North Central Regionals!!!
Remember a few months ago when we all did 5 workouts for the CrossFit Games Open? From 7 minutes of burpees to chest-to-bar Fran, we witnessed some amazing and inspirational performances at CrossFit Chicago. The next step on the road to the CrossFit Games happens this weekend at the McCook Exposition Center. From Friday through Sunday, eight CrossFit Chicago athletes will represent our affiliate at the CrossFit Games – North Central Regional. AlexN and ErinC will compete as individuals against some of the best athletes in a 13 state region. AnthonyD, BrettR, GlennC, GinaP, KellyJ, and MeghanMcN comprise our affiliate team and are also going against some of the top co-ed teams in the Region. They all have been working extremely hard and are ready to compete this weekend. After this weekend’s competition, 3 Male, 3 Female, and 3 Teams will have earned the right to compete against the best in the world at the 6th Reebok CrossFit Games.
As a CrossFit community, we need to show our support and cheer them on to the CrossFit Games. If you’ve never been to a Regional or the CrossFit Games, I highly encourage you to spend at least a day at the event and you’ll come away inspired by the performances and feeling empowered to make even more gains in your training. 3-Day and Single tickets can be purchased here or at the venue for a higher price. I highly recommend carpooling and we can use one of the whiteboards at the box to arrange rides. If you can’t make it this weekend, you can follow the CrossFit Games Leaderboard or us via Twitter or Facebook.
Finally, to show our solidarity for the athletes, we’re going to wear specific shirts for each day. Don’t worry if you don’t have one of the shirts, because any CrossFit Chicago shirt will do. If you don’t have one or want to pick up another, please ask a coach and they’ll be able to assist you.
Friday – Blue or Red “Be Better Than Yesterday” Shirts
Saturday – “Fitness in 100 Words” Shirt (this is also the day we’ll take a group pic for a chance to win a grill and grass fed meat, courtesy of Reebok)
Sunday – TBA
