It's February (already), which means it's almost time for the 2016 CrossFit Open to start! Like in two days about to start. Have you registered yet? Check it out and get on it HERE! This will be my third year participating, and it's a lot of fun. It's always exciting to hear that WOD announced live, watch some amazing elite athletes perform it, and participate in it that weekend for yourself!
This was also my third year photographing CrossFit Williamsburg Gangs of the Mid-Atlantic...again, lots of fun! There is always great programming, impressive performances, and strong camaraderie.
This year there was just about every division you can think of spanning over two days. Naturally, there were a lot of athletes competing!!
Whether you are looking for motivation for signing up for The Open or just to make it to class tomorrow, enjoy! :)
These competitions would not happen if not for the volunteers! They judge, help with equipment, clean up, and generally make sure this all runs smoothly for the athletes.
No question these athletes are working super hard. Sometimes it is your teammates' cheer which gets you through that last rep...then they celebrate with you. This sport notoriously supports it's fellow athletes. I love that so much. We're all in this together...it's much more fun to celebrate each other's successes!
Feel like running out to do your WOD today or sign up for the open? Have you ever been in a competition before? No?! Well then, from the creators of "Gangs of the Mid-Atlantic" (so you know it'll be good! ) comes a competition strictly for beginner athletes that have NEVER participated in a competition! Find out more HERE!
