Doing a Retro Games walk-through

The Retro Games are a little under a month away and I think you should do them even if you don’t think you’re ready.  Virtually every weekend in America people run marathons and do triathlons who have no chance of winning or placing.  But they still have a blast!  What do they know that you might not?  That competing is fun!  That training for an event adds sharpness and focus and you go from exercising to being an athlete.  Out of everything I’ve done with CrossFit in the last 8 years the most fun by far has been competing on a team with my friends.  The individual competition will be tough and if you’re ready to Rx all the workouts then it’s the one you should do.  But the team events are scalable and accessible to just about anyone who’s been CrossFitting 6 months or more.  If you’re still not sure we’d still love to have you as a judge or volunteer.  So head over to and get involved today!  Here are all the details you need:
