It is only a few short days before Concept2 CTS heads to Carson, California, for the 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games starting July 21. The CrossFit Games are a show of strength and determination where athletes from all over the globe compete for the title of the “Fittest on Earth” and cash prizes. The Games are the culmination of a season of CrossFit regional events that whittle down the athlete pool to approximately 100 of the world’s fittest people.
The Concept2 Indoor Rower has been used in every CrossFit Games to date. This will be the 7th year of the Games and we're excited that Concept2 Indoor Rowers are a part of Friday’s individual competition. Concept2 CTS staff members will also be on hand working the vendor booth, doing demos and all kinds of fun stuff for the duration of the Games.
We are excited to cheer on all of the athletes this year, but we want to send extra good luck wishes to two Vermont athletes who will be Games bound next week—Mat Fraser and Dani Horan. Mat and Dani train out of Champlain Valley CrossFit in Williston, Vermont, and both placed first at the New England regionals, qualifying them for the trip to Carson. We're looking forward to watching great feats of athleticism at the Games July 21–27.
Best of luck to all! For more info, access to archived events, or to stream the Games, visit games.crossfit.com.
