We had a pretty exciting couple of days last weekend as we hosted some of the fittest athletes in the CrossFit North Central Region for the second annual #PreRegionals at CrossFit COMO. The tradition began in 2014, when Jacob Heppner (17th Fittest Man in the World – 2014 Games) hooked up with coach Dylan Kelly for a weekend of workouts prior to the CrossFit North Central Regional. When both athletes qualified again for this year’s new Central Regionals, the tradition continued and even more athletes were invited.
CrossFit COMO played host to many athletes in the Top 20 of the North Central Regionals on both the men’s and women’s side.
On the men’s side:
Jacob Heppner – 1st in North Central 2015 Open (9th in World)
Jack Long – 3rd in North Central 2015 Open (44th in World)
Dylan Kelly – 5th in North Central 2015 Open (56th in World)
Shane McBride – 6th in North Central 2015 Open (54th in World)
Invited but unable to attend: Arlen Castenada, Steven Wallace, Alan Joyner, Alex Nettey
On the women’s side:
The workouts were pretty brutal and spanned three days. It was a very inspiring weekend and was a lot of fun to watch. Good luck to all of you in the Central Regionals in Minneapolis! Looking forward to hosting more of North Central’s best athletes in the future.
