Christina: Toes Through Rings at the Garage Games

The Garage Games New England Finals will be held  here at your home box Crossfit Southie. I participated in CFNE’s event and got to see first hand how strong their community is. They had a ton of judges and volunteers from their box, as well as a considerable amount of athletes competing. I really hope for the same for Southie. This is going to be a great first time competition. If you have not competed before and want to give it a shot, this will be a great event for you. If you have competed, then sign up and represent Southie hard!

  • RX athletes need to be able to work with 95/65lbs through all barbell movements and must be able to do unassisted pull-ups.
  • Scaled athletes need to be able to handle 65/45lbs through all barbell pull-ups and need to be able to complete pull-ups with the purple/blue band.

    Hey James. Amy, Maze, Andrea and myself are all signed up as a team to compete in Milford. There are a few other teams currently forming so we should have a crew down there.

    Sweet pic Christina!

    Pretty good article in the NYT about how eating real food is cheaper than junky fast food type stuff (not much discussion about all the government subsidies that make junk food so cheap):

    Is the event in Milford, CT a team event and if so is Southie sending a team? Would be awesome to get some folks to travel down and offer support…

    If anyone is concerned about competing for the first time JUST DO IT! At the end of the day it’s not about the score but continuing to push yourself and letting the box pick you up when you fall down….
