Lerch:

Markus Wellenreiter is a former coach of CrossFit Basel and leads the RLZ. RLZ provides a platform for young and talented competition athletes and supports them to become part of the competitive sport or the national team.

We’d like to introduce Markus and his team today!

IMG_9150 _MG_9222

1. Regionales Leistungszentrum beider Basel – who are you and what do you do? 

We are a team of 23 participants of which seven participants are part of the national team. The other 16 members are part of the Sichtungskader. Our goal is to win medals at international competitions.

2. How do you come round to CrossFit?

The infrastructure of the box is exceptional in Switzerland! It provides us with more than enough room to absolve our trainings, plus we have access to all the freeweights and other equipment. Furthermore, the box is ideal for all bodyweight exercises, Powerlifting and Olympic Lifting, which is also part of our training routines. We love that we are able to go all out without anyone complaining about too much noise.

3. How many times do you train per week?

At CrossFit, we train twice a week. Total trainings per week are 7-10 times.

4. What do you train?

We train strength basics like Powerclean, Frontsquats, Bench Press, Pull ups and Dips. Depending on the training phase, we do Cardio on the Airdyne and Prowler or run up the Gempen regularly.

Plus of course Judo, Judo, Judo!

5. To what extent do Judo athletes profit from CrossFit?

  • Better awareness of their bodies
  • Adjustment of disbalances
  • Improvement of strength
  • Explosive movements and endurance.

6. What does your typical work as a coach look like? What are your goals you want to reach with the RLZ?

I was a coach at CrossFit Basel parallel to my job as a coach of the U15 Judo team. After that I transferred to be headcoach of the RLZ Basel. This made me quit my function as a coach at CFBS.

I coach the group in all trainings. That means I lead Fight-, Technique-, and Conditioning Trainings as well as coaching on competitions and in national and international training camps.

Our long term goal is the same for all team members. Participation of the Olympics, Medals at the European Championship and World Championship. Short – or middle term goals are set individually as not everyone is on the same level. We have Judokas in our team who are still fighting on a local level, then we have athletes who are on a national level or even those who compete in international competitions.

8. Your biggest successes up to now?

  • Third place Team Swiss Championship U21
  • Swiss Championship 2014 we scored 10 medals
  • Current awarded junior athlete is our team member Florian Droux
  • 2 big successes with Michèle Johner (Veneto/1) and Luc Heitz (Cannes/F)

A big thanks to Markus and his team for their contribution to this article. All the best for the future – follow us on Facebook to stay tuned for updates on the RLZ and their successes!


The Training Plan – the conception, our contribution

Back in our post about the year in review 2014, we mentioned Ramon’s contribution and support of a concept called The Training Plan. Now that he spent a weekend in Manchester at the Athlete Games, working as a coach and supporting TTP’s owner, Jami Tikkanen’s work with the athletes, we would like to introduce you to the idea behind the Training Plan.

The Training Plan is a movement based SPP (Specific Physical Preparedness) template designed for CrossFit athletes. The goal is to help them achieve their full potential in Sport and Fitness. Whether the goal is to compete at a local level or to stand on the podium at the CrossFit Games –  The Training Plan’s commitment is to provide a Plan that will get the athletes there. The foundation of the plan is built around movement patterns regardless of the type or duration of the challenge the athlete is facing. Investment in good mechanics won’t only allow an athlete to fully express the physical potential on the Game day but also to have a long and healthy career.

Several components are involved in the concept of The Training Plan:

Movement-based Programming 

Skill development

Energy systems development

Ability to produce and sustain high power outputs both aerobically and anaerobically

Strength development

Various methods of training ranging from strength aerobic to maximal effort to address all the components of strength

Mobility work 

Working on a sufficient range of motion and making mobility part of the daily practise


Emphasis lays on good form based on solid practise for Snatch and Clean & Jerk


Building the required strength, developing the skill to carry this strength and then applying it to specific techniques


Programming specific restoration to support the training across the season to ensure best performance every day


Recommendations for a sound foundation of nutrition and hydration which can be adapted to individual requirements

As for Ramon’s role in the Training Plan:

Jami’s concept is followed by quite the impressing list of athletes such as Annie Thorisdottir, Frederik Aegidius, Björgvin Karl Gudmundsson, Simon Mäntylä and Lukas Högberg. All athletes receive programming and guidance from a fine coaching team which includes Jami Tikkanen himself, Chad Vaughn, Ramon Gysin (CF Basel), Darren Ellis (CF New Zealand) and Nate Helming (SFCF, Helming Athletics).

Ramon supports Jami in programming for individual athletes and for TTP in general, particularly in the area of strength. Via phone Ramon and Jami hold weekly meetings to discuss plus the athletes (such as Annie Thorisdottir, Frederik Aegidius) programming.
