Bryan Felix’s “Favorite CF Open memory”
FIRST I just want to say that all of the sweats will be here on THIS FRIDAY! I actually have a tracking number and they are en route. Again, sorry for the delay, but all were elements out of my control. Plenty of cold weather left to get good use out of them!
Today is our first “favorite CF Open memory” blog. This series of weekly guest blogs will feature a different coach and one of their favorite memories from the Open. I know you’ll enjoy reading them as much as I have!
“My first CrossFit experience involved me walking into CFHV in March 2011 to catch the end of an Open Workout. It was an eye opening experience to say the least.
It was the final heat of a workout where I saw peeps doing Double Unders and Power Snatches, both of which were moves I had never done…ever!
A few days later, I came back and did my first workout at High Voltage- and the rest is history! Since then, from 2012 on I’ve participated in the CF Open & each year has been full of fond moments.
From our Friday Night Lights events, to the many friendships (#OohhKillEm #WolfPack4Life) & unplanned PR’s that have come from those 5 weeks.
It’s crazy how those brief moments create lifelong memories.
If this is new to you, the HQ has done a great job of providing scaling options if we don’t have those tricky Double Unders, Toes-to-Bar or Muscle Ups.
To be honest, I also was on the fence about Open this year because of my shoulder/biceps surgery. Luckily though with a scaled option for each workout, we know we are not alone.
Let’s push ourselves to our best ability and have fun doing it! Cheers to an awesome upcoming Open!”
