Weekend Fun!!

To say that this past weekend was a busy one for CrossFit Beyond would be an understatement! It was jam packed with all sorts of events and activities, from our athletes doing 14.3 for Friday's WOD, to several members getting their heads shaved for our St. Baldrick's event on Sunday, not to mention the Rumble in between on Saturday at CrossFit Aevitas!

Friday kicked off with the 14.3 WOD. An 8 minute AMRAP of:
10 deadlifts, 135 / 95 lb. 
15 box jumps, 24 / 20 inch
15 deadlifts, 185 / 135 lb.

noonWe had about 60 members complete it by the end of the day on Friday.

Several members saved 14.3 for the Capital Region Rumble event that was hosted by CrossFit Aevitas on Saturday. In addition to doing 14.3, they  completed several other WODs as well! Great job to all of our members who made it out to represent CrossFit Beyond at the rumble!s8
