Team MBS after the Power of 3 competition.
The Power of 3 competition this weekend was awesome. The picture above was taken after the event (a few folks had left), and we had a HUGE crew up there..7 teams total. That was probably the most fun event I’ve ever participated in…the Radcomps crew did an excellent job and it was just a great way to spend a Saturday. They will be hosting their next event June 28th at Red Rocks. You can sign up here.
Speaking of competition, how do you find local events to participate in?? The best way to stay connected is the “Colorado CrossFit Affiliate Events” group on Facebook. Search for that group and ask to join. All Colorado gym-owners post their events there first. Next, look for flyers on our bulletin board in the front of the gym…we are always posting event flyers there. If you still can’t find an event that interests you, ask one of us and we can help you find an event.
There are a lot of ways to use your “fitness” other than competing in CrossFit events. You can do 5-10k runs, bike races, mud runs, adventure races, weightlifting/powerlifting meets, highland games, strongman events…you think it up, they probably have an event for it. If your fitness is important to you, it’s important to put yourself into the ring and test it…I know “competing” may seem a little far-fetched if you never participated in sports and are no longer in your best shape…that’s ok. Everyone starts somewhere. It’s not as much about winning as it is about being your best and continued self-improvement.
