I’m very excited to be able to host, program, and put on our first competition at CrossFit Fenway. This is something I’ve wanted to do for some time, and now we have the space to welcome the greater Boston CrossFit community into out home.
On Sunday, August 12th we invite teams of 2 men and 1 woman to compete. The first heat will go off around 9 AM, with athlete registration and other administrative details preceding earlier in the day, with the goal of getting everyone on their way for some post-game, celebratory beverages no later than 4 PM.
There will be no scaling, but, without giving too much away… athletes can expect classic CrossFit style workouts, with corresponding traditional loading prescriptions. Capability in bodyweight/gymnastics movements will also be important.
I’m proud to be able to open up our box to our friends in the area, and I want the CrossFit Fenway community to get involved in a big way. This is our event. If you’re interested in being a part of it as a competitor, judge, or volunteer, please e-mail me. I’m looking forward to a great Sunday in August.
