Announcing Craig Williams as your new Director of CrossFit Balance-Thomas Circle! Craig has been part of the CF Balance community for the past two years both as a coach, assistant with programming at both our Thomas Circle and Foggy Bottom locations, and athlete! Craig inspires and cultivates a fun and encouraging training environment for members. Craig educates based on his own learning experiences and journey as an athlete including: qualifying for the CrossFit Games Regionals three times as an individual, placing 3rd in the Mid-Atlantic from the Open in 2016; earning the title, “Fittest in Maryland 2015 and Fittest in Washington DC 2016.” “I believe that CrossFit has the power to transform peoples lives not just physically but mentally as well. When you push your body and mind to the limit while working out every other aspect of your life becomes easier and more enjoyable.“

Get ready for Week 3 of the CF Balance League. We will be holding at Thomas Circle. The first workout kicks off at 1pm! Be ready to warm-up and be briefed at 12:50! Bring friends! If the weather isn’t nice, we will all hang for some spike ball afterwards in the studio! A bit about Caroline Larson’s (representing “Let’s Talk about Flex Baby”) thoughts on the CF Balance League below: 1. What movements are you hoping to see this week? A relay style ski erg combined with overhead squats 2. If you guys got to pick one CrossFit Games athlete to join your team, who would you pick? Dan Bailey…I have a crush on him! 3. How would you guys celebrate if you won the league? Fun stuff…booze and dancing 4. What is your ideal celebration meal? I am a sucker for great Italian food 5. What have you guys enjoyed most so far? I have really enjoyed it…I realize that I am more competitive than I care to admit during class so this competition has been good for me to get back in competition-mode.
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!
