What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is a grassroots fitness movement based out of Santa Cruz, California. It is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist. The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.

Update Day #2 and #3 of the 2014 CrossFit Games
The 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games have come and gone.  It's tough to explain the excitement and pride that we all experienced over the past 4 days.  To be a part of a sport that does so much for so many people is truly a honor.
First of all, Rich Froning is an absolute freak.  He absolutely dominated the field over the final two days.  He is true champion.  
Camille Leblanc-Bazinet won in the Women's Division.  She developed a sizable lead on Saturday and basically had things wrapped up before the final day.  She will be a excellent, female "face" for CrossFit. 
CrossFit Invictus won in the Team Division which was a very very close race that came down to the final event.
We had a ton of fun spending time together as a staff.  We trained, we ate, we drank, we shopped, we laughed, and we talked late into the night.  We made great memories.  Most importantly, we were reminded of how amazing the Marmon Muscle/CFW community of athletes are and how much you mean to us.  As much fun as we are having, we cannot wait to get back to all of you guys and share with you our love for fitness and fellowship.
Feel free to fire away with any questions that you guys have about the GAMES and we will respond with answers!

Met-Con
"Triple 3"
For time:
3000m row
300 - Double Unders
3 mile run
*SCALE AS NEEDED

Quote of the Day:  "We get wrapped up in the Games, and it's sexy and it's fun, but gosh, to be able to just say, 'Yeah, I can do that. Maybe not as fast, maybe not as much, but I can do that,' puts you head and shoulders above the majority of the human population, and that's beautiful to me." —Austin Malleolo


Discussion: Day 2 of the 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games was an adrenaline filled, action packed experience for all of us!  We started the day in the soccer stadium watching the Team Division doing the 6-mile relay run followed by the Individuals doing the "Triple 3".  The sun and heat were grueling! Athletes were cramping and dropping like flies.  Later in the day we watched the Teams perform "Frantasyland", a 1RM Deadlift, and a 100 yard and 200 yard Big Bob Sled race.  The top deadlifts of the day were 655lbs (male) and 425lbs (female)!  The last event in the Soccer Stadium was the Sled Sprint race.  It was short but BRUTAL!  
For the evening events, we moved to the Tennis stadium.  The Tennis stadium is a smaller venue which results in a very loud, packed, energetic environment.  DJ Swizz Beats was getting the crowd fired up and it was a lot of fun to be in the crowd.  Rich Froning performed like a true champion in the final event of the night.  He won the event which catapulted him from 14th overall to 4th place overall!!!  Camille Leblanc-Bazinet won the event on the women's side, putting on a display of gymnastics mastery as she went unbroken on her pull-ups, chest to bar pull-ups, and bar muscle-ups.  It was quiet a spectacle to witness in person.  
As far as CrossFit celebrity hunting goes, Britta met Katie Hogan (my girl crush) and got a picture with her.  Tom met Matt Chan (my man crush) in the men's room.  Mark, Tom, and I watched Dmitry Klokov train for a few minutes.  I am sure there were more but I mentioned the important ones. Lol.
We made it back to our West Coast Marmon Muscle Headquarters exhausted, hungry, and sunburned!  We cannot wait for tomorrow.  Make sure you guys tune into ESPN to watch.  We miss you all.

Update Day #1 at the CrossFit Games
Team MarmonMassieToothaker checked in to the beach house today and quickly hit up Vendor Village at the CrossFit Games.  We saw some bad ass CrossFitters as we roamed the grounds....like, Sam Briggs, Christy Adkins, Bill Grundler, Michelle Crawford, Chase Ingram, and a ton of fit looking people! We watched the final event for the Masters Men and caught fellow box owner and friend Jerry Hill win his event to become the Masters Champion in his division.  We're looking forward to an early morning to get to the Games and watch some amazing athletes compete.  More updates tomorrow.  Missing you guys and the box!
