What could be better than the CrossFit Games?


What could be better than the CrossFit Games?

This weekend is the CrossFit Games. If you haven’t seen any of it yet, check out this live stream – Spectator Stream. Today is the last day of competition and it’s going to be epic. The event started with a 700m swim, 8km bike and 11km run. And then a boat load of other stuff all weekend. To say it’s amazing would be an understatement.

However, I do find something even more amazing than the athletes at the Games.

The athletes at CrossFit Moncton amaze me the most.

We have Christine, who is doing full depth squats, after undergoing knee surgery not long ago.

We have Tim, who took a few months off, come back and run 3km (when he could have easily taken a “rest day”).

We have Mom, who is still lifting heavy and setting new personal records, even after being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis.

We have Natacha, who tore her achilles tendon playing frisbee, come back to the gym after three months and hit workouts like she never took time off.

And we have Gillyon, who did 150 double unders and 150 situps in 6 minutes, even after having an emergency C-section only 6 months ago.

There are SO many more amazing stories. The CrossFit Games athletes may be crazy strong and super fit, but it’s the members at CrossFit Moncton that give me goosebumps! Thanks for being so inspirational!

    SWEET MOTHER… my computer won’t play the Games feed and my computer guy (Brad) is at the Mudder… i’m sure he’ll swing back real quick between obstacles… 🙁

      Hasn’t started yet today if you were trying to play it earlier that’s why it wouldn’t have worked. Will start at 8am PST today.
      If it still won’t work then just go buy a new laptop 🙂

      I love how you are a new mother and you still find time for your workouts. You are a wonderful role model for your daughter. Keep it up! 🙂

    The small things in life…being able to do a full squat!!! LOL I thank god everyday for finding Crossfit…especially Crossfit Moncton….it has changed my life for the better in every way possible!!! 🙂

      Its crazy what we take for granted sometimes, isn’t it? There are days I leave the gym feeling disappointed about my results…when really I should just be thankful that I am able to be there in the first place. I would be a wreck if I couldn’t work out. For me, there are days when the mental benefits of crossfitting outweigh the physicial 😉

    Warm-up: 20 unbroken pull ups on a fatter bar…

    WOD: Tough Mudder @ Mount Snow
    Time = 5h+

    Had a FANTASTIC time with the CFM crew and all the other crossfitters on our team. We all agree that Crossfit has us mentally ready to chug along and power through 10 miles of hiking up and down some very steep hills, some tough obstacles and doing this as a true team.

    Hope a bunch of you decide to join in when we do this again!
