TJ’s NorCal Masters Competition This Weekend

Come out and support two of your coaches and fellow athlete this weekend up in Richmond at the Craneway Pavillion as they battle it out in the biggest weekend long competition geared specifically for Masters (ages 35+). Some thoughts from our competitors...


Coach Jason: I have always believed that CrossFit would be a lifelong sport for me and the first time I spectated this competition years ago I was inspired to see “Masters” competing and proving that age is just a number.  I thrive on live in-person competitions and consider this to be the biggest competition of my CrossFit lifetime since competing at the 2008 CrossFit Games and way bigger for me than the Open.  My intention is to continue my practice as a conscious athlete focusing on my attitude, effort and focus to have a fantastic time and see what’s possible. #mindWOD


Coach Jon S: I enjoy the NorCal Masters because it's a place for us elderly folk to compete against people our own age ;-).  Unlike the Open where you can repeat workouts and never see the people you're up against, this is live competition over two days of well-programmed tests in a well-run environment. It's a great test of fitness with a group of friendly peers.



Todd M: NorCal masters was my first ever comp two years ago (besides the open).  It was exhilarating to test my skills and fitness. We work so hard in the gym it was awesome to test it out real-time over an entire weekend with all the great athletes.
