BIG John

577307_300983326648119_883205765_n

Five thousand four hundred and ten…

5,410

That’s how many men entered the Reebok CrossFit Open in the Master’s division, age 40-44.

Five grand, plus…. from all over the world…that’s a lot

Big John came in third.  THIRD…earning himself a well-deserved trip to California to compete in the Reebok CrossFit World Games.

I know at our gym Big John is just a freak. He’s Big John; arguably the best male athlete we have.  We expect him to be good.  He has to be good.  He’s Big John…father of three, husband to Kristin, ER doctor, and a genetic freak… Of course there’s a few other elite guys that could give him a run for his money.  But he’s Big John, he’s strong, he’s fast, and he’s got an engine that would leave most 20-year-olds flat on their backs.

Folks, sit back and get ready to watch his training come to fruition.  This is an opportunity that most could only dream of…He gets to live it next week.

John will begin competition on Tuesday, 23rd, and it will extend until Thursday, 25th.

There are quite a few of us heading to Cali to act as his cheering squad.  This being said, expect a few of your coaches to be absent next week.  We will be running ALL regular classes, but you will see some new coaches in your classes.  Please be patient with them, as your faces may be new to them.  Let them know if you need any modifications, or have a nagging injury.  Please be patient with Coaches Jess, Rachel, Paul, Blanco, Kelly, and Chu, as there are carrying the load of all of us coaches while we are gone.

We are MORE than excited to cheer John on, as this is a privilege he has rightfully earned.  You, too, can watch the event live on the Internet.  Stay tuned to our Facebook page for the link.

This is a time for SCF to be swelling with pride.

LET’S GO BIG JOHN!! It’s GAME time!!!

Let's get ready to rumble!!

Let’s get ready to rumble!!

    Best of luck John in your WODs. Remember to take your shirt off as much as possible – that alone will scare the bejezus out of anyone competing next to you. Enjoy this moment, you’ve earned it and you deserve it.
