2012 Crossfit Games Season is upon us.  

Read all about The CrossFit Games on the official website.

Tonight at 6:30pm CFW will hold a candid discussion for those interested in competing in the 2012 Crossfit Open set to begin in February. Topics will include physical and mental preparedness, proper nutrition and what it takes to be a games competitor.

Not sure?  Just come to the meeting.  It will help you decide.

” The will to win is important, but the will to prepare to win is vital” – Joe Paterno

45 years or older?  Then you’re a Master and you should sign up for the CF Games.  Read Scott Smith’s take on it…

      “The Crossfit Games are for everybody, especially the Masters crowd.  If you are 45 or older I strongly encourage you to give it a try.  Let’s face it, we aren’t as strong or fast as we were when we were younger but we can be fitter than we have ever been.  It is hard to gauge just how fit we are when we are competing with the young ‘uns so the Games are a perfect opportunity to see how you compare to the people your own age.  And here is a secret – the odds of you qualifying for the Finals are much better than for the people who aren’t Masters because there just aren’t many of us competing.    The first step takes place in our own gym so there is no travel commitment – only a commitment to train and develop into that beast that lies within.  If we can get enough Masters interested, we will organize some Master’s only WODs leading up to the Games.  And ladies, this includes you.  You are much stronger than you realize when compared to others your same age.”
-Scott Smith, Crossfit Master, USAW 3rd Place National Champion Master, and straight up badass role model for us young’uns.


To borrow a phrase from a song, “I am not as good as I once was, but I am good once as I ever was!”  We are an inspiration to the young ‘uns so let’s do our part and show up.

Scott and Pat, true badass role models for us young'uns

    Mr. Scott and Ms. Pat…you both hold a special place in my heart. You both are role models inside the gym and out. You have both aways embraced me, encouraged me, and found a strength in me I had no idea existed. Thank you for all you guys do and for always showing up….
    Ms. Pat hit a pr on her deadlift Monday….hardwork always pays off!

    What a great week of pics. First we have Nathan to admire, now we have the Smith’s. What a testament to crossfit’s ability to cater to any age group! Monday was the first time I got to really see Ms. Pat in action….and wow. She threw up the bench weight in her group of 3 without any hesitation! Totally fearless. There’s much to admire!

    Scott and Pat, you two are inspirations and role models in every way. You are by far the most positive people at CFW, always willing to do a little extra work to accomplish your goals, whether oly lifting or crossfit. I’m proud to work with you day in and day out. I really do believe that you both can make the games this year. I admire your fitness work outside of the gym as well-half marathons and climbing, hiking etc. Keep up the good work!

    Monday was the first time I have really gotten to work out with you both other than saying hi here or there. Was great to see you guys and how focused you are inside of here. Scott has always been very encouraging with me and I have always appreciate that about him. I hope you both do go out for the games and I am sure that you will both kill it!

  6. Scott S says:

    Thanks for all the love out there! As I have said many times – thanks for taking us seriously and letting us be a part of all this. We are constantly amazed by all we see at CFW. It seems like everyone lives life with such vitality it is infectious. So if you are hesitant about trying that next great adventure- get some! Look forward to seeing some great Open times soon!
