Since the 2015 CrossFit Open, Chris has continued making gains in the gym. He has introduced multiple friends and family members to the sport, and credits CrossFit to making improvements with his health, wellness, fitness, and even his personal and professional life.
While he was unable to make any predictions on what to expect for the 2016 Open workouts, he mentioned that, “What scared the hell out of me last year, doesn’t seem nearly as bad this year.” He’d even consider doing a couple 2015 workouts RX.
This realization has Chris even more excited for the 2016 season. While there are still movements that plague him, he’s not concerned.
“I don’t have muscle ups and I suck at double-unders. Both will (likely) be in the Open but that is okay.”
Whether you’re 47, 17, or anywhere else on the age spectrum, know that there’s someone else in your gym or in the WORLD that is taking their first, second, etc. step into the Open. Whether it’s your first year of CrossFit or your first year competing, there are athletes on the same playing field as you. This 5-week competition is about celebrating how far you have come, and is also a blinding glimpse at the progress you will continue to make.
Chris is #InTheOpen. Are you?
