Inaugural Red and Black Competition
In lue of the Crossfit Games happening this coming weekend and the fact that SicFit Austin just had it's first Red and Black Challenge this past weekend, I wanted to challenge each and every one of our SicFit Austin athletes and Crossfit Central athletes to take advantage of the fact that we on occasions put on single day challenges. I think I have heard every excuse possible as to why you can't do it, but I'm going to call it how I see it. You're either intimidated or just plain chicken! Why? You come into the gym two to three days a week, and some of you four days a week and do excruciating training sessions. And if that isn't enough you have to be coached by me!

These challenges are a great way to compete and to test your own mental fortitude by ether equal or slightly better athletes. There is no way that you should feel intimidated or unable to compete at at least a competitive level. Even if you get smoked you can hold your head high and know that you went out there and did the best you could and left it all out there on the gym floor. And, when is the last time some of you stepped out and were involved in a competition of this caliber? That in and of itself is an accomplishment! You don't have to be like my sister in this middle pic competing in last years 09 Crossfit Games or like myself in a clean competition. Just get out there and test yourself and see what your made of. The only person judging you is you. So get out there and take advantage of the friendly but competitive competitions that we or any other Crossfit gym's put on.

So, like I said about the 10 Crossfit Games are happening this coming weekend and we a have a slew of athletes competing. The Games will be streamed online and there will be live updates happening throughout the weekend so support our individual athletes and our affiliate team. I will do the best I can to update my blog and post new pics as the Games are happening.
