What a great competition!!! This year we had some dramatic changes! Every single person in the challenge improved on their benchmark wods and showed that eating clean is clearly the leading factor to improving your fitness!!! That’s what CrossFit is all about, improving your fitness, improving your mental toughness and improving your ability to succeed. The by-product of all this FITNESS is that you also look good naked when you are fit. Who would have thought?! Again, that’s the focus, it’s not scales, it’s not calories, it is eating healthy and clean and maintaining a healthy lifestyle so you can improve your Fran Time!!! The rest will just fall into place.
So, congratulations to all the contestants that started and a little more applause for those that finished the challenge. Also let’s thank all our coaches for stepping up and being a team leader. Both the BLUE TEAM and the ORANGE TEAM have athletes in the top spots, so for bragging rights I’m going to say that it’s a tie between these two teams. Maybe we can have a Fran off for the title???
As usual the competition was tough and the top contestants were all very close. With so many improvements by everyone it made choosing the top two male and female contestants harder than ever.
