The CrossFit Open has been an amazing experience for those of us at CrossFit COMO. We challenged ourselves, we pushed outside the comfort zone, many of us have achieved something we never thought possible. And we had a lot of fun!
Check out our event recaps to learn about all of the amazing things that happened in at CrossFit COMO.
Each and every Friday night, magic happened. Many people brought their friends and family, to come experience a big part of what CrossFit is all about.
There were moments on those nights that sent chills up my spine, in a good way. I’ll never forget during 14.4, Taylor Park was our first athlete to make it to the rings. The anticipation from the crowd had been building. He jumped up there, kicked his feet back, swung forward, pulled hard and got stuck. The crowd subsided. He dropped, took a second, got back up there, and that’s when it happened. He started with a big kip, came through pulled up and got the first muscle-up of the night. The crowd went absolutely nuts, the hair on my neck rose, and that moment will forever be etched into my memory. WOW, what an experience.
I want to share that experience with everyone. So, here’s your opportunity to change someone’s life forever.
Here’s your charge: Teach your husband, your wife, your best friend, your colleague, that kid down the street to squat. If you care about them, teach them how to do an honest-to-God, heels-down, hips-back SQUAT.
Here’s a quick video, that helped me learn to coach others in the squat.
I’ll even give you a prize. Post a picture of your friend squatting to our facebook page today(Tuesday, July 1) or tomorrow(Wednesday, July 2), or email it to me, and they can do our 2-week CrossFit COMO Foundations Course for free (a $65 value.) It has to be good–you’ll have to teach them–and it has to be today or tomorrow. But if they do one good squat, they come to CrossFit COMO for free.
Can you think of a better gift to give your best friend, your husband, your boss? I can’t.
