The best advertisement for your CrossFit affiliate is you.

MegaSmall.jpg

Before I get to the guts of this article I think you need to know a few things about me. I am opinionated; tend to talk when I should listen. Offer advice when none is asked for. Have made an ass of myself more times than not by opening my mouth when I shouldn’t. Have a tendency to rub people the wrong way, and butt in when I shouldn’t. But with all these faults, it still doesn’t make me wrong most of the time, it makes me a bad messenger. If you’re reading this, regardless of your opinion of me, I hope it will sink in and possibly help.

Five benefits of joining a CrossFit Affiliate.

SavingUpPig.jpg

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.

CrossFit FTF Fresno-Clovis 3rd Annual Fitness Challenge





UPDATE! 2/19/12. Final Results Near Bottom of the page. Whenever I cover an event, regardless of what it is, I never really know what to expect until I get there. The CrossFit FTF Fresno/Clovis 3rd Annual Affiliate Fitness Challenge was no exception. My original intent was to shoot some photos, take down some details and head back to the hotel a few hours later and relax at the pool. That did not happen, because the event was much larger than I expected. In fact, I was pretty shocked at the number of athletes and spectators in attendance. As I stood there taking it all in, I had to devise a new plan for this article. I knew that there was no way I could cover every WOD at each station, which meant that there was no way to accurately write a sports article with a play by play. So I opted to tell the story with photos. I made up my mind early to shoot as many as photos as possible, showing the diversity of the field and talent at this obviously popular event.

What to expect for your first ever WOD at CrossFit Bako.



















If you’ve never done CrossFit before or if you’re wondering what to expect on your first visit to an affiliate, I will help shed a little light. A couple of weeks ago I visited CrossFit Bako to do an interview with the owners and to experience my first ever affiliate WOD. I have been doing CrossFit for a while now, but it is usually a solo venture. I’m not in fantastic shape, but I’m not a couch potato either. I went into my first ever affiliate WOD with one half feeling confident and the other half feeling scared.
