We’re 3 weeks in to the 2017 Reebok Crossfit Open, 17.1 done, 17.2 done, 17.3 done… While some are complaining about dumbbells and heavy barbell snatches, Team CrossFit Massillon is celebrating PR’s and supporting an amazing group of competitor’s.
For 3 weeks in a row our walls have been lined with friends and family, snapping photos, shooting video, hosting podcasts, going live and cheering for people they don’t even know. It has been a great experience for everyone. When speaking for all the competitor’s, having a crowd of cheering supporter’s is a game changer. The energy has been very motivating and hasn’t gone un-noticed.
We all Thank you for joining us…
