With the CrossFit Games season getting ready to kick off with the CrossFit Open in a few weeks I thought it would be a good time to put into perspective what CrossFit is truly all about.

The CrossFit Games and the CrossFit season is an awesome time watching some amazing athletes do some amazing things. But the CrossFit regionals and games athletes are such a small part of what CrossFit is really all about.


The CrossFit Affilates (CrossFit Saved and CrossFit gyms worldwide) is really all about longevity, being your best, and having a great time while you do it.

Heidi & Troy

We learn to squat so when we are 90 we can get up and down from a chair with ease.

We learn to run because we want to chase around our grandkids.

We learn to burpee so we can get up off the ground with ease.

We high five, cheer each other on, and we work hard together because we all have the same mission…

To be the healthiest versions of ourselves.

This whole way of life isn’t just for a time to get into shape. It is a lifestyle we choose to make other areas of our lives better.

Setting a new PR is so much fun and is a part of the whole process but putting off the nursing home and being able to live life to the fullest is really what it is all about.

This is the big picture that we are chasing…. We are building a foundation of health and fitness that will keep us HAPPY, HEALTHY, and FIT well into our 90s!
