CrossFit Games vs CrossFit Moncton

*Open gym today from 10-11:30am*

The 2018 CrossFit Games are complete and the victors have been crowned. It’s such an exciting show to watch. Dave Castro puts those athletes through hell and back (who starts a competition with a marathon row?). It’s damn impressive to see the top athletes in the world crush workouts all weekend.

But I find something even more impressive. Below is a picture of an 8:30 class from last week. Take a look at it. All ages. All abilities. Grandmothers. Mothers. New moms. And even expecting moms. All under the same roof, working out side-by-side. THAT is damn impressive.

CrossFit affiliates get a bad reputation, because the public watches the CrossFit Games, and thinks that’s what we do. Sure, they’re still doing CrossFit, but they’re doing it as a test (14 in fact). And some of those tests are straight up crazy.

At CrossFit Moncton, we train. We practice. We support and care for each other. It doesn’t look like the CrossFit Games. So when people say CrossFit is crazy, they obviously haven’t come to CrossFit Moncton for a Bring a Friend Day yet. They’re just making assumptions based on what they saw on TV. Next time someone says that to you, show them this picture and ask them to count all the crazy people*.

*the answer is 16 😉
