WOW! What a great couple of weeks we’ve had!
Test Week was an absolute blast. We saw a ton of PR’s in every workout especially the Total and Baseline. Test week PR’s are a testament to your hard work and commitment. It is a time to assess your training and skills and set new goals. We encourage you to log your workouts and weights for this very reason. Look back over your books and see what you have done. Are you happy with your results? What are your new goals?
Affiliate Mash Up- if you missed it, then you really missed it!
This Saturday athletes from four gyms convened at Crossfit Maryland Heights to complete in an Affiliate Mash Up. Members from Crossfit St. Charles, Crossfit Maryland Heights, Crossfit South City and Crossfit 70 took a leap of faith and let us decide their team mates! We had highly skilled athletes, intermediates and Freshies from different gyms all mashed up to create inclusive and spectacular teams. My favorite moments where when complete strangers informed me that they had never competed. There were plenty of people who have yet to do their first pull up or consistent double unders, yet there they were! When 321 Go sounded they busted it out with everything they had! It is amazing what friendly competition can do for the “uninitiated” There is a great sense of accomplishment from doing things you didn’t know you could do and a new determination to get those elusive skills.
These types of competitions are an opportunity to be a part of the greater community of Crossfit and experience a challenge just to see what you can do. This competition is designed so that all levels of athlete can participate. I am so proud of Alan, Sarah and Erin. Of our 10 athletes they were the Newbies to competition. They did an amazing job and learned about themselves. Here’s to many new adventures in the future!
