This past weekend at the 2012 Crossft regional competition held down south in West Palm was oh, so da crazy.
This weekend the CFWJ Regional team took their talents to south beach, with a bunch of friends and family, to test their skills against the best the South East had to offer. The team consisted of Clay, Joey, Matt W, Ashley, Regena, and Kelly, with Leah and Armando as alternate athletes. These 8 athletes worked extremely hard leading up to the competition, completing multiple workouts a day, as well as putting some other life issues on hold in order to get their training in. This weekend was their time to put it on the line and they did not disappoint. The Regional took place over 3 days, with 2 workouts a day, mixing and matching modalities and athletes, creating an environment that was fun and exciting for everyone. We had people set new personal bests in the Snatch and the two person deadlift. Every one of our athletes left everything they had on the floor and gave realization to the term "FULL EFFORT=FULL VICTORY".
The atmosphere that is created at these competitions is amazing. If you have never been, you need to go. Bonds and friendships are formed between people, and the community as a whole strengthens and grows. What we have here at CFWJ is something amazing and special, something you just have to be apart of to fully comprehend it. In addition to the athletes, a giant thanks needs to be given to all those that came out to support, you are the catalyst, essential for success. Special thanks to Bill for setting up logistics and Leah for feeding us with some amazing and tasty, home made paleo dishes. You guys rock!
