We received a great email from Tony and I just had to share it with everyone – Thanks Tony, its so nice to hear these awesome experiences! It really proves what kind of athletes we have at SCF….
I went on vacation two weeks ago, with plans to visit a CrossFit affiliate in the area. Let me preface this story with the fact that at our box, my times/scores are average compared to some of the athletes that are in the classes in Southington. I have only been involved in CrossFit for six months and my visit to another box was an eye opener.
On vacation I ended up visiting two affiliates, attending two classes at each one. The facilities were great and the coaches were excellent. One opened up in 2005 and the other in 2011. I was nervous during the visits, because I did not know what to expect and I was just hoping to keep up with everyone during the WODs. The eye opening part was the performance level of the athletes at these affiliates. Each class had about fifteen people. In all four classes almost all the athletes were scaling down the WODs. I was able to rx all of the WODs and I consider myself a mediocre crossfitter at best. One of the WODs involved deadlifts and ring dips and only one member was able to do ring dips without band assistance. There were guys there bigger than me and appeared stronger than me but yet I was able to go heavier than them on my lifts and perform at a higher level. Katy attended one of the workouts with me and she can attest to the aforementioned comment. Katy also added that she did not even break a sweat because the WOD was so easy. There were many similar examples I can write, but that is not the point of this blog.
I was just amazed on how our athletes compare to athletes from other boxes. I attribute our high level of performance to our coaches but most of all to the hard work and dedication of our athletes. The most important person to acknowledge for why we excel is our mad workout scientist, Matt. Matt designs our daily workout routines, which not only have ultimate goals in mind but are made to push us to become the best athletes we can be. I can’t wait to see everyone’s continued improvements. I just want to say thank you to Matt and Bobby and our whole family at Southington CrossFit.
