When Ashley first started Crossfitting she could not do a single pull up. One year later she is doing six in a row for several rounds of work. She has not only gotten stronger but has gained more confidence and pushes herself harder than ever. Oh, she is also my wife. I couldn't be more proud of her!

I have to say, competing in my first CrossFit Games was absolutely amazing. Seeing the athletes, the big names of Crossfit and the competition is one of the better experiences in my life. It also taught me that I have a lot of work to do if I want to be considered a top elite crossfiter. It has given me a new perspective of the work and commitment that I have to put in to take it to the next level. I could ask for a better group of people to travel with and spend time with that the people in the CrossFit Central team. And congratulations to my brother Jeremy Thiel for his third place finish, truly inspiring!!

It has been an extreme three month proses prepping for the Crossfit Games coming up this weekend. I have to say working out six days a week, following the zone diet and staying the most discipline I have ever been has paid of. I am stronger and leaner than I have ever been in my in tire life and I owe it to Crossfit. It has provided me with the desire to want to improve, eat healthier and work harder and endure more pain than I ever thought I could. I will forever be thankful to Coach Glassmen for what he has provided all Crossfiters and my brother Jeremy for introducing me to Crossfit. I can't even imagine the energy and anxiety I will be filling before the first challenge begins, but I know that I will be prepared for battle because of the intense training and structure Crossfit has provided me. I will forever be grateful.
