CrossFit Cental. One of the oldest, most well known, and successful CrossFit gyms in the nation. SeeFit stop #11.
This is one that we were all looking forward to and expecting a big turnout from. In itself, it was pretty cool showing up to be greeted by Jeremy Theil (3rd place in the 2008 CrossFit Games), Carey Kepler (1st place in the 2011 South Central Regional), and the rest of their badass team that qualified for the Games this year. Carey brought a high energy that got us all pumped from the get-go.
More and more people from surrounding gyms showed up and before we knew it, we had a packed house! After Jeremy’s enthusiastic and heartfelt introduction, we got the ball rolling and as always, saw some awesome stuff. “Bike Mike,” whom a few of us had seen in videos performing crazy feats of athleticism, set our high score on the row for calories with a huge 66 in just 2 minutes! As each member of the SeeFit team manned and judged our respective stations, we got to know a lot of the people competing.
Once the event was wrapped up, Noah squeezed in one of the recently released Games WODs (3 rounds for time of 8 split snatch (115), 7 bar muscle-ups, and 400 meter run) with the Road to Games crew that showed up mid way through the event. Interested to see how his 8:30 time holds up against all of the Games athletes in less than a week!
All in all, another great event and afterwards we met up with the Central crew at Sam’s Boat to watch Anderson Silva successfully defend his title for the 10th time. Thanks to Jeremy, Carey, Ingrid, and all the others that lent a hand in supporting SeeFit’s Road to the Cure. Day 12 holds a grueling 16 hour drive from Austin, Texas to Scottsdale, Arizona. The drive should pay off when we get to spend the next afternoon at OPT to “get comfortable with the uncomfortable” and work with the 1st ever CrossFit Games champ, James Fitzgerald. Keep following our journey, almost there!
