Every year we get ready for the Reebok CrossFit games Open, and every year we go through a sort of ritual leading up to the first announcement. Shortly after the first WOD, the reality that we may not be headed to Carson sets in and emotions for many begin to takeover. Below is a fun look at what I call the “Many faces of the Reebok CrossFit Games Open Competitor” and what many go through from my perspective.
There are a bunch of choices for outfitting your CrossFit box or garage gym these days. You have an empty space and need to fill it, but with what? To simplify the process and save you hours doing searches I’ve down the work for you. The list is in no particular order. If you feel others need to be added, just give me the info in the comments section below and I'll add them.

So you have some concerns about joining a CrossFit Affiliate. You’re either worried about the cost, or you’re worried about getting hurt, or both. These are both valid and understandable concerns. I bet you’ve already spent a small fortune on this fad diet, or that new exercise gizmo, and are a little apprehensive about spending even more money to get the same results as before (none).Plus you figure, why spend more than it costs to join a local gym right?
Or you’ve read about CrossFit, seen the results of people you know, but are worried about getting hurt. Heck, the thought of doing some of the stuff you see online is scary, I know. But if done correctly the exercises are very beneficial and the risk is minimal compared to the rewards.
