2016 Gangs of the Mid-Atantic Competition at Crossfit Williamsburg

February 21, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

CrossFit Open season is upon us once again! In a few days 17.1 will be announced!  Hundreds of thousands of Crossfitters will be in front of their devices Thursday night to see what Dave has in store for us. Some will laugh, some will cry, but all will be challenged by whatever is announced! The next five weeks will be a series of new workouts, loud cheering, and maybe a PR! If you are new to Crossfit, this is a great way to see what this amazing community is about. If you are a more seasoned athlete, you know you will certainly up your game. If you aren't registered yet or want to find out more, check it out here!

With the open brings lots of fun CrossFit hype! :) This is when I like to revisit the photos from CrossFit Williamsburg's Gangs of the Mid-Atlantic that I took this past Fall to share again and hopefully give some motivation for these exciting next few weeks!  Also girl scout cookies are being delivered right now, so if you are like me you might want an extra workout here or there... 

Meet some of the teams at this past year's Gangs of the Mid-Atlantic...

They work hard and play hard - sometime at the same time. If there was one word I could use to sum up this past year's Gangs competition it would be fun. Don't believe me? Lots of smiles and joking around out there!

Of course none of this would happen so seamlessly without our hard working volunteers and judges!

One of my favorite things to see in these competitions is the teamwork, cheering, and celebration of each other's accomplishments. And I also love to catch the exhausted, crumpled up, and sometimes worse for the ware mess!

So the first open WOD is going to be announced tomorrow. What do you think...one arm dumbbell snatches? Pistols this year? Bring ring muscle ups back?  Whatever it is -or the rest of them for that matter - it'll be an exciting few weeks! Hopefully you'll register and take part in the madness fun.

Whether you take part in the open this year or not, if you are new to competitions and are looking for a gateway event, check out this competition for first timers HERE!
