Crossfit -CF Games + Amanda

 In Uncategorized

We all workout for different reasons:  For some it is just to stay healthy and fit, and for others it is a chance to push themselves and test their limits.  The coaches and members of CFD have embraced a culture that supports you regardless of the underlying motivation that drives you into the gym.

But there is a time and a place to push yourself, to test your limits, and more importantly, to be a part of a community that supports you in your endeavors.  That is what the CrossFit Games has always been about for us.

This year we all have an opportunity to be a part of something special.  The workouts will be held at Dublin– a safe environment where you will workout and cheer for your friends and workout partners.

I understand that many of you have no desire to “compete,” but all of you should be interested in supporting the members at CFD.  This year you will do that not only by cheering others along, but also by participating in the workouts.  If the workouts are too difficult for you, our coaches will help you modify them and ensure your safety – but everyone will be expected to test themselves in competition and allow their fellow members to cheer them on in this endeavor.

CFD will be opting in as a host site for these workouts, and we are encouraging all who are interested in participating to do so. We will be running the workouts on Friday and Saturday each week in all of our group sessions. Additionally, Friday nights from February 24 to March 23 will be huge party night ! For each of the five weeks we will have catered food, loud music and dozens of phenomenal athletes (that’s you) competing in the Open. We will have several heats, open to individuals of all abilities, and we will also have a few “elite” heats for those athletes hoping to compete at Regionals, and ultimately, the CrossFit Games.

We would love for all of our members to sign up for this event on the CrossFit Games website. .  For all printed instructions, here you are:

So who’s in? Test yourself, give full effort and have no regrets.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” — Theodore Roosevelt, 1910
