The end of an era, the last group On Ramp class…for now!

Today marks the end of the On Ramp program as we know it and the beginning of another season of the CrossFit Games!  As the months and years have slowly ticked by, many aspects of the training and community at Paradiso CrossFit have changed.  The growth and inclusion of CrossFit competitions is a major part of this evolution and has increased exposure to CrossFit in general.  While you may see the local CrossFit competitions and the CrossFit Games as an integral and normal part of our community, it has not always been this way!  I have had the pleasure of watching the CrossFit Games go from a backyard bbq competition with a handful of unknowns, into a full fledged international sport, with sponsored athletes, ESPN coverage, and a $250,000 prize to crown the “Fittest on Earth”.  The success and training for this ultimate fitness challenge has encouraged and inspired other smaller events for those that love to compete and challenge themselves physically.  Over the past year, I have been vocal about the importance of participating in these events no matter what your fitness level.  Competing is not about winning or losing!  How many people go run a marathon to actually win the event?  Its all about the experience and doing your best!  This is the same mentality that we should look at for CrossFit competitions!  I am here today to tell you to register for the CrossFit Games Open Sectionals!  There is no safer way to participate in a CrossFit competition and something that you will not regret!  Registration starts today and will be open until the 26th!

Over the course of the next month we will be discussing how this program will run and getting ramped up for the Games Season.  If you don’t know anything about the Games, check out these links from the official website for some background info:
