The Fittest have been crowned… Massillon, OH

After 5 weeks of greatness, we came very close to naming our first Regional Qualifier but fell a little short. In doing so, a lot of improvements were made, strengths were displayed, weakness was exposed and we all got a little better. Starting off with 16.1, a test we all felt was very difficult to pace which included: Overhead Walking Lunges, Burpees, and Chest to Bar Pullups. Lasting 20 min, it didn’t take long to realize you were going to fast.  Lesson learned. Throughout the next 3 weeks, we were all challenged with Muscle Ups, Heavy Cleans, Double Unders, Toes 2 Bar, Heavy Deadlifts, Rowing, Snatches, Wall Balls and Rowing. Ending with mirage of fireworks by repeating everyone’s favorite from 2 years ago 14.5 = 16.5… a couplet of Thrusters + Bar Facing Burpees completed in the order of: 21 each 18 each 15 each 12 each 9 each 6 each and 3 each!  Good times for sure.

It was an absolute privilege to help prepare, coach and judge a group of athletes ranging from 14 years of age to 55 years of age. The effort was contagious. The determination was intense. The fight was relentless yet, we all survived.  In the end, the experience was amazing and for some, sad that it ended.

The Open revealed more than just proof that what we’re doing in Massillon, OH is something special. It revealed character, community, support and most of all, how enjoying getting in the best shape of your life could be when your training with a group of motivated athletes that want to see everyone get better.

Not only memories were created but also a few titles to brag about. Even though we fell a little short by not having anyone advance to the Regionals, we had a few outstanding performances that resulted in something everyone can be very proud of…
