Happy Friday!


We have more gym peeps competing this weekend at the Battleground SouthBay event in San Pedro.April is National Autism Awareness Month. Proceeds from the event benefit Train 4 Autism Foundation & its crossfit for special needs projects.

One team of four (Gegi Van De Walker, Katrina Parsons, Steve Mann, and Keegan) are competing in the scaled division and Erin Carraway is competing in the Masters division.

While Gegi and Katrina are fresh from their 3rd place finish in the rxd division 2 weekends ago, this will be Steve and Keegan’s first comp and we want as much support as possible. In addition Steve just took an awesome job in Montana so after being a big part of our community he will be leaving us. This is a great time to show your support and send him off with a little cheer. Heck he even flew back just to throw down.

The area around San Pedro is pretty cool so if you want to make a trek and venture around outside the Orange Bubble this is an excellent time.

Heat times have not been released yet, so check on our Facebook group later today and Saturday for updates.

Below are the details and we hope to see some Balboans out there.

You know who likes to row…that guy.. he does it so much he has shrunken himself down to the size of a 5 year old. It never ceases to amaze me what the kids around the gym will pick up. This little guy has been with hanging around since he was about 2 and really didnt enjoy himself at all. Now, the gym is his playground. He improvises games and movement around all of the apparatus. But beyond the playful nature he has managed to pick up some pretty darn good technique with regard to rowing, throwing slam balls over his shoulder, pull ups and countless other primal movements. To him and to all the kids, its not working out it is just play. So next time you are thinking about how hard the “workout is” remember its just play after all.
