Our team is counting down the days until the 2016 CrossFit® Games! This will be our fourth year attending the big event and we’ve gathered some awesome insider tips for attendees over the years. If you have never attended The Games, or if you’re on the fence about making another trip, here are the six reasons your box should go this year.
1). All of Your Favorite Athletes Will Be There
From Camille Leblanc-Bazinet and Mat Fraser to our friends at Backcountry CrossFit and Ben Smith, all of your favorite athletes will be in one place competing for the coveted title of being The Fittest on Earth. You may have watched them compete on TV, but it’s completely different watching them lift, climb and push their limits in person.
2). It’s a Great Way to Build Motivation at Your Box
Do you have athletes on the cusp of being able to compete at this level? Or do you have athletes who are close to getting difficult movements like muscle-ups? CrossFit® Corporate says it best, “Sometimes the best perspective comes from a stint in the stands.” Encouraging your athletes to attend this event is a great way to motivate them to take their training to the next level.
3). Get the Latest Gear for Your Box
Several of the hottest brands in the industry will be debuting new products at The Games. Do a couple loops around Vendor Village to ensure you’ll be in the know on the latest and greatest gear for your training and your athletes.
4). Walk Away with Awesome Freebies
Many of your favorite brands will have awesome daily prizes, competitions and giveaways. Some booths will also have famous athletes stop by for photo and autograph sessions. At the Zen Planner booth, we’ll have daily fitness competitions, with awesome prizes like Hylete backpacks and signed CrossFit Krypton gear, so be sure to compete for your chance to win!
5). Be an Active Part of the Community You’ve Helped Build
Community is at the epicenter of CrossFit®. Whether it’s at a local box or on Facebook, the supportive, amazing community is always front and center. You’ve built a stellar community at your box, take the opportunity to be part of and network with the worldwide community at The Games.
6). Visit Your Friends at Zen Planner
