Coach Rick is a CrossFit Legend (in Africa)

9 May

Next weekend on May 18th-20th Coach Rick will look to improve on last year’s stellar performance at the CrossFit NorCal Regional competition. And he needs your help to make it happen. So why not join the FIT contingent screaming in support of Rick at the competition next weekend?

Check here for directions to the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds and ticket information.

Our last post on Rick highlighted his incredible finish in 37th place out of nearly 1500 competitors in the NorCal region. This is impressive in its own right considering that the NorCal region is among the world’s toughest regions.

How tough you ask?

Well, let’s break it down. Consider Rick’s performance in the CrossFit Open, the worldwide competition where only the top 60 male and female athletes in each region advance to the next stage. Using DataWod.com, Rick’s performance over the five Open workouts would’ve have put him in very elite company in other regions of the world.

He would have finished third in Latin America.

Second in Asia.

And he wold have dominated the competition to take first in Africa.

So, what’s the moral of the story? Should Rick move his wife and kids to Africa in order to lay claim to CrossFit greatness? (I mean, how many people can say they are the top CrossFit athlete in an entire continent, right?)

Of course Rick isn’t going anywhere. And he isn’t phased by statistical comparisons. Rick knows exactly how tough the NorCal region is, and how on any given weekend it’s anyone’s competition to win.

If you’ve never been to a CrossFit competition, this is an excellence chance to see Rick face off against some of the fittest athletes on earth.

Several of FIT’s trainers will be there. Will you?
