What are the CrossFit Games?

If you are new to CrossFit, or just haven’t heard of the CF Games, you may be wondering just what they are?  Well here is an explanation for them on the CrossFit Journal. Think of it as the Olympics or World Cup of CrossFit. This Saturday CrossFit Seattle will host the Northwest Regional Qualifiers at Magnuson Park for 143 athletes who hail from the four state region of Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Idaho.  The top four male and top four female athletes will advance to the CrossFit Games in July in Aromas, CA.  There will be two WOD’s and details of the competition can be found here at the NW Regional Qualifier website.

I will be competing for the pure experience of it.  Like running a race, completing a triathlon, or any other competitive athletic endeavor, this one will be a gathering of people who are all interested in pushing themselves to achieve different fitness goals.  For me it will be something to gauge my fitness level against some impressive athletes.  The bonus is I get to do this doing something I love. The Qualifiers will be a good time with good people doing what they love to do.  If you are inclined to see what CrossFit is all about and want to see many of the best in the Pacific Northwest giving it their all, then check out the site for details and swing by. 

And remember, in CrossFit and in life…

Every Second Counts
