2016 CrossFit Games Open Recap

The 2016 CrossFit Games Open comes to a close tomorrow and I am proud of our members.

Whether or not you signed up to participate in the Open, you all worked hard, overcame fears and obstacles, and gave it everything you had.

We saw a lot of great moments this year, both individually and collectively. This picture of Adam getting his first bar muscle-up sums it up. I’m glad Josh P. was there to capture the moment on camera.

The picture says so much about who we are as a gym and the bonds that our members have formed. Look at the excitement on Adam’s face, and the faces of everyone around him. This is pure elation.

I was fortunate to witness this event in person and it was one of those moments as a coach where you almost have to pinch yourself because it seems unreal that this is what your life’s work is all about.

This was just one of many moments like this that took place at TwinTown Fitness during the Open this year, and I am happy that we were able to share them with you all.

Thank you for your hard work and dedication to moving properly and safely. Nobody did anything foolish to get a few extra reps. Nobody sacrificed form or personal safety for a better score.

I’ll be the first to admit that it’s hard to reel yourself in and prevent losing form or taking shortcuts to shave time or get more reps when the clock starts. But we all know the consequences are not worth it. Let’s finish this year’s Open doing it the right way with quality movement.

Good luck crushing it tomorrow!
