Here’s Carly and Leah with ‘The CHAMP”!

img_0317Aromas & The CrossFit Games…Here CrossFit North Hollywood comes!!!

Big thanks to Leah & Joe for making it out there to cheer her on. Kris gave an absolutely incredible performance. Nearly flawless technique, consistent pace through out, no one could stop her…not even John Conner (get it, a Terminator joke?)

By winning the SoCal CF Games Qual, she has earned a spot at the annual CrossFit Games July 10-12 in Aromas, CA. Athletes from around the world will compete for a right to be called the fittest athlete on the planet! By winning this competition, Kris has earned the right to be called the fittest athlete in Southern California! Amazing!!!!

OK, quick update…here’s how dominant Kris was:

During her 2,000 meter row, Carly, Leah, & I were cheering here on with some of our favorite gym phrases: “peanuts”, “let’s go buddy”, and “light weight baby”…Kris killed it so much that she yelled back to us as she rowed:

“Light Weight Baby”

She laughed, her counter laughed, we were in awe…it was awesome!
