The Games are Here

The 2017 CrossFit Games kicked off with 3 workouts and it’s barely the first day of a long 4 days of competition. This year it’s easier to watch all the action thanks to a couple of options for live streaming and replays. You can find all of the events on games.crossfit.com or on Facebook live, or cbssports.com or through any cbs sports avenues. 

There has already been some new challenges like a cyclocross event and a very difficult obstacle course, which make this year’s games stand out from the previous years. Watching these athletes perform should give you plenty of motivation to hit the gym hard this month!

Trust


This weekend we had a chance to test our skills and see the results of our training. I couldn’t be happier with the way it all turned out. 
From Scaled through Rx’d to Firebreather, everyone that competed did so with the right approach. The workouts were fluid, each movement was crisp and efficient and everybody came in looking extremely balanced without any holes or weak spots in their game. 

Good job to everyone that competed! You guys showed trust in knowing yourselves as athletes. Trust in each other for support and trust in each other as a team if you were in the Scaled division. You had trust in your skill sets and your abilities to stay calm and focused throughout the long day of competition. Most importantly everyone enjoyed the moment and had fun. We really do have something special with our gym and it shows whenever we go out to comps. Everyone enjoys each other and enjoys hanging out together and pushing each other. Each competitor we had, pushed and brought each other up. 

Thank you all for trusting the process and putting on a show of all the hard work you put into the gym day in and day out.
