Ice Breaker

Way back in 2010 (Kevin even had hair then!), I got my first exposure to a CrossFit competition – the Sectionals. The event in Fredericton saw some current and former CFM members compete. I was blown away by the energy from the spectators and the drive of all the athletes.

I came away from this event energized and quite frankly jealous, not of the athletes skill level – I knew I wasn’t in their league – but craving the opportunity to give it my all and being cheered on by a crowd who knows what you are going through and want you to succeed!

Today’s CF athletes are presented with opportunities that just didn’t exist then – the Open and Ice Breaker divisions; both these allow CF athletes at any level to compete alongside other athletes. What a great opportunity to get out of your comfort zone!

One of this year’s Open announcement saw “regular” CF athletes compete live right alongside some of the CF Elite. I don’t think anything embodies CrossFit more than this. Just like a regular CrossFit class where you have athletes doing RX’d & scaled side by side – both come away spent if they give it everything they have.

I urge any CFM member that is “on the fence”, when it comes to competing, to embrace the challenge.  I know your fellow CF Buddies will support, encourage, and cheer you on all the way. I am certain you will come away from the experience with a feeling that you can accomplish any challenge you are faced with in the future.

Oh, and the Hopper is coming up! What another great opportunity to get involved!
