Lots to go through today. First and foremost I want to say how proud I am of our three teams that competed yesterday at CrossFit Timpanogas. It was a great event with some great programming. It was a testament of just how far all of you have come. The competition in both divisions was very high with regional athletes scattered throughout. Our three teams held their own and finished strong.
Shayne, Coach Nate and Kindra ended up in 4th place. They started out strong with a second place finish in the first WOD and then took 3rd in the second WOD putting them in the #1 spot going into the final two WODs. The final two WODs brought up some weaknesses and fatigue and pushed them into 4th by the end. The only teams that they lost to had regional athletes and although it is hard to give up a lead it was an amazing finish by three incredible athletes. Can’t wait to see future events with these three athletes.
As I said, the event was stacked with high level athletes and our second Rx+ team ended up in 11th. Coach Dave, Zach and Rachelle were really quite amazing. They complimented each other well and really performed at a very high level.
Our final team were in the Rx division and were very consistent with finishes of 7th, 4th, and 5th. This put them in 7th overall at the end. Steve, Jess, and Leslie were a phenomenal team to watch. Leslie put up the top girl’s weight in the complex for the Rx peeps putting up 150#! This was a great learning experience for these athletes. I know learned a lot about themselves in the process.
It really was a great Saturday. I love seeing just how far our athletes have come. In the past we would always participate in these comps but now we are getting competitive in these comps. We are catching up and looking strong. It’s very exciting for me to see. Huge shoutout to all the cheerleaders. We definitely had the biggest following there cheering on our competitors. I am always so impressed with everyone who sacrifices part of their day to come cheer on their teammates.
CFTP LOCKDOWN FALL 2015
Ok… Now onto the upcoming Lockdown. So far many of you have signed up but there are still many of you who have not. Hopefully with providing some details below, it will help you all get on board.
What is the CFTP Lockdown? The Lockdown is a chance for all of us at The Point to get together and challenge ourselves in a partner competition. This competition will be performed over 4 weeks starting next week. Every week I will announce a WOD to be performed by you and your partner (male/male, female/female). You will have until Saturday to complete it. The WOD will be announced on Wednesday of every week except for the first week where it will be announced on Sunday due to the Hyperion Games Competition running on Saturday. On every week besides the first week we will have a throw down on Saturday for anyone who would like to have the competitive atmosphere to complete the WOD. If you can’t make it on Saturday then you and your partner can complete the WOD at anytime after the WOD is announced but must be done before Saturday night.
What divisions are there? There is going to be an Rx division and a scaled division. I will release some of the suggested levels you will need to be at in order to compete in the Rx division below.
