CrossFit 2600 is sending a team and one individual athlete
to the Regional CrossFit Games in Wollongong this weekend, we thought you
should meet the team!
Most of them will be familiar to Team 2600 members as
coaches putting you through your paces at the box, but here’s a little bit more
info about each of them.
Only two Canberra-based boxes will join the 28 other teams
from Australia and New Zealand at the Wollongong games. This is CrossFit 2600’s
second Regional competition and the second time we have sent a team and
individual athletes. At 2600 our aim is to help you achieve your fitness goals
and our coaches are aiming for a few goals of their own at Regionals.
The team will head to Wollongong on Thursday afternoon,
which means classes will be interrupted while the competition is being held.
The final class for this week (14 May to 20 May) will be 9.30am Thursday 17
May. We will be back to normal classes on Monday 21 May. We appreciate your
understanding for the closure. Many of you will be joining us to support the
team and Michael Roach in the Gong – if you’re interested in coming along
tickets can be purchased at http://premier.ticketek.com.au/shows/show.aspx?sh=CROSSFIT12
