Albany CrossFit had some great representation at the New Kids On The Block Competition. Two of our newest athletes, Paula Carciu and Ashley Peterson participated in their first all-day CrossFit competition on May 2 at CrossFit Spur. The workouts in the competition were created for CrossFit athletes with less than one year of experience but ready for a healthy dose of competition. This grueling day of workouts helped Ashley and Paula realize they can push themselves beyond their comfort zone and achieve things they didn’t think were possible. They each did 3 WODs that tested their cardiovascular capacity, agility, balance, strength and muscular endurance. It was especially impressive seeing them doing deadlifts in an 8-minute AMRAP at a weight near their 1 or 2 rep max.
Way to go Paula and Ashley!
