Hello my lovely readers! I want to implore you to listen (well read) about the fabulous Garage Games 1 Event coming up next weekend (14th-16th). This is the biggest CrossFit event in the country based on total competitors. It will be totally awesome, and I want you to come to it!
The greatest thing about this event is the realization of a movement that I started, which is referenced by the hashtag, #BeThe1 This movement is focused on every individual being the superstar athlete who changes the course of history. Often we celebrate those who are pro athletes, or who are very special or gifted in their field. When we should be celebrating the everyday. The “steady as she goes”, and the “I am staying the course”.
The point of it, is that you are the one to be celebrated! And it comes to life with 900+ competitors who will take to the floor of the competition, battling it out. But some of these people, will be competing in their very first competition. Some as beginners… meaning they are true beginners in their sport, or in this case, there will be youths and teens as well! All being celebrated for their efforts towards health!
The best way to see this, is up close and personal! As a volunteer! So if you would be interested in volunteering, then you can sign up here: GARAGE GAMES VOLUNTEER
And my wife will be the one to get you into a role that doesn’t stress you. It is an awesome event, wild at times. But the greatest part, again, is to celebrate the victory of competition with the beginners and youths.
Now, a little background, what is a Garage Games Event, or CrossFit competition? Well, if you haven’t seen the CrossFit Games on ESPN 2, you are missing out! This is awesome stuff to behold. Individuals and teams given tasks to accomplish… set amounts of work, and they race to do it. For example, a team has to accomplish 100 thrusters with a barbell, 100 kettlebell swings, 100 burpees with a wall ball throw. And 60 Muscle ups (the thing that male gymnasts do to go from beneath the rings, to on top of the rings). They will do it fast, with intensity, and there will be hundreds of people cheering them on.
I started The Garage Games with my three partners in The Garage – A CrossFit Gym, 5 years ago. And we have grown to the number one CrossFit Series of competitions in the country, with over 150 events in 2013, and a plan for 170+ in 2014. This is an outlet for my creativity, and my message of health. And will eventually be the thing that lets me tell many people, about the value of chiropractic. So please, please, please come and be a part of this event! Thanks for reading, Be Well and Be Blessed! – Dr. E
