The Reebok CrossFit Games 2016 began this week with both Teens/Masters kicking off on Tuesday and Individuals competing both yesterday and today. You should definitely take some time over the weekend to catch up on some of the events!
It’s been remarkable to see this sport evolve and for athletes to develop! Seeing the best athletes from around the world tackle these events is incredible, inspiring, and motivating in our training! As stated by Ben Bergeron, Owner of CF New England in an interview on Why watch the Games…
“The people who want to watch other off-stream sports are the ones that also participate in them. Everyone can work out. This is just working out. So what they’re doing is taking what you do in the gym and putting a score to it. And because of that everyone can relate to what these guys are doing. They’re just doing it at a world class level, but that’s what the most appealing part is. The fact that it is the best of the best doing what you do every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in the gym is super appealing and super inspiring.”
Best of luck to friends of Balance including Christy Adkins, Kim Rogers, and 12 Labours! Great starts to the weekend!
