CrossFit Games Party (Tue 5/25/10)

For those of you who don’t already know, the 2010 CrossFit Games are going to be held at the Home Depot Center in L.A. on July 16-18. This is a grueling test to find out who is the world’s fittest man and woman, and is one of the most inspiring things I’ve ever seen.

CrossFit HQ is going all out this year and streaming the games live over the web, and we’ve got something special planned for the event. We’re going to get a projector, a barbecue, some dead animal to grill and some beverages to consume, and host a party at the gym to watch Mikko Salo fight to defend his title (Tonya Wagner has announced she’s not going to do the individual competition, but focus on the Affiliate Cup instead). Saturday and Sunday (and probably some on Friday too), we’re going to check the CrossFit Games website to find out what the workouts are going to be, and then we’re going to do them. Shortly after we’re done, we’re going to turn the live streaming on, point the projector at the wall, and watch how they’re *supposed* to be done by some of the fittest athletes in the world.

Every one of you have at least one person you know who would *love* CrossFit if they would just come in and give it a shot. Well this is a great chance to show them what it’s all about – bring them in, have them watch all of us idiots do the insanity that they’ve come up with for the Games, and then hang out with all of us grilling burgers and other various meats while seeing what CrossFit is really all about. It’s going to be a blast, and I’m really looking forward to it!

Please RSVP for yourself and anyone you may be bringing (I’ll put a registration form up on the website in the next few days) so we’ll know how much food to get. This will all be completely free – just bring a friend and come play.
