If you know me or have read my about me section here on my website you know that I have a love hate relationship with CrossFit. If you don’t follow along with CrossFit, just recently we finished the CrossFit Open. The Open is a series of workouts over five weeks where people from all over the world compete. Whoever is in the top place at the end of the five weeks moves on to regionals and then the top athletes from regionals move on to the CrossFit games.
Every Friday for the five weeks my gym family at Yorkville CrossFit got together to do the workout and/or cheered everyone on. I took pictures on Friday nights. I loved walking around the gym watching the athletes. I loved being able to photograph them at a moment when they are unstoppable. There is so much mental and physical strength that go hand in hand with these workouts. I hope that when they see photographs of themselves during these workouts, they see how strong they are and how far they have come. Here are a few of my favorite shots from the last five weeks. Congrats to everyone who completed the Open! You guys rocked it! An even bigger congrats goes out to one of our gym athletes Kimberly Carlson, 2017 Masters Qualifiers Athlete, #152 World Wide.
