With the official kick-off of the CrossFit Games 2015 tomorrow in Carson, California, we asked some of our top Fitmark Ambassadors to weigh in on the kind of competition Dave Castro has in store for CrossFit competitors this year.
Neal Maddox | Xtreme Athletics: This is a tough one! I think Dave Castro will throw in some dirty versions of the Girls like he does every year. Or maybe a version of Murph with muscle-ups and and HSPUs instead of the pull-ups and squats.
Sarah Hopping Estrella | Arena Ready: I hope he puts in an obstacle course!
Dan Krueger | Spartan Race: I hate to speculate on what that evil genius has in store, but whatever it is – it will be brutal!
Diane Fu | FuBarbell: I want Dave to throw in an obstacle course… something like a Spartan Race meets Ninja Warrior with some CrossFit Games-style flair! That would be the ultimate melting pot of fun.
Steve Hoover | Team Terminus: Every year Dave Castro and Rogue come up with some crazy new equipment designed to force the teams to work together. We have seen Big Bob, The Worm, The Pig, The Swim Sled. I am really looking forward to the mystery element this year. I am going out on a limb this year and predicting some kind of paddling (boat/raft) in the ocean for the teams. I think it would be a good test of communication, strategy and team work. Whatever it is… Team Terminus will be ready!
Noelle Adams | Rocklin CrossFit: I think he’s going to throw in more crazy gymnastics moves like never before. Things like max free-standing handstand holds or deficit free-standing handstand push-ups or maybe even muscle-ups into ring HSPUs, but before this he’ll have a max lift like at the Regionals or make them do a 2-mile farmer carry first!
Well, there you have it! Our friends have spoken! We can’t wait to see how the competition shapes us this year. Fitmark will be there soaking up all the action, giving away free goodies and showcasing our exclusive line of sports and fitness bags. Make sure you stop by and give us a holler!
Good luck to all the amazing athletes competing! Let the Games begin…!
