Three different competitions went down over the weekend. Each had some great results! In case you haven't run into our weekend's competitors, here is what you missed.

Team Yellow fever took on the Lifeworx Throwdown with the mindset to have fun and do our best and we did exactly that. Amidst PRs (Tao Tao rowed 500m @ 2:07, Dave nailed a 175lb thruster, and Anita PRing a 125lb thruster and 130lb clean), tire flips, and log carries, we all left the competition with some simple words of wisdom-- communicate, be flexible, and always have fun. Most important to know is that competitions aren't only for the seasoned Crossfit Games athletes-- it's for anyone (yes, anyone) who wants to challenge themselves and place goals upon which can guide their training. Tao Tao, Shaun K and Dave are continuing the Yellow Fever on Oct 25 at Crossfit Vacaville for Halloween Massacre!
The American Strongman Nationals consisted of six events over two days. Coach Kristin lifted all the weight... and if you don't believe me, ask her about deadlifting cars... At 250, this was the largest strongman competition held anywhere to date. Kristin kicked serious ass and placed fifth in her weight class! To top it off, she was awarded an invite to compete at the Arnold Sport Festival in February. Go Kristin!!
Colleen and Coach James rocked the Dia De Los Beasts competition on Saturday up north. They took on everything from synchronized WODding to a hill tire drag and then some. They made sure to keep the goal of fun in mind and ended the day 2nd on the podium! Great job guys! Way to continue to represent!
