Crossfitter's recently turned their eyes to the sport of fitness that provided 4 days of tests designed to crown the fittest on earth. This year's event, held in Madison Wisconsin, found the 2nd man in Crossfit History to be named the Fittest Man on Earth 4 years in a row, while crowning the first ever three peat women's champion. Crossfit Mayhem, took the team competition with a huge point spread.
Normally, once the Crossfit Games concludes, we have an off season for which we prepare ourselves for the next years competitive season. This year, the conclusion of the games opens the prep season for the Crossfit Open. The 2019-2020 Crossfit Open season begins in October. In fact, Crossfit has released the date for the first open workout announcement, October 10th. As of today, that means we have 64 days (8 weeks) before we open the doors to Mossy Creek Fitness and our 2nd series of Friday Night Lights! The gym floor will turn into a crazy competitive environment in which each of you will change from Bruce Banner into the Hulk.
For me, this is an exciting time of the year. During the Open Prep season, we start to see programming in the gym that helps us focus on our weaknesses and develop a balanced level of fitness prior to competition. While programming will begin to focus on the physical holes in your competitive holes, we are going to build the competitive mindset.
Over the next 8 weeks, we will be discussing the competitive mindset with some of our athletes. We are going to be talking with many of our recent competitors to see what made them compete, and what they used to develop the competitive fire that drove them to sign-up and finish the events.
What will drive you to compete in the upcoming Crossfit Open, and how can we help you develop the competitive mindset you desire.
