The Time for Action is Upon Us!

‘It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.’

– Theodore Roosevelt

Do you get fired up after reading this quote?  I know I do!  Competition brings out the best in us.  There is something sacred about having something concrete to work towards, laying it all on the line and emerging knowing you gave it your all.  These opportunities come few and far between, but you WILL get the opportunity June 29th.  Here are the details:

You participate in the preliminary workout on or before June 29th.

For 6 weeks you train with the intent on demolishing your previous score.

On finals day you lay it all out on the line and the most relative improvement will win prizes!

This is fun way to be engaged in the community, have something to fight for, and get results on skills you probably need work on!

One of the coolest aspects of this particular challenge is they just did this in the CrossFit Games regionals so you can compare yourself to the best in the world as well!

In conjunction with the PR challenge we will be hosting skill seminars on all the movements.  Admission for participants of the challenge will be discounted.  More info to come on the seminars.
