So much to address…

This week we will recap Regionals from several different angles.  I know I have a lot to talk about (abs, mobility…), but this weekend trumps that for various reasons.  First and foremost I will like to thank every one who posted, emailed, or in one way shape of form wished the Back Bay teams well.  Secondly, Reebok CrossFit Back Bay sincerely appreciates your attendance on all three of the days of competition.  It was a wonderful weekend that was made better by having all of you alongside.  Lastly, a special thanks goes out to Greg Lukas who went considerably out of his way to ensure that the experience you had at Regionals was optimal.  Thank you Greg, we sincerely appreciate everything you do for all of us.

These last three days felt incredibly long, but now that they are over, they feel so far behind.  This was a great opportunity to see, in action, the sport we all know, love, and practice every day.  This weekend was a great opportunity to be humbled by the effort of the men and emasculated by the effort of the women.  The Regionals competition has grown from an event that once took place in a parking lot to having an official venues all around the world.  The sport of fitness has certainly arrived.

If you enjoyed, in any way, watching the competition, then you would love actually competing.  It is difficult to match the gladiator-entering-the-arena-like feeling you get when entering the stage.  There are local competitions that host workouts on both Rx and scaled divisions.  The first day of training is always the day after a competition.

3, 2, 1…GO!!!,
