Cheers To 15 Years of CrossFit Games at FirePower.

A message from Coach Annie, Assistant Head Coach.

Here's to the CrossFit Open 2024, a celebration of STRENGTH & COMMUNITY.

Cheers to our athletes, coaches, and supporters for making this an unforgettable experience. Throughout the Open, our athletes pushed their limits, embraced the challenge, and showcased their incredible resilience.

We witnessed personal records shattered, new skills mastered, and bonds of camaraderie strengthened. Every burpee, every drop of sweat, and every cheer echoed the spirit of FirePower and the unwavering determination of our athletes.I loved hearing about and witnessing athletes’ improvements and triumphs.

I hope that you were all able to watch a friend do something amazing. As an athlete I bemoan the constant inclusion of thrusters in the Open (I’d even prefer more burpees!) but I relish the environment of the Open.

I loved the weekly rhythm; I looked forward to the workout release on Thursdays and the hype and anticipation of Friday leading to Friday night-lights. I loved the adrenaline rush and the insane intensity that the crowd, the music, the judges and fellow competitors inspire. I appreciated the cold drinks post WOD too!

The energy, enthusiasm, and support that filled our gym during the Open were truly inspiring.

Congratulations and best of luck to all the athletes that have tackled the Open and will be continuing on to the quarterfinals. Training continues now with a renewed desire to get stronger, listen more intently to my very clever coaches (that part may be slightly self serving), fitter and more resilient.

In health,Coach Annie
