Competing and CrossFit. Yes not everyone want’s to make it or will ever make it to Regionals or the CrossFit Games, but does that mean you shouldn’t compete? Not necessarily in my opinion there are a lot of benefits for competing, here are just a couple. One it keeps you motivated to train and second it is amazing what happens when you compete. You put all your hard work to the test and surprise yourself on some sort of Personal Record(PR). It is good learning experience and every time people come back surprised and proud of their accomplishments when put in that sort of environment. Do I think you should be doing a competition every other week, hmmmm probably not….. but that can be different topic. If you have ever thought of doing a competition but have been hesitant because you think you aren’t good enough, you are wrong, most competitions your coaches have done usually have 2 different categories, open or fire breather(advanced). So if you have ever thought about doing a competition, do it. Research one that you think is up your alley and have some fun. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to start as a team and go from there. From personal experience you learn a lot if you go open-minded and soak up all the knowledge you can. So why do I bring this up? We have some of our athletes that will be competing in November and December. Mark your calendars get your CrossFit Reformation Gear and go support your follow friends and athletes.
November 9th we have 3 or 4 teams at the KCF Dynamic Duo Team Throw-down
December 15th we have 2 or 3 individual athletes competing at the Gorilla Games
If you can make any of these event I highly recommend to come check it out. It is usually a good family environment.
Note from coach Brenden Loyer- Please let us know before you sign up so we can make sure one of the coaches is available that day(if you want coaching)
**Also, Coach B- (Brenden Loyer) wanted me to remind everyone attending the Kipping pull up clinic this Saturday at 12pm to please take care of your hands. Click here for ideas.**
