GOOD MORNING CFTP,
This week has been so much fun for me. It really is amazing to watch you all compete. I love seeing the friendly competition you all have with each other. We have 114 competitors in the lockdown!!! That is unheard of. The spirit of competition is so strong at The Point. I have owners of other CrossFit gyms in the area ask me all the time how I am able to get so many of my athletes to compete at local competitions. My only answer is… My people love to compete. You all compete day in and day out at the gym and you all have got the concept down that a competition is just another WOD for you to dominate.
The Hyperion Games
Before I go into the first week lockdown results I want to express my thanks to all the competitors who showed up yesterday at The Hyperion Games and competed. It is so amazing to have so many high quality athletes at all of these local competitions. Our teams did not disappoint. We had 5 teams, 10 competitors, show up to Hyperion and take it by storm! We also had such an amazing group of supporters there. Although it’s been hard for me to be out of competitions for the time being, it’s been amazing to just be able to sit back and watch you all compete.
Skittles, Coach Nate and Marianne took 4th. Taste The Rainbow, Coach Navarro and Coach JoAnn took 17th. Did you Jave?, Coach Dave and Jamyn took 20th. Magically Delicious, Thayne and Mandy took 22nd. Hobbits of The Point, Leslie and JJ took 23rd. These were some awesome results! There were 40 total teams competing and all 5 of our teams held their own. Such an amazing Saturday. There were a lot of highlights that I’d like to share and would usually but we have a lot of Lockdown results to go over!
LOCKDOWN RESULTS WEEK 1
Before I announce the standings so far. I want to tell you how awesome it really was this week for me. I love seeing you all compete and it is cool to see everyone supporting and pushing each other to be better. The scores were all so close. It’s going to make for an exciting month of competition. I also want you to be aware that this is just the first week. If your placement isn’t where you had hoped… Don’t let it get you down. You still have 3 more weeks to give it your all and let the pieces fall where they may.
This week I saw many of you do things that you didn’t think you could do. Some of you have never done toes to bar or have never pushed yourself to do more than a couple. Then you came out and knocked out 30 or 40 of them! For many of you this is your first competition and you came out of nowhere and surprised yourself with what you truly are capable of.
The following standings do not reflect any extra points that will be earned from the clean eating challenge. Those points will be updated on the scores Tuesday. You have until Monday night to update your clean eating for week 1. To earn 3 points for your team you must be 100% for the week but for every clean eating day you mark on the chart you will receive an entry for a free pair of shoes, Nano 5.0, Nike Metcons, or Oly shoes. Many of your charts have yet to be touched. Please be sure to mark your clean eating days! It is your responsibility to get your dots next to your name. The charts are up and your name is up there.
Here are your week one standings:
This week was a great example of the every rep counts rule. Such close scores with many of you within a few reps of earning a few extra points.
